VCP6-CMA Study Guide

I’m currently working towards the VCP6-CMA certification. This is an area I am very interested in getting a lot more hands on experience of, so in a similar vein to my VCAP5-DCA study guide, I plan on writing posts on each of the objectives listed on the official VCP6-CMA blueprint, with the aim of taking the certification exam later in the year. This page will serve as a link to those posts – why not bookmark and check back for updates!
