VCP6-DTM: Study guide

Brilliant, eh?
Brilliant, eh?

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 (

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 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 🙂

Oh, where to begin? Let's see.. I lived in the US for 13 years (3 years in NYC and 10 years in Los Angeles area). I'm a huge MMORPG fan (I've been a die-hard World of Warcraft player since mid-2007 -- For the Horde!). And have numerous tattoos, including one about VMware and one about Warcraft. I enjoy the occasional cigar with a single malt (for a while, I even had a cigar aficionado blog). I used to enjoy long distance solo cycling and am hoping to restart it here in Nova Scotia. I live just outside of Halifax, Nova Scotia with my wife, our 3 cats and our Golden Retriever.

I'd love to hear from y'all. Leave me a message or comment!
