Studying for your VCP 5? Read This

There are many books and guides to read either physical books, website, kindle book, pdfs, etc, so where to start?

There are several resources that present summaries but these are my favorite resources:

This book is a must to have/read, it will not only help you with your certification but will be also a Reference Guide for your day to day work with vSphere, the author is Scott Lowe (, one of the best authors of virtualization books, highly recommended:

Mastering VMware vSphere 5 [Kindle Edition] – Amazon

Also, Brian Atkinson study guide is really good:

VCP5 VMware Certified Professional on vSphere 5 Study Guide: Exam VCP-510 [Kindle Edition] – Amazon

Ok, now you read all the material, you feel good about going to do the exam but, is this your first certification exam? is your first VCP exam? It will be good if you can practice before the exam so I will recommend TestKing ( VCP-510 Questions & Answers, with that practice test you will get an idea of how the exam looks and you can validate your knowledge to see if you are really prepare for the exam.

Well know is up to you, you got the tips, so, good luck on the exam!!!
