It doesn't matter whether you use the 5.0 or 5.1 software and documentation - the exam was updated a few months ago to make it applicable to both versions.
Thanks for the responses. They very helpful.
I think I have to stick to the exam Blueprint for the study and hands-on.
Another question although I have said above, NetFlow and Port Mirror should NOT be in the exam, correct?
They are part of the configuration of a distributed switch, and that is tested on in terms of port groups and uplinks, but I can't recall if those features are specifically called out in the blueprint.
Be careful, the course materials are not a perfect match to the exam blueprint objectives - if you attended Install Configure Manage you won't have covered the distributed switch at all, but it is one of the exam blueprint objectives.
The books of Brian Atkinson and Scott lowe, along with the blue print will get you 70% there. Read a lot about trouble shooting storage, VM's, vSwitches, and vDS from from other sources. The exam is hardly theory, but mostly practical.
The sentence structure of the questions seem as though were written by a foreigner, so you've got to know your stuff, becasue if you spend too much time decifiering what they're asking then you're out of time. Remember: 90 minutes to answer 85 questions.
As the exam items are independent of the minor version, you only need knowledge of the maximums (as well as other features and functions) that are applicable to both 5.0 and 5.1.
You won't get any "what's the maximum number of...." questions though, but a good understanding of some maximums (and defaults) can help.
