VMware VCP7-CMA exam

VMware VCP7-CMA exam

A few months ago in this post I wrote about a new VMware exam which wasn’t listed in the official exam list in these days. Nevertheless, that was time when I almost finished my lab deployment of vRA and taking into account that the exams in beta phase costs only 50 $, I decided to try myself.

I scheduled the exam at 5 september during at the beginning of my holiday. The exam consisted 180 questions! There was 240 minutes for that – thats whole 4 hours, it’s even longer than VCAPs.. After 2 hours and almost 100 questions I was already exhausted. However I tried to stay focused and finished it. Since that time I didn’t have any update about my results on PearsonVue site I was able to see only the information that the exam was taken, whilst the official non-beta exam was released at 1st December. So technically you were able to take it and get the results immediately, while the Beta-takers still didn’t know if they passed or not 🙂

Yesterday in my mailbox I found the envelope from PearsonVue – it was quite strange for me because I’ve never received any envelope directly from PearsonVue. It was a nice suprise for me when I realized that there is my “summary page” with my results inside. Happily I passed – next goal achived by the end of the 2016 🙂

Mystery VCP7-CMA Beta Exam…

Mystery VCP7-CMA Beta Exam…

Today VMware announced the GA version of two VCAP Deployment exams (it’s high time after 1,5 year of VCP6 on the market..)

The first one – VCAP 6 – Datacenter Virtualization Deployment and VCAP 6 – Network Virtualization Deployment.

That’s mean that all VCAP 6 exams are now available in GA version for everyone. However there is an inconvenience for some countries if you live for example in Poland. Unfortunately there is no Pearson Vue test Center in Poland where you can take the exam..Anyway I believe that VMware/Pearson Vue will change it soon.


But what about the VCP7-CMA ?

It’s a really funny story, because it  you try to find anything about it searching the Internet you will not! There was no announcement on VMware site, any information at VMware Education blog, etc.

So, what exacly am I talking about? Due to my frequent verification of Pearson Vue site to check if the deployment exams are already available I discovered VCP7 exam recently.

As I said, it’s quite strange that there is no information about it but as you can see below it does not seem to be a bug.


The conclusion is simple, it’s high time to start the study of vRA 7.x 🙂
