    I emailed Nick on the 3rd of April but didn't receive any response.
    At the time I was also trying to enroll to the CC and was having all sorts of issues as I don't have a SSN etc (non US citizen).
    Going through all that process I was given the email of the faculty director who was keeping the waiting list and she took all my details.
    Thought I missed out but someone from admissions emailed just a few days ago and I was able to enroll this semester.

    Received the bookset yesterday. Package consists of 3 spiral-bound books. Two books comprise the study material; total page count is over 600 pages. Almost every page has an illustration or screen snapshot, as well as accompanying text. The third book has 27 test lab exercises, I recall.

    10 days and counting .....

    Luckily I ordered the text books a few weeks ago and I have them already.

    Given it's 204, and the originals were 200, 201, one would assume I am on the 5th class this semester.
    There was talk about organising another 2-3 classes, and when I registered I guessed I got the second or last spot on the fifth class.
    Have you received login info or anything yet? I didn't receive which class I was actually in, although I didn't ask. I just was notified I'm officially registered for May 20th after I paid for registration.

    Cyril, Why not look at the colleges in your local area that offer the course and get the books from the.
    You are looking for the following code.

    VAP-ENG-VSICM5-SK

    I believe the books are only available via VMware through a VMware education partner, but all universities/colleges doing the course will have access to the books.

    Here are the list of colleges that are supposed to be giving the course.

    How long did it take from ordering to actually receiving the book?

    That's an understatement, Cyril. The bookset costs USD $42.35, to which was added $16.70 for shipping to California. However, I didn't see it as a negative. With the cost of the class much less expensve than elsewhere, does it really matter what the books cost? Besides, the price of books at any college or community college is unbelievable these days. Best to rent them if you can. Otherwise buy a $100-$200 book and sell it back to the book store when the class is over.

    What remains unanswered is whether the book set is mandatory. The contents appear to be PowerPoint slides with accompanying notes. Perhaps the same study material available online.

    The books were mailed on 5/2 and arrived on 5/9 (California).

    Yeah my books cost $60 to Wisconsin, and then I had to have them sent over to Australia. (probably added $20 to the shipping cost for me)
    End of the day I know I have the right books for the course and wont have any issues completing them.
    Either way I would be getting it done soon as you only have 10 days till the course starts.

    Yes I have my login to webadvisor. I sort of requested it as I was struggling to find a fax machine round here that would let me send internationally, so the person I was dealing with sent me my login and I was able to pay online.
    As long as you have registered you will receive your login to the course.
    There is nothing to do in there until they release the course on the 20th. (some state law that they have to wait)

    I looked at the MVS book and the Official VCP5 book. Actually both are on my safari bookshelf. I think for certification purposes, the Official VCP5 book is tops because it follows the blueprint. There isnt really any fluff and it reads pretty mechanical (this is what we want to do, this is how we do it). In terms of actual real world stuff, the MVS book is excellent. I especially like the networking section (giving tips on configuring the neigboring Cisco devices).

    So I am using VCP5 for official study but if I had to purchase a hardcopy, i'd get the MVS.

    I've also enrolled in the 5/20 course. According to Jana Kennedy (Eagle’s One Stop Mentor) we should receive the login information about a week prior to the start of the class...

    My book hasn't shipped yet. Ordered it last Wednesday. Hoping it ships today to have even a chance of getting here by the 20th.

    Edit: Just contacted book store. Didn't realize they had quite a few on back order and a decent amount of others registered for May 20th are also waiting. They said to contact the instructor if we hadn't received the book by the start date and they will work with us regarding this.

    It's impossible to find, it seems to be able to order it from Gilmore directly, but I need a vmware registration number ...
    I don't know if Stanly can give it to us ?

    VAP-ENG-VSICM5-SK is for vsphere 5.0, I don't know id the class has been upgrade to 5.1 ?

    VAP-ENG-VSICM5-SG-EThat's the only one I can find in Canada. No idea if that's the same book as VAP-ENG-VSICM5-SK or not.

    That isn't the book I purchased from the college bookstore via their web site, @FireFire. The class dsscription points you to this set of 3 green books http://www.bkstr.com/webapp/wcs/stor...ourse-1=300039

    By the way ... check your email, guys. This morning I received a letter from the college telling me how to login to the class website (called Moodle ... cute!). The letter says I'm in Nick Huneycutt's class.

    I received login information but can't actually log in. The email states to log in on the first day of the course though on the 20th. Hoping this is the same for everyone else.

    just fyi guys i'm trying hardcore to get this out of the way as I have quite a few certs to study for.

    According to this guy we can take the VCP without taking the class however we will not be awarded VCP5 until we finish the class. I already have another voucher so I am planning on knocking this out ASAP using just the official guide. I mention this for those just want to jump in ASAP. Don't take the test without a voucher though!

    I already have around 3+ years of ESX experience + a decent lab so it should be interesting.

    Edit: Also I just received my login.

    I've also received the login info but can't login yet, although my problem seems different:

    "Your Moodle account does not exist or is missing critical information. Please contact the Stanly Community College help desk for assistance. "

    Same message I'm receiving. I'm guessing that will resolve on Monday then.

    Thanks dude. I contact GILMORE this morning and get the ebook. They told me VAP-ENG-VSICM5-SG is the e-version and SK is the print version. I am going to give it a try.

    BTW, I am in Jeff's class. Got my login email this afternoon and got the same error message when I try to login.

    Any one interested by creating a Linkedin Group and join up together?
