I finally got round to taking the VCP4 yesterday, and I passed!!! All the hard work revising paid off!!
I'm going to start studying for the VCP5 now, and if I am able to, take the exam before the cut off date in Feb next year to avoid going on more courses! Any good study resources/tips from anyone who has completed the VCP5 would be greatly appreciated!!
Welcome to the Community - Congratulations - to prepare for the VCP5 is pretty much the same things as the VCP4 - use the VCP5 blueprint as your guide - fill in the details with the documentation and get hands on experience -
Although not a dedicated training book, I'd suggest you take a look at Scott Lowe's "Mastering VMware vSphere 5". It covers most of the topics and is a really great resource.
There are plenty of posts on my blog about the VCP5 exam, with pointers to some excellent preparations and study resources: http://vmwaretraining.blogspot.com
