My Suggested Ordered List for the VCP-CMA 2020 (8 HOLs)

The VCP-CMA 2019 was achieved by passing the exam 2V0-31.19 Professional VMware vRealize Automation 7.6. So, it makes sense to focus on vRealize Automation labs. The docs.vmware.com list in the exam blueprint also mentions: vRealize Business 7.6, vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager, vRealize Orchestrator 7.6 - so we’ll have some of those labs too.

Prioritizing vRealize Automation > vReailize Orchestrator > vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager. Prioritizing Beginner > Intermediate > Advanced.
