I successfully ended 2023 by passing the VMware advanced exam based on NSX-T 3.x, which made me become a new VCAP-NV Deploy certified, but also a VCIX-NV as I previously passed the advanced design exam.
It’s actually been a while since I thought of taking that exam and I’m glad I finally did it 😃.
As I usually publish exam review posts after passing an exam, this time is no exception and I’m happy to share with you my experience.
Getting ready for the exam
First Step First
Well, as usual, the first thing to do is to review the exam guide or blueprint. You’ll find there some exam details you need to know as well as all the different sections that will be covered during the exam.
On January 22 2021, I successfully passed the 2V0-41.20 exam based on NSX-T 3.0 which made me a new happy VCP-NV. I thought it would be nice to share with you my experience with this exam.
How to prepare for the exam
For the record, I was initially going for the NSX-T 2.4 exam before it expires but I found myself pretty busy so I preferred to wait a little bit and get prepared for version 3.0.
I sat a while back for the NSX-T 2.4 ICM class that helped me a lot to understand the product. I have to say that this was one of the best course I ever had and I’d like to thank again the instructor Christian Regent who became later on my VCI mentor 🙂
Last month, I was happy to successfully pass my VCAP-DCV 6.5 Design exam that has also validated my VCIX-DCV 2019.
The exam was very challenging and tough from my point of view but I would say it was also fair. All the questions were from topics that you can find in the exam blueprint. So you know exactly what you have to study before taking the exam.
But I have to be honest with you, I didn’t pass on my first attempt. The thing is that I rushed to fast to take the exam thinking that I was ready but I wasn’t.
