I'm surprised noone else has provided a review on this book which is both a great and concised guide, focused on the VCP5 exam "Key topics" aka Objectives.

I was attracted to this book when I downloaded Chapter 1 from Internet (freely available). It's easy to read and shows a lot of screen shots with many step-by-step procedures. I do not regret my purchase as the rest of the book is presented in the same way.

The author has done a great job in clarity and I would recommend this Certification Guide to anyone who is serious about passing the VCP5. It's well worth the money.

A good book to dive into VMs and associated 'networking and infrastructure'. Be prepared to read a whole lot more on the VMWare site for tips. An OK prep to challenge the exam. Clear and concise chapters on all topics. 'Do I know this' is a good starting point for each chapter.

This cert guide is well written and will provide a good base for the topics that are covered in the VCP5.1 examination, however it alone will not enable you to pass if you do not have hands on experience with ESXi and vSphere.

If I didn't have 4+ years experience administering an ESX cluster, I would have surely failed the VCP5 exam if this was my only source of study material. The benefit to this book is its ability to providing a quick reference for configuration maximums and a brief technical outlook to the topics that are on the exam but lacks the technical verbosity and "real-world" scenarios that help administrators tackle virtualization.

I read this e-book back to front 3 times in prep for my VCP-5 exam - well written but not all the relevant to the 510 exam.
