I didn’t actually study much since the last attempt, I think the difference this time around was a good nights sleep!  I left 2 questions unanswered (some research for me to do) but felt I answered the remaining questions well, I finished the exam with 10 minutes to spare.  I received an email from VMware the following day saying that my transcript had been updated but I’m yet to receive the official ‘Pass’ email that tells me the score, I’ll chase them up in the coming days.  So that’s it..VCAP DCD and VCAP DCA passed, I didn’t quite hit my initial target of passing both exams in 3 months, maybe it was a bit ambitious, but I’m very glad to have them both on my CV.  It’s been a great learning experience and I feel it’s broadened my knowledge, I’m still undecided if I’ll attempt the VCDX, I start a 6 month contract on Monday and expect to be kept very busy so I’ll have a think and decide in a couple of months.  Good luck to all attempting the advanced exams, there’s no doubt they are challenging but the experience and reward is well worth it!
