VCP 5

UPDATED: VCP5 Study Guide and Resources
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)

  2. Hi,

    your blog is very interesting. But, when I try to download the vSphere5 ressources on the link: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/15701544/vSphere%205%20Complete%20Documentation%20-%20Public.rar, it gives me ‘Error 404’.

    Would you please share with me these resources?

    Thanks a lot.
