VCP 5.5 -> 6.0 Delta Exam Information

And here we go again. It seems like just yesterday I upgraded my VCP5-DCV to the VCP5.5-DCV in an attempt to save some money and knock it out early. And here comes the VCP6-DCV.

It looks like VMWare is giving it to us for the bargain price of $225 USD. 45 questions over 75 minutes which is not horrible, although I am getting differing information on this test. I am also seeing 75 questions over 90 minutes. I wonder if they will test us on VCOP's again. Or other barely used technologies like Data Protection. For $225 it is definitely a proctored exam this time. After my previous experience with Pearson Vue I am less then happy with this, hopefully they can keep there systems running for the entire duration of the exam.

Oh Look! A discount:
