VCP-510 passed today

AlexNguyenAlexNguyen Posts: 359Member
I've passed the VCP-510 exam today at a Pearson VUE test center.
It's my first exam at Pearson VUE. I usually take exam at Prometric.
They took a picture of you for their record and you have to sign on a digital pad.

The exam was not easy. There are a lot of questions where you have to choose
two or three answers. You can't pass if you are a newbie and only took a VMware
training class without practice experience.

I took the UCSC online training class from January to the end of March. Then I
read the book "Mastering VMware vSphere 5" by Scott Lowe. I also use
vSphere 5 Study Notes for VCP510 - IT-BOOK.co.uk.

My background:

I took a live training class on VSX 3.5 about 4 years ago but did not challenge
the exam. Since then, I've "played" with ESX 3.5, ESX 4.0, ESX 4.1, ESXi 5.0,
vCenter, FC switch, NAS, SAN in a lab environment at work.

    I've registered to the SANS FOR-408 OnDemand course last month (special price with 15% discount)
    but did not have the time to start it yet. So I'm studying for it right now. While I have access to the full
    version of FTK and EnCase with the FOR-408 course, maybe I'll challenge the ACE or EnCe or CCE certs
    if I have the time.

    I've just received a voucher for a free MS 70-659 exam (virtualization challenge special program). So I'll
    have to do it before the end of May. If I pass, I'll get a 75$ gift certificate. I've already downloaded the
    free "Understanding Microsoft Virtualization Solutions From the Desktop to the Datacenter" ebook to study.

    If my employer is willing to pay, I'll register to the ISO 27001 Lead Implementer course and exam in May.
    I've seen many IT security governance jobs posting in my area requiring ISO 27001.
