    I'm also taking my exam on the 17th. I've been using Measure-Up and the practice test on the My.Learn Vmware page quite often. My nerves are starting to get tighter as the test date approaches.

    @Itrimble, I suggest you go through the 'your daily VMware quiz' thread too, if you havent already. Some decent questions there. Good luck!

    I recommend grabbing a lasso and practice wrangling a greased pig; that's how i felt taking this test, one of the hardest of the ones I have <- .

    Maybe I just under studied (heck, I still passed) but some of those questions blew me away.

    Your study plan is good/better than mine though.

    man... I know what you mean, I'm finding myself going over the blueprints like 2 times a day now... for the past month it was like once a week....

    my electric bill this month will be insane have both of there R610's on for 10+ hours a day on weekends and atleast 5 hours a night during the week...

    I think what makes me the most nervous if not knowing what to expect...

    well I've been doing a number of practice exams tonight and reviewing flash cards, hopefully VMware doesn't throw me a curveball and make me go crazy with the complexity of them....

    Found a nice practice exam app on the Android market over @ http://www.certification2go.com/ that I've been trolling all day, hopefully it's legit....

    anyways I've done as much studying as I can I guess....

    Was thinking of going threw the questions I do know nearly instantly and flagging others to come back to them, good idea?

    any last minute advice?

    Just remember, be yourself... oh for the VCP, yes definitely watch your time limit! One area that got me that I did not think to study was permissions.

    permission are relatively good for me, they behave like GPO's with propagation, cloning permission though that is new.... hopefully I get the permission ones right..

    Yes time does seem like an enemy, however these practice exams I'm taking are 100 questions and it takes me 1 hour to do them.

    Tonight I'm just going to hash out storage and DRS. And then just do flash cards but more importantly I'm off to bed at 9pm. I've found 8+ hours before an exam plus a good breakfast is essential plus a vitamin water with potassium, sodium, the B ' s and folic acid with BCAA'S I find help me focus...dunno know why...

    Must be from the high blood pressure once the exam starts...lol

    Good luck DeathImage! Let us know how the exam went and what you think were the tools that proved to be most useful (aside from the Scott Lowe book) and the ones that weren't. I plan on taking the exam early next month.

    Good luck man. You got this.

    I took my Cisco ICND2 yesterday and did studying sessions like you described and I passed with no problem. I am starting VCP-DCV next month at Stanly and will be doing the same.

    Aww man that sucks big time. Do they tell you how you scored in each area? I know you'll get it next time though.

    Sorry to hear that bud. My test is tomorrow at 9:00 am. I found a few more links to look at :

    Do I Know This Already? VMware VCP5 - Datacenter Virtualization Exam | Pearson IT Certification

    And you should still have another 70% of voucher that you can use from the Stanly course, so that should take out the sting.

    Sorry to hear, I know the pain though (hit the CEH on try #3). You'll get it the next time! Do they give you a printout on what your weak areas were?

    Sure did. I'm just going to use the MeasureUP tests (found those very helpful, thx mystery man!)

    I really had no idea going into it how the exam was going to be structured so I kind of knew it was a dry run. I know and felt I got a good chunk of them right but a few things like powercli I did next to nothing with or DRS so I'm going to see about powercli (if anyone knows how I do those that would be easier or else I'll go through Scott book and find it) but DRS seems a little more tricky..

    I'm really not upset upset I was prepared to fail. I just wasn't as hard as I thought it was going to be..

    It's all good my 1st A+ I failed by 15 points and then I retool it and got a near perfect score.

    What this just proves to me is I know the content just need to refine it for case scenario's...and ironically I think practise tests are the only realistic way...

    I failed the first time too. I was also able to use the same stanly voucher booking the second time, just fyi. Good luck on the retake, you got this.

    Sorry to hear that. I hope you pass on the next try. Is it safe to say that the Stanly course and reading the Scott Lowe book front to back are not enough to prepare for the test?

    I'd like to get thoughts on this too.
