Somehow I missed posting this, but the deadline for upgrading a VCP to version 4 without needing the required course has been extended through the end of January, 2010. For any existing VCP3’s, this is a great opportunity to save the $1800 for the official course as long as you are able to pass the VCP4 test. To add icing to the cake, VMware has also extended the free retake if you do not pass on your first attempt.
