Ok, I’ll admit it. I’ve taken the VCP test and didn’t pass. (ok, not sure how many rungs I’ve just fallen on your ladder… I’m sure a few). So let me rationalize make excuses explain. I took the test last year at VMworld without studying much prior. And, I hadn’t had any hand-on experience with ESX 3.5, which was a major problem on my part. So, there’s my case. If it counts, I was just two questions from passing.
Attempt number two – I’m determined to be different this time. I’ll be retaking the test for certification on June 15 – next month – giving me a month to go over all my study materials. I am taking the 3.5 certification exam. Yes, I’m aware vSphere has arrived. That’s exactly why I’m taking this test. One, I need to take it because that’s where my experience lies and two, I need to take it while its still available.
So, any tips, sources, or suggestions for study materials and resources would be greatly appreciated. I am armed with Mike Laverik’s Virtual Infrastructure 3.5 book, my 3.0 courseware and a few study outlines from VMware.
