Wanted to take a second and do a short post as a reminder that there are only 2 days left to upgrade from VCP4 to VCP5 without having to take the What’s New Course from VMware. Yes, I am one of the many procrastinators of the world that have yet to take the exam, but as of last night, I am officially scheduled to take the exam on Wednesday 2/29 at 11:45 am in Phoenix, AZ! Man, I better pass now that you know I’m scheduled to take the test, yikes! For anyone that has missed a couple of good posts on VCP5 or have yet to prepare, it might be a bit late, but here are some of the best VCP5 links I could find:

    Petri IT Knowledgebase – How To Pass The VCP Exam With Ease

    The Saffa Geek – VCP5 Page

    Damian Karlson – VMware VCP Resources

    vReference – vSphere 5 Notes

Ok, you only have the rest of today and all of tomorrow to do what you can to prepare and then it’s go time. If for some reason you don’t make the deadline or don’t pass the exam by the deadline, don’t beat yourself up. Pick yourself back up, take the What’s New Course from VMware, study harder and pass the second go round. Good luck!

  1. I did the exam today…and passed 🙂
    It was a bit harder then the VCP410 and I had much fewer time to study.

      1. You as an expert won’t need luck, so I wish you success.
        If I could make it with about 3 weeks of preperation, then you’ll pass for sure. 🙂
