Can I Use Brain Dump or Other 'Guaranteed To Pass' Study Sites When Preparing To Take An Exam?

No VMware approved study source will ever guarantee you a pass and using sites like these is a violation of exam terms and conditions.

Do The Recommended Courses Cover All Of The Material I Will Need To Pass The Exam?

While the recommended courses focus on many of the areas tested in the VMware certification exams, they do not cover all the test materials. Knowledge that can only be gained from hands-on experience is also needed to pass the exams. Refer to the Exam Preparation Guide for details.
