Last fall, I was fortunate to have the opportunity to be one of technical editors on Eli Khnaser's "Exam Cram: VCP4 VMware Certified Professional VCP-410 Exam." It was my first time as a technical editor, and it was an interesting and learning experience. The book was updated from the first edition that covered VI3, and the technical editing was a good use of both my VCP3 and VCP4 certifications. I recently received a copy of the book, and thought now would be a great time to write about it. The book is available now!
The first thing you notice when opening this book is the Cram Sheet foldout. This foldout contains 109 facts around the exam that follow the layout of the chapters of the book. The book follows the exam blueprint chapter by chapter, and along the way there are lots of sample questions, exam alerts and other items that will help prepare you for the VCP-410. There is also a nice balance between the cram information and the information that Eli includes as tips, notes and cautions. These items apply more to real world scenarios, and would help any VCP be more rounded in the field. This information is a nice touch and a real hidden bonus. There is also a 75 question practice exam, and a very useful reference in the included glossary. If you still need more practice questions, there are 75 more on the included CD. If you are looking to take the VCP-410 exam soon, I would definitely recommend picking up a copy of this book!
As always, thanks for reading!
