After a couple of months of working through the blueprint and producing my Study Guide I travelled up to Global Knowledge in Leeds to attempt the exam.
I was originally due to take it in mid December, but after an untimely laptop crash, 3 days before my exam, which really was the final straw on top of everything else going on at that time, I had to reschedule and today was the earliest slot I could get.
Anyway, the exam was pretty much as expected, with a few slightly obscure questions that I don’t really recall being in the blueprint. I completed it in a little over an hour, and got 403 marks (passing score 300, maximum 500), which doesn’t seem too bad. There just isn’t the time pressure on the VCP exams that there is on the VCAP-DCA.
A big thank you to all the bloggers that have shared their knowledge, their findings, and their advice, and I hope that my study guide has given something back to the community.
