    @tah84ag I was wondering the same thing. It'd be great if I could use the same key for labbing at home.

    I think you can use this book for the labs and overall studying. Their recommended book could be good but i for the price you can't go wrong with Scott's Book

    Not sure if you're in my class, but mine is located in the class on the top left (link says "Access VMware Store").

    Edit: This is in response to the VMware licenses question.

    I really like this course so far. Just finished Module 5.

    The lectures are ok but the instructor sounds really bored sometimes. Could be a bit more enthusiastic.

    Yes Mandera

    I hate the same trouble as well . The lecturer sounds a bit bored .

    Nevertheless this whole course along with the exam voucher is good value for money .

    Hi everyone, I'm following this class too. I've encountered an issue. (I think is the same issue of this thread Spring 2014 VMware courses at Stanly Community College in the spring class). At the end of lesson 2 of module 3, there is a slide about lab 3 and the creation and preparation of a virtual machine, but the pdf of lab 3 in the Netlab+ enviroment, is about configuring the vcenter server appliance, it seems more like the argument of module 4 rather than module 3. There is a "domino effect" to the other lab: the lab 4 is about virtual switch not vCenter server architecture like in the module 4, the lab 5 is about iscsi storage not vnetwork standard switches and so on. Have you encountered the same issue, is it fixable? Did you create the virtual machine, anyway? In the pdf they added a note about "slight" differences between labs and lessons, is this lab3's issue the case?
    Thanks

    Does he reads every piece of text on the slide in a monotone voice? If so we must have the same instructor. I've gotten so bored of the videos I'm just reading the class lecture manual; it has all the slides in from the videos and has information that the instructor skips in the video.

    P.S.

    If you listen closely on the "Configuring iSCSI Storage" video, you can hear either an animal or a kid playing with a toy that makes squeaking sounds. lol....

    I'm experiencing the same issue. The way im approaching this course now is watching all the videos, then re-watching them and taking notes. Finally i'll start with the labs. I also printed out guides to various products (ex..Vcenter) from VMware and watch other videos on YouTube/CBTs for more details.

    I know what you're saying and I think they didn't structure the labs very well in regards to the lesson plans. Definitely do the labs in order or you'll have problems later on. Also, read the lecture manual while you're doing the labs. As I stated in my previous post, the videos are ok, but the presenter isn't very good and the slides for them are in the book.

    Here's something nifty, if you complete the labs ahead of time, the instructor will reset the labs and you can re-do them. Once the next block of labs is released, I'll get them done in no time and the instructor said he could reset them for more practice ... just food for thought...

    Thanks for the info! Also, make sure you download all the PDFs so you can repeat the labs in the future on your own virtual lab.

    The instructor was kind enough to send me a zip of all of the PDF's.

    So do we have to wait until October before we can take the test ?

    I'm currently on Lab 12. I plan to finish in a couple of days. Did you only lab, or did you watch each lecture that accompanied the labs?

    I am schedule to take the class next year.
    Regarding the labs, how easy is it to reproduce them in a home lab? I am planning on having my lab ready to do the labs online and then to them again at home for repetition. How many servers are needed?

    I personally watched each video, then did the module labs and then I reverse engineered the labs in my home-based dual Dell R610 cluster for added practice.

    I'm in thep rocess right now of re-doing the labs, Mr. Crump just reset all of my labs so I guess that means I passed.

    What test do you speak of, you can take the the VCP5-DCV test as soon as the class is over in theory but me personally I'm reading Scott Lowe's book right now and I've breeze-read 8 chapters since the class already taught me the core basics.

    To each here own I suppose...

    Finished the last lectures this morning. Gonna complete the labs this week. Then I will start preparing to take the test. I already started reading Mastering vSphere 5.5 from S. Lowe.

    I'm still a bit disappointed about the instructor, who did not answer my problem on the forums about the VMware Store. And I still think he was really bored/sleepy or something like that during recording.

    You have to wait until after the class ends and VMware is informed that you completed the class. Once you're authorized to take the exam, you can schedule it. I finished the labs a while ago and have been studying since then for the exam. I'm feeling a bit like Bender right now: Let's go Already! - YouTube

    Class is finished today but there are some problems with the Netlab environment. I don't see a grade in my profile right now, does anyone else already received a grade?

    I have 4 hours to finish my labs before deadline however Netlabs is down. I hope they offer an extension for it. I'd hate to take the class again.
