Regarding the discussion of no equivalent VCAP exams for the VCDX3 process, that is not accurate. There were 2 written exams between the VCP exam and the design submission.

The VCDX3 path is/was: VCP3/4 exam->Qualification Review->Enterprise Admin exam->Design exam->Create/submit Design->Design approval & VCDX defense=VCDX3.

The Enterprise Admin exam in the VCDX3 path maps to the VCAP-DCA exam on the VCDX4 path.
The Design exam in the VCDX3 path maps to the VCAP-DCD exam on the VCDX4 path.

BTW – thanks for the great tip on the Air Display app for the iPad. Purchased and downloading now despite a few negative reviews.
