Stanley CC Class March - May 2014

Hi All;

I got my email that my name has come up on the wait list for the March - May 2014 VMware Vsphere class. I had to fill out a google doc from by Friday. I will get an email within 1 - 2 weeks to go online and submit payment for the course. I recall when I put my name on the wait list last year; there were approximately 500 people ahead of me.

    Sept or October 2013. I think I was around 500 on the wait list at the time.

    Damn, I signed up around the October time frame as well. Where do you check to see where you are on the waiting list?
  • praminpramin Member Posts: 138 ■■■□□□□□□□
    @zxbane;

    Call up Stanly and speak to Jana Kennedy. She should be able to tell you where you are on the list.
  • zxbanezxbane Member Posts: 740 ■■■■□□□□□□
    Just called and sent her a email, Hopefully I hear back soon. I know we have a couple other VCP/Stanly threads on here. How many people have been successful on the VCP exam with the Stanly course plus the Scott Lowe book? VMware interests me more so than many other fields, including security.

    I got the email also. Sent in the form and looking forward to it. It has been roughly 4 months or so since I got on the wait list.

    I got my email Feb 26th! Very excited! :D
  • zxbanezxbane Member Posts: 740 ■■■■□□□□□□
    Good luck to those that made the cut, I hope to be in the next round! Hopefully you guys can give some feedback on the course here so what others going after you know what to expect

    Got my payment instructions email today. Based on the info from other folks on this site, I figured I get the email today. I do have a question or two to ask: in other threads, it has been indicated that you don't need the book they suggest. I have the official VCP5 Cert Guide by Bill Ferguson and the Mastering VMware V-Sphere 5.5 book by Scott Lowe. Do I even need to bother with ordering the book from Stanly CC? Thoughts on the book by those who've purchased it?

    I realize that this course is more of a formality, a check-the-box sort of thing and that many could probably pass the exam with just self-study. I just want to get the most out of the course and the books as I can. I truly despise talking to folks who only know just enough to pass an exam but don't understand the technology. I want to truly master the information, to the greatest extent possible given my relative lack of experience with V-Sphere, so as to avoid being a paper tiger-type.

    Cheers

    I submitted payment today for the course. I have the Scott Lowe book and from what I have read on here, that's all you need. I don't plan to buy the course book.

    I am based overseas so this is the approach i am taking.

    Is the class still based on 5.1?

    I am not exactly sure. I think it is general 5.x based, but I dont know if they cover changes in 5.5. I have the 5.5 book because I believe that is what will be needed for the exam.

    Yes the current class is 5.1

    This VmWare link shows there are currently two different exams that you could take to pass the VCP5-DCV. One is for 5.0/5.1 and the other is for 5.5.
    I guess we just hope that exam is still available by the time the class is over :D

    You are able to take whichever exam at the end of the course that you please. I just finished the course am taking the 5.5 exam. I did all my reading and other study in 5.5. The course covers 5.x, It isn't really an issue if you take 5.x or 5.5 for the exam as you will receive a VCP5-DCV at the end.

    I signed up at the beginning of November last year and haven't received anything other than the initial confirmation email. Is there any way to confirm I'm still on the wait list? I just registered a 2nd time with a different email just in case.

    If you will send me a private message with your full name, I will be glad to check for you.

    Trying to log in this morning with the information they provided, no luck yet. Anyone else get in?

    I have just logged in and read the course syllabus, completed the Class overview quiz and introduced myself. I believe these three need to be completed before a certain date. The page states they need to be completed by 17 Jan so i am guessing its a typo :D. I also entered my details in the VMware registration page to ensure my prerequisite details are passed to VMware on completion.

    Login to moodle and select the course from the sidebar. Then there is a link on the main page which says "VMware registration"

    I'm an 'alumnus' of this course, although I'm not ready to take the exam yet. There was a link to an external blog as one of the first items in the course as I recall. I wonder if anybody would be so kind as to copy the link here or PM me with it?

    Thanks.
