VCP-DCV and VCP-NV: AKA What I did on winter vacation.

Just kidding, but it makes for a good title.  Seriously though I am taking the VMware NSX: Install, Configure, Manage [V6.0] course this week.  As usual I am taking it live online.  I am always a skeptic, but this course has been good.  I have to admit, I cheated and read most of Networking for VMware Administrators, an exceptional read, which helped since my networking background is pretty light.  I will post a final opinion this weekend, but so far the course is far better than I expected.  I am planning to write the VCP-NV exam mostly because I think it is an important technology, and the cert forces me to study, plus it lends credibility in some circles.

Since I have so much free time, I have also decided to take the VMware Certified Professional 5 – Data Center Virtualization (VCP5-DCV) Delta exam which was re-released here.  From what I can tell, this appears to be the same VCP550 exam, which seems strange for a delta exam, but it is online which saves me a trip.  I am mostly taking it so I can maintain my streak, and to prove to myself I can pass it again.  I am going through the blueprint at length and reading everything I can find.  I will put up some thoughts once I complete it, but I suspect it will be similar to previous ones.

One final thought, if your doing the delta exam to get it done soon, it is only available until March 10, 2015.  Best of luck and if I can help study let me know.
