Passed VCP-510 today

That was a hard test. Granted, I have only spent about 1 month studying, and I've only done a few vSphere 5 deployments, but I believe this was much harder than VCP 410.

Sources used - Mastering vSphere 5 by Scott Lowe, official VMWare white papers, and around a half dozen production vSphere 5 deployments.

Tips - be familiar with ins and out of storage types and the nuances of FC vs iSCSI vs NFS. Play around with vCenter linux appliance - I never got a chance to lab that, and there were a few questions about it.

    Congrats, well done :)
    Thanks for the tips. I really need to push on with this, though I've just done the "Whats New" course for v5 so the pressure of having to take it before the end of this month is off.
