VMware VCP 5 Exam Revision

I have the VCP5 exam in a couple of weeks, and am in the midst of revision. A couple of excellent resources for those going through the same process:

– TrainSignal VCP revision videos.

– The Simon Long blog (www.simonlong.co.uk/blog/)

– Mastering VMware vSphere 5 book by Scott Lowe.

Update: I have been reading more of Scott’s book and am now deep into Chapter 7: High Availability. Can’t recommend it enough – even if you aren’t taking the exam!

vSphere Clustering 5 Technical Deepdive book by Duncan Epping and Frank Denneman.

– VMware VCP homepage, including the VCP5 exam blueprint, FAQ, VCP Forum and mock exam.

All these are fantastic resources – use them if you are studying for this exam! Any more useful links? Please post comments and add them to this list of resources……

More on results as I take the exam……

    Hi,
    Just wrote mine yesterday. Bottom line…you need to know your work. I had questions that if you have not actually done the install/configurations you would not know the answers.
    HA/DRS/FT/iSCSI/SAN/vSwitch/VDS was at the order of the day and had a lot of those also….scenarios and what you can do and cant.

    The questions at http://www.simonlong.com is a godo start but I did find them easier than that was in the exam.

    Good Luck
