    I had a couple of months off for one reason or another but I am back today as one of my goals was to attain my VCAP (although initially it was 2 VCAPs and a VCIX but let's not harp on that).

    Having been made redundant at the end of Jan I took some me time off, I spent a month in Thailand (Phuket), came back and got myself a role that meant travelling to Malaga every other week for two months, that role came to a sudden end when the client decided to put my project on indefinite hold so I decided to use that time to really study for my VCAP 5.5 DCA (I had 3.5 weeks to study).

    I sat the exam this morning and am happy to announce that I passed my VCAP DCA on the first attempt.

    What I can tell you is that it's a hard but fair exam but I really enjoyed it.

    Now that I am not working \ studying so hard I have more time to dedicate back here :)

    I loved the hard slog it was to get the right material in the brain to pass the exam, going for either DCD or CMA next.
