Passed CCA:XenDesktop 5

My new position (9 months now) has been very Citrix heavy, with one of my primary responsibilities being administration of our VDI environment. Although we'll be looking at XenDesktop 7 soon, I wanted to pick up the v5 cert to show some history on my resume.

The exam was fair, but like all Citrix exams, there's not much out there to study. I used:

- Trainsignal videos
- Citrix eDocs and forums (I use these daily anyway)
- Citrix XenDesktop 5 Cookbook
- Over 1 year daily administration

I passed by a large margin (94%), so I probably could have walked in cold and come close at least. I'm going to do a little prep the next week or so and take the XenServer 6 exam as well.

Any other Citrix heavy admins around here? I know this forum doesn't see a lot of action.
