vSphere VCP 510 Study Guide – Prepping up! (VCP5 resources Updated!)

UPDATED: ( Check out my VCP 5 Experience!  )
Recently heard some things around the rumor mill that the VMware test has recently been changed/updated in December.  I am still getting a lot of feedback that it covers a lot of the things that haven’t changed between vSphere 4 and 5 while at the same time addressing some of the newer features.  The previous one seemed to have more to do with vSphere 4.1.  Again this is just what I hear on random threads and so forth.  I have also updated my resources page and will be working on an offline guide here soon.

So in response to all these opinions I think I have found a solid list to help.  I am also working on a documentation source that could be available offline for others to study as we don’t always have internet access.  These are a bunch of PDF’s from both websites and VMware alike.  If this is a problem I could remove it later.

    a grab a book from our local library but I think
    I learned more clear from this post. I am very glad to see such fantastic information being shared freely out there.


  5. Great article, reliable information. Ever think about providing your
    writing skills to websites? I’m new member of a website which employs freelancers big bucks to create quality content, I guarantee they could use you!
