Ok. So I’m not the fastest writer in the world. I’m still somewhere trying to work on the 2nd Edition of the VCP-DTM (Desktop Mobility) book and it is a slow slog. I admit that sometimes I let other things take priority and.. oh! look! shiny object!
Oh, wait.. where was I?
Oh.. right. I was asked recently about what to use to study for the upcoming exam and I figured that info might also benefit others. Additionally, you may not realize that you can use the Hands-On Labs even when not at VMworld. So below gives you direction on how best to study for the exam along with suggested HOL labs that can help (the only product we don’t have HOL labs on is vRealize for Horizon but there is a free eLearning that you can use to get a few ideas about the product and how it works: VMware vRealize Operations For Horizon 6 Fundamentals )
For those that prefer to read about something, at this point the only material would be what’s identified on the Blueprint (https://mylearn.vmware.com/mgrReg/plan.cfm?plan=64299&ui=www_cert)
If you expand each section it’ll list supporting documentation. You’ll find additional documentation under “How to Prepare” and “Additional Resources”.
If you need to practice, you can go to http://labs.hol.vmware.com and practice there (it’s free to register and you can do the labs as many times as you want). I’d use the following labs to help prep:
HOL-MBL-1451 – Horizon 6 with View from A to Z
HOL-MBL-1453 – VMware Workspace Portal – Explore and Deploy
HOL-MBL-1455 – Managing Desktops with VMware Mirage
HOL-MBL-1454 – Applied ThinApp – Capture and Deploy Packages
HOL-MBL-1458 – Application Management with VMware App Volumes and Horizon 6
And, as always, if you have questions, do not hesitate to give me a ping 🙂
