Passed the VCP4 exam


Yesterday i did the VCP4 exam and passed with a score of 475.  The exam has 85 questions and for a non English speaker you get 90 minutes to complete the exam. The passing score is 300 out of 500. The exam has 90 multiple choice/selects questions. The exam is harder than the VCP3 exam, but with proper preparation and experience it’s not that hard.

To prepare the exam i used the list in my previous blog “Resources to prepare for VMware Certified Professional (VCP4) on vSphere 4”article  and i attended the “What’s new” partner training.

Now i can call myself  VCP2, VCP3 and VCP4 certified. The next step is the “VMware Certified Design Expert (VCDX)” certification. The VCDX is only on VI3 on the moment. I will wait till the VCDX includes vSphere support. Maybe the Master VCP is released in the meantime. We will see.

  1. Hi Alan,
    I had questions on the VMware Configuration Maximums, Storage, VMware Clusters, troubleshooting VMs etc. A lot of areas in the blueprint are asked.
