FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  • Where are Exam Prep Videos/Courses located in the VMware Learning Zone?

    To access Exam Prep videos launch VLZ; you will find Exam Prep videos on "VMware Home" >> "Exam Prep | Full Exam Prep Courses" section

  • Can the Exam Prep videos be used as a substitute for Instructor Led training courses?

    The Exam Prep videos are a fast-paced comprehensive review of the exam objectives and are an excellent way to prepare to take an exam. However, the videos are a supplementary review and not intended to be a substitute for training. If you need or require training, we strongly recommend that you take one of VMware’s high-quality training courses (available in On Demand and Instructor led formats).
