Any suggestions would be much appreciated

    I just passed it last Saturday. I too had a hard time finding practice exams and eventually gave up. In the end, knowing ASDM menus and AnyConnect diagnostic output, basic components of the different VPN types, aspects of the IKE/IPSec negotiation process, and the features available with the different VPN types was enough to get through the test.

    Wish I could point you in the right direction, but if it's any consolation it's not really a difficult exam unless you have zero experience with VPN setup and troubleshooting.

    I did the CBT Nuggets 24hour exam cram a couple of days before my test which - I thought - included Transcender practice tests for VPN v2. I didn't end up using any practice exams. I think CBT nuggets also killed off the 24 hour exam cram in favor of the $99 / month subscriptions.

    I found it was easier than Firewall but I did a ton of supplemental reading to make sure my bases were covered. Of course, lab till your eyes bleed: Site-site using pre-share, certificate based S-S, remote access, easyvpn, understand the log entries and troubleshooting techniques, blah blah blah....

    I found it really useful to lab both ways; GUI first, then CLI. The exam seems heavily weighted towards ASDM but if you understand the CLI commands and syntax, the ASDM becomes much less of an abstract 'wizard.'

    The ones I remember:

    Cisco ASA 5500 Series Config Guide using the CLI 8.4 and 8.6

    Cisco ASA 5500 Series Configuration Guide using ASDM, 6.4. and 6.6

    Cisco Secure Desktop Config Guides

    Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client Admin Guide (3.0 is on the exam)

    IKEV2 RFC 5996

    CCNP Security VPN 642-648 Quick Reference

    Good luck, I don't think you'll have any problems.

    cheers Dover and Zeroth. Looks like I will have to attempt without any exam practice then. I do like to do a few practice before hand but looks like I have no choice. Im on the VPN course right now and the instructor is unaware of where you can get practice exams either. He said the books on the course have all the answers and pay partcular attention to the "notes" sections. The exam is on Wednesday so hopefully all the information is fresh in my head from the course. I also have the CBT nuggets vids and a 5505 at home so hopefully this will be enough.
