VCP-510 exam and scoring
Posted on 2012-03-13
I have been studying for my VCP-510 for several months now. I took the required course, re read the study material, work on a live VMware cluster and a home lab with VMware 5 and I feel pretty prepared to take the exam. I am just a little concerned that so many people claim the exam is "so difficult". Our VMware instructor even warned us that this is "not a Microsoft exam" and Vmware does not give certs away. But after all this, in researching the exam, it appears the scoring is based on getting 300/500, which to me is 60%. Although I have seen some of the practice questions and many are quite tricky, still scoring a 60 does not seem like something most people with a little experiance cannot do. Am I missing something. Is there something to the scoring that I am not aware of? It just seems like this exam is not going to as difficult as say CISCO or even some of the Microsoft exams that have simulations. Please comment if I am wrong and all advice is welcome. I hope to pass the exam on Saturday and I guess I am just looking for a vote of confidence after all the fear my VMware instuctor put in us.
