VCAP 6 - Deploy: 

On Aug 5th Monday 2019, I have given VCAP 6 (VMware certified Advanced professional - DCV ) and completed with score of 346. It was a indeed the second toughest exam I have completed till date, of course first comes the Design which I am still struggling to crack.

Exam had 27 questions with 305 minutes, Time is a crucial factor to complete, finally I ended by answering just 23 questions and I left the exam hall disappointed for not answering all the them. Got my result at 11:30 PM IST the next after the exam and was really excited to see the final result, was really proud to get first VCAP certification which I was dreaming from past many years.

I have spent several hours on labs practicing different functionalities and looking at all the features / options available. Since I have been working on same vSphere version from past 4 years, I literally got used to most of the options in vCenter page.

Apart from labs, I have refereed below pages and this really to answer the questions without much hassle:
