VCP 6.5 DCV Study Plan – Week 0 – Intro

In conjunction with a weekly lunch and learn study group I’m running at my workplace, I’m going to publish a simple set of resources for each of the 10 topics, 1 per week, from the VMware Certified Professional 6.5 Data Center Virtualization (VCP 6.5 DCV) Exam blueprint. The resources will be mainly from the beyond excellent study guide from Vladan Seget and the incredibly useful practice questions cooked up by Simon Long. Alongside that will be links for any documentation VMware recommend for each of the topics.

The aim is for this to be a different format to use for studying this exam, perhaps in more digestible chunks than the entire blueprint PDF.

If you want to judge your existing knowledge of the objectives in each of these sections and track your study progress, take a look at my Study Spreadsheet


The plan is to release these every Wednesday for the next 10 weeks, starting today with this intro article and Week 1; Section 1.
