VCAP-DCA Exam Prep

So the home Lab was deployed and the study started about 6 weeks ago, the exam is booked for the 16th June at 08:15am which is tomorrow morning.

My intention is to go through all the questions and look for the quick wins, once they are completed I will go back through the questions that require a little more thought.  This may change once I’ve clicked  the ‘Start Exam’ link and panic sets in, but I’ll do my best to stick to this strategy.  As for study materials, I’ve been using the VCAP5-DCA Official Cert Guide book which has some good scenarios at the end, I’ve also used  Joshua Andrews fantastic test track lab, a really helpful guy!  I’ve been up and down the exam blueprint many times to make sure I’ve covered each of the topics and of course lot’s and lot’s of practice in the home lab. Finding time to study has been a bit of a challenge as we recently had our second child so I don’t feel as prepared as I would have liked. I did consider re-scheduling the exam, but the next convenient slot was a month away so I decided to just go for it.  So here goes nothing……

Some really good scenario based questions can be found on the links below.
