The install and Configure course provides you the required entry to go for your VCP. This course plus my recommendation of having some true experience since not everything is covered in the course to pass this entry VMware certification. The Secure and Analyze is required if you want to have the higher certification. I would recommend you work your way up on and the way up, get your experience. Just realize I know vmware architects that don’t have the entry level VCP (and don’t need it). With VMware, experience is sought out more than the certification paper.
