VCP5 Certification Completed

Past week I took the VCP510 exam and passed. Upgrading my VCP4 certification to VCP5.

If you are willing to become a VCP (VMwareCertified Professional), be aware that it’s not just taking the exam, depending on your current status, you would need to take a class as well.

I’d like to give you a few tips, without breaking the NDA.

First, and more important, get hand’s on experience. With a good experience, you can go through the question with no big issues. If you don’t have a LAB or an environment where you can practice and play with vSphere, create your own lab with VMware Workstation or VMware Fusion, it will be smaller, slower, but you will get what you need.

Second, as my last exam I did not had a single question about maximum configuration. I see people tending to worries a lot about it and expanding hours trying to memorize it, well in my own experience I don’t think it worths.

Lastly, there are a few practice tests out there, you can use to test your knowledge. They are not real exam question, but if you find a question that you don’t have a clue what’s it about, that’s an indicator of a subject you need to learn more.
Here’s a few ones.

have a good luck
