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. (Click here to get what I have for now)

vSphere 5 Documentation Download and More

So I decided to waste some time the other day for while I was prepping for my VCP 5. I went ahead and compiled some PDF’s and some pretty awersome Blogs (Converted to PDF) so that way I could have an offline resource to study. I know me as a blogger I could really care less about someone using my blog to help them study and I am sure anyone in the community would really have a problem, after all that is what community is all about. 🙂

HOWEVER! If anyone would like NOT to have their blog in this awesome resource download then please let me know and I will quickly remove it.

ON A SEPERATE NOTE! If anyone would LIKE TOO have their blog noted here and would like to have a particular area to be placed in let me know as well.

Just note, that this is mostly related to getting the documentation quickly and efficiently when you need it. I use it in my drop box of course and have it sync with several systems. This makes it even more handy.

This is currently what I have: (Note: You can go to the VMware site and download the admin guides all in one zip file however, you want be able to download them in this way. I have made a zip folder for each category as specific as I can)
API and SDK Programming
CLI (vCLI and PowerCLI Includes Posters)
Other vSphere Documentation
Site Recovery Manager 5 (SRM)
VMware Storage Appliance (VSA)
VMware Update Manager (VUM)
vCenter Orchestrator (vCO)
VMware Data Recovery 2 (VDR)
VMware vCloud Director (VCD)
vSphere 5 What’s New Documentation
vSphere 5 Best Practices Documentation
vSphere 5 Networking
vSphere 5 Storage
vSphere and ESXi 5 – Admin Guides
vSphere HA-DRS Clustering Info
vSphere Management Adminstrator -vMA
Other Documentation

You can get the entire download HERE!
