VCAP5-DCD beta exam experience

Last Friday I had a VCAP5-DCD exam. Unfortunately I can’t tell much about questions themselves  but I can give  few advises. All questions were from scope of the Blueprint exam – so be sure that you went for each doc from blueprint. TIME – 🙂 this is a main issue during an exam I left many questions unanswered ,even though that I had experience from VCAP4-DCD, the time was running so fast and believe me or not 4 hours it’s not much. Advice – look at the clock and manage time properly, don’t spend too much time on question which you don’t know the answer because you have to keep in mind that for design questions you will spend more time than average. Like in VCAP4-DCD,  on VCAP5-DCD there is a lot of reading, I would say even more. In general, exam was difficult, more than I was expecting.
