VCAP-CMA Design 2022 certification Tips

 This week I finally passed the VCAP-CMA Design 2022 certification. I passed the exam in my second attempt with a score of 324 out of 500 where 300 is required to pass.


I was very confident that I would pass the exam for the first time, but I would not clear in the first attempt .


The Design exams are more like VCP exams with multiple choice questions and Deploy exam totally lab base exam. I am planning to attend the Deploy exam in the coming months.


VCAP-CMA Design 2022 certification consists of 60 questions, and you will have around 145 minutes available. Most of the questions are multiple choice. Some of the questions have a lot of text, which consume more time for reading and understanding. In this exam you really understand the question, what they are asking for. This is one of the biggest things to prepare for in this exam.


As you know, VCAP-CMA Design 2022 certification is a bit tricky, and it was expected. Do more focus on selecting the correct answer. There are few questions that do not have alternatives but by reading the question two and three times you will understand that you need to find the correct answers.
