    Post Summer (May 20) 2013 Stanly CC vSphere 5 ICM Class Thread

    Thought since this is such a popular class referenced in this forum, I'd start a new thread for the Summer session.

    19 days and counting until the class begins ....

    The course textbook is mentioned often enough in the Spring 2013 thread. I have yet to read something positive about the textbook. My copy ought to arrive later this week, so it may be a while before I can form my own opinion.

    I learned long ago to use several sources when studying for a certification exam. And as always, I like to use my library's subscription to eSafari books to browse through technical books, trying to find out the author's writing style, the depth of the material covered, and how each book stacks up compared to others. Then I go about ordering two (or more) that made the best impression. If you live in the USA, many county libraries, community colleges to university library have Safari eBook subscriptions. Get a library card and use your PC or mobile device to read their books for free. If your library does not have a subscription, get a trial subscription for about US$ 20. per month. By the way, Safari has about a dozen vSPhere related books when I looked.

    I bought the Sybex book Mastering VMware vSphere 5, largely because it had good reviews, it had step-by-step exercises, the book seemed well organized, and the author had a writing style that didn't put me to sleep or confuse me. Got it through O'Reily books online at a 50% discount. I downloaded pdf, and mobi file formats of the book so that I could read it on my PC and Android tablet.

    I have mixed throught about buying the VMware press book written by Bill Fegurson. The main put-off was the way in which the book is tightly coupled to VMware's exam blueprint. He tells you early in the initial paragraphs that the order of topics is based on VMware's exam blueprint. As I read quickly though the first chapter, I found myself re-reading (and re-reading sections yet again) because of the way components in the vSphere product line were ordered. For instance, vCenter was covered before even getting to ESXi. The coverage seemed good in each area -- that's why I may yet buy the book for additional technical insight. And if I don't buy it, perhaps I'll read sections using Safari.

    If anyone has found yet other good learning material, I'll give you a banana in exchange for your input.

    I don't find it funny at all. Quite disappointing.

    The Fall term class begins in August. Get on the waiting list, or talk to the registrar about important dates from which to apply. This is an extremely popular class.

    Hi All.

    I registered for this class after the spring session filled up and only remembered it after cleaning out my inbox!

    Guess I had better get started on prep. Besides the one Class/Payment Acknowledgement, has anyone gotten any other emails or info about the class? I'll read through the other thread to see where I can get the book.

    I am registered but have not got any additional information yet. From my memory of the other thread they only got emails pretty close to the date of the class.

    I just registered today for May 20th. Not sure if someone dropped out to get the spot as I was on the waiting list or what. The individual I've been in contact with said the professor will be emailing us next week sometime to give logins. Hopefully that turns out to be true.

    Yeah I got a phone call yesterday from Stanly asking for my home e-mail address for their records. I have their email address they provided forwarded to my home one. I haven't gotten any responses for the May 20th class either...so I'm waiting too.

    Thanks for the good wishes. When did you e-mail nick initially to be added to the wait list?

    Yes, I had emailed nhunnycutt around a month ago to get added to the waiting list. I was under the impression at the time that the waiting list was for fall quarter though, as I thought Summer was completely full. Once I received the email to register, they only gave me 2 days to actually register or they were going to give up my spot.

    That sounds good. I e-mailed nick on the 2nd, so although slim, there is still hope!

    I registered via their website. Only had a few spots left when I registered. Best bargain around! Too bad more schools don't have this deal!

    I was told on earlier posts that the book for this class is really not needed...can anyone else confirm that? Any other books that are recommended for the exam?

    I made it into the Summer class. Jeffery Drake's class CAS-300039-204
    Got an email the other day as I was on the waiting list.
    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.
