The blue print is a guide as to what is covered on the exam - I would use your class documentation along with the documentation VMware provides on http://www.vmware.com/support/pubs/vsphere-esxi-vcenter-server-pubs.html - also get as much hands on exposure that you can -  This last one is less critical if you alread have exposure to vSphere 4

If you find this or any other answer useful please consider awarding points by marking the answer correct or helpful

If you don't have a lot of experience with ESXi already, you definitely will not be ready next week.  The blueprint will tell you what to study and point you at well over 1,000 pages of documentation that you'll need to absorb.  My ICM4 instructor said the class covers less than 60% of the material that's on the exam.  I think he was optimistic and it was a lot less than that.  It's a darn good start though.

Scott Lowe's "Master VMware vSphere 5" book should help but it's over 700 pages.  My copy just showed up today so I've got some reading to do...  I'm already a VCP4 and just starting the build of my home version v5 sandbox environment.  I hope to be ready for the VCP5 exam in a couple of months.
