VCAP5-DCD Beta exam score report

I took VCAP5-DCD beta exam in February 2012, after 3 months I got email from VMware with a results – I failed :-/ and they promise to send me a score report end of May the latest.  We have July and I still waiting for score report. Today morning I got email from VMware Beta team

Thank you for your patience.  Score reports have been sent to the postal address on record with Pearson VUE.  Yours should be arriving shortly, if not already.

In appreciation of your participation in the beta exam, please find a voucher to cover 100% of the cost of your next attempt.  If you have already scheduled or re-taken the exam, you can contact Pearson VUE to request the voucher be applied to your registration.  Your credit card will be refunded.

Awesome news 🙂 , Thanks VMware !!! it was worth waiting for score report even I knew I failed . So, now it is a time to start preparation for DCD5 and upgrade my VCDX4 to VCDX5.

  • Hope that they will do the same with DCA 🙂 I think I flunked it bigtime also

    • Friend told me he got an email from beta exam team with info about 50% discount voucher

        You missunderstood me Artie. 50% discount should be on vmworld. DCA should have free vouchers as you got for DCD. I have that stated in the last email from them.

        • Hey man, that’s even better 😀

    I just attended vsphere 5 Design workshoot and currently preparing for VCAP5-DCD.
    Any guidance for exam you can give which can be helpfull for me to pass the same.
    Did you analyzed why you failed the exam.

    • Hi

      For sure one of the reasons I failed was I didn’t manage to go through all questions within exam time frame (102 out of 121). In regards to guidance what I can tell is you keep an eye on time, it’s running like a crazy, be prepare for long design scenarios – a lot of reading. Make sure you covered all points from DCD5 blueprint – you will find questions from all. GOOD LUCK.
