    Did yours have any content when you clicked course overview? Mine only has an attempt quiz now button, no content to read before taking a quiz?

    Yep, it just confirms that you understand what is required of you for the course, which is explained in the question itself.

    It's more of a consent form, rather than a quiz. Same thing with the VMWare registration one.

    I'm in the class too. I've been lurking here for a long time but finally registered for the forums a few months back.

    Wish more modules would open up for the weekend. So far it shows only 1-3 on the page and the only 'quiz' is module 2. I want to fly through this... too anxious!

    How does one track their Netlabs progress? I'm done with Lab 6 so far. I can't find anything on Netlab to see if I completed the exercises.

    I also just completed lab 6... they seem to be available so I don't know why they wouldn't count.

    You guys can relax about the labs. There is no big "CONGRATULATIONS" banner after completing one, or even all of them. If you're done, you're done. The instructors have ways of logging and and checking the progress; no need to bother them about it.

    I had some issues a few hours ago. Waited an hour or so, then relaunched and it was ok. I also moved from Chrome to Firefox. It runs a little smoother. It's working for me now.

    Guess I'll try firefox. In Chrome I ran out of time (1 hour 15 minutes) because the damn thing wouldn't save/load when doing the vCenter Appliance lab....

    If you get timeout errors, it's not an issue with the browser, but with performance of the lab due to having other people in the middle of their lab.

    So, regarding the labs: The "Show Lab Content" button in NETLAB is supposed to be the lab addendum. With Lab 1, the addendum covers the steps for Task 2 (Install the vSphere Client), but says nothing about Task 3 (Install the Web Client [Server]). Are we still doing Task 3 (from the lab manual) or no? I guess what I'm saying is that it seems like the lab addendum is taking the place of the lab manual ("the labs should be performed in order of the lab addenda"), which is fine, but I'm trying to clarify if that is the case.

    I took this last term and I did not use the lab manual at all. I printed out the online instructions and followed them.

    Thanks for the clarification. I figured as much; when I tried to do certain tasks that weren't spelled-out in the addendum, they typically wouldn't work (probably due to the nature of doing this online as opposed to in a classroom).

    Don't put too much emphasis on the labs. Use them to your advantage to gain experience. They are often broken and don't start up occasionally (you need to keep trying and eventually they start). The exercises are fairly easy, but you may run into problems getting them to work. The instructor knows this, so don't worry if you can't complete everything. It's more important to be familiar with how things are done in real world scenarios then the labs.

    For the Stanly class? No. Everything is contained within the lab environment. You use the client workstation (in the lab) to connect to the servers/vCenter through the vSphere client. You don't need to install anything other than maybe Java to get the lab connections working.

    I was kind of hoping for a presentation that was more than just a reading of the slides with a little anecdotal information thrown in, but considering what the course cost I don't think I'll complain about it. So long as it and a passing score on the exam get me my VCP5-DCV cert then I couldn't care less.

    Honestly, even with the 5 day course, it can be a hit or a miss. I had a buddy take the 5 day course and he pretty much told me that the instructor only read from the book and would not answer all questions.

    This class will NOT fully prepare you for the VCP exam. You'll want to do some additional labbing and studying (exam blueprint, Mastering vSphere 5 book, etc.)

    Great resource. They also offer Citrix and EMC2 courses as part of a cloud computing set. That is awesome. Frankly, less than $500 a course doesn't seem too hard to handle, with a little planning!

    Cheers
