News of the new VCP5-DCV delta exam (VCP550D) was bitter sweet for me. Not minutes before the announcement I decided it couldn’t push back my VCAP-DCA any longer or risk needing to re-take the VCP exam to remain certified for 2 more years…now I have another excuse not to dive in. However, after carefully reviewing the blueprint published at https://mylearn.vmware.com/mgrReg/plan.cfm?plan=51919&ui=www_cert I found that they blueprints are almost idential – I actually had to look several times to make sure I wasn’t looking at the wrong blueprint!
So, what’s new?
- Objective 3.3 – Configure and Administer Software Defined Storage: This objective is focused entirely on VSAN
Yup…that’s it – one new section in the blueprint. This feels a bit more like a new version of the 5.5 VCP, time will tell once I take the “delta” exam. Of course this exam is intended for differences between 5.0 and 5.5 yet is still 65 questions. Curious if anyone has already taken the plunge?
