    Morning all

    Due to the current pandemic, VMware have this year decided to run VMworld entirely online. If you don't know what VMworld is, it's a conference held twice a year, once in the US, usually Las Vegas or San Francisco, and once in EMEA - Barcelona. Usually running for four days, its where you can hear all of the latest and greatest from VMware, but it's so much more than that. There's absolutely tons of enablement and training from our finest.

    This year, it's entirely free to sign up, I'd highly encourage you to do so here: https://www.vmworld.com/myvmworld.jspa

    From here you'll see a schedule builder where you can select your sessions.

    Here's a great blog on what you should know and look out for
    https://blogs.vmware.com/vmworld/20...html?src=so_5a314d05e49f5&cid=70134000001SkJn

    For our purposes there's also tons in there to help you pass exams, both Live and recorded sessions such as:

    How to Pass the VCP-DCV 2020 Certification Exam [HCP2056]
    Exam Guide Review: VCP-CMA [MCOP2632]
    Exam Guide Review: VCP-DW [DWDE2630]
    Exam Guide Review: VCP-DCV [MCOP2628]
    Exam Guide Review: VCP-NV [VCNC2629]

    Any questions, I work for VMware, be my pleasure to answer

    James

    Hello,

    Hope you all are fine. I am currently preparing for Vsphere ICM 6.7 foundation exam, as undertook training last year on 6.7 foundation. I was wondering if anyone here can guide me in getting some labs specific to 6.7 foundation exam. After the foundation exam, I plan to take on 6.7 professional exam to get VCP-DCV, which is going to retire in Jun 2021. Have tried HOL, but couldn't find or workout specific structure or mapping labs to exam objectives.

    Hi @IT-Rock, thank you for asking. If you work with 6.7, it definitely makes sense to sit that exam as this will make it easier for you, and 6.7 is still in general support with us until 2022. You're right about the Hands on Labs. We don't have one geared up towards passing our exams, and instead we provide labs for various real world scenarios, and to get a feel for our products.

    What you have to do is to leverage our HOLs, or your home lab if you have one, to match what we are asking for in the exam Blue Print (Exam Study Guide) found here

    I cut these into a word doc and mark off as I go. I used to print them off, but save the trees and all that.

    My questions for you. Have you sat this exam before? Have you looked at the blue print? If you want, create a VCP DCV 6.7 Study thread and I'll work on it with you. This post was more for VMworld. Thanks, Jim

    Hello Jim,
    Thanks for taking time to reply. I will be reentering the IT field after many years. I haven't taken this exam or any VMware exam. I have the blueprint and have been using it occasionally. Do you know any specific book which covers all the blueprint objectives? With regards to homelab, I did look for low budget devices, but gave up on it due to cost. Any ideas on low budget homelab, which can be used for both VMware and Cisco certs. Thanks.
