You can't formally buy them separate from a training event. I would definitely say that the exam is not based around the training manual though, VMware publish the VCP exam blueprint, and they make all the vSphere documentation available via their website.

This is the official VCP5 page: http://www.vmware.com/go/VCP

There's a VCP5 tab on my blog which will give you some great information and links: http://vmwaretraining.blogspot.com

wich books do you recommend to me to begin in the vmware world.

because I started studying vSphere 4 with video tutorials.

Videos:
ctb nuggets
train signal

books:
Vsphere by SIBEX


but these are of vSphere 4

I want to start with nothing left.

and now I'm studying full "Mastering VMware vSphere 5"

I want to be fully prepared to pay for the training and take the test.

VMware Press has a book on VCP 5 but I don't know how good it is.

Mastering VMware vSphere 5 by Scott Lowe.  The best by far.

Take the Install, Configure, Manage course, study the book with the help of a lab, and then write the exam.
