My VCAP-DCD exam experience

Just a quick post before I go on a holiday. Today I did my VCAP410-DCD exam. After the VCAP410-DCA exam this was the most difficult exam I ever took. As with the VCAP410-DCA exam I needed the full 240 minutes for the exam. Gladly after finishing the 113 questions I had 15 minutes spare to review some questions I wasn’t sure about. This I learned with the DCA exam. If I initial spend more than 2 minutes on a question (multiple or single choice), I give the answer that come first into my mind and flag the question to be reviewed later on. This worked for me this time.

I cannot review all the detail of the exam, if I do so VMware is going to hunt me down 🙂 but as I mentioned before the exam consists  of 113 questions. Some of them you have to give the correct answer, other a multiple choice. Then there are the ones who take most of your time. The question where you have to make a diagram for example a network design and the question where you have to drag en drop the items on the correct answers.

So witch study material did I use? I almost read all the PDF material in the DCD blueprint guide. The only one I skipped where the one who I think I have enough experience with (installation, kickstart etc).
