HASH(0x9f6b80d8) out of 5 stars Could have been proofread more before publishing Oct. 6 2012
By Josh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It's a good book that covers the Blue Print of the VCP5 exam in order however it could have been proof read much better, Chapter 4 (Plan and Configure vSphere Networking) has many errors when talking about vSwitches and DvSwitches, there are numerous times when the two are confused and he's referring to one type while the book is written with the others name. It's quite confusing for someone trying to learn from this book.

Example: Page 195 "Note that in steps 6 and 7 of Exercise 4.18 you are choosing the options to move all virtual machines connected to the virtual machine port group on a vSwitch to a dvSwitch. In steps 13 and 14, you are choosing the options to move all virtual machines connected to the virtual machine port group on a vSwitch to a dvSwitch. In other words, you are reversing steps 6 and 7."

This is just one example where it's confusing all over in this chapter. Definitely should have been proofread more and I can count at least 10 instances in this chapter where he's confused the two in writing. I hope there is a version 2 of this book that fixes these problems.

HASH(0x9f6b8324) out of 5 stars Book is great, the test engine is terrible July 27 2012
By Brent Kenreich - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The content of the book is great. I was worried this book would have a lot of overlap with the Mastering VMware by Scott Lowe. I'm glad I bought both books. Both of these books are much better than the books provided by VMware in their official training classes.

The on-line test is clearly half-updated from vSphere4. For example, the practice test claims RAID 10 is the only supported level for the storage appliance. VMware documentation says the appliance supports RAID 5,6, and 10. The questions were clearly not proofread by a native English speaker.

HASH(0x9f6b82e8) out of 5 stars Good Tool for Exam Prep June 18 2012
By Dennis Gee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have been using VSphere 5 Enterprise Plus for several months so I've had significant experience with it. I discovered that this book had been released a week before my scheduled exam. I sat down in my apartment and read the entire book and did all of the review questions over about 15 hours. When I took other practice exams I found that the book had got me about 90% of the way to passing. I used the excellent exam cram outline from Vidad Cosonok's blog and it filled in the gaps that I needed to pass the exam. I gave the book 4 stars instead of 5 for the gaps and the fact that the book format expected me to do long involved "labs" that seem to add little value. I recommend it for exam prep.

HASH(0x9f6b85dc) out of 5 stars Good VCP5 Certification Study Guide Aug. 30 2012
By Christian Mohn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a great resource for anyone looking to pass the VCP510 exam. The book is divided into chapters, with review questions at the end of each chapter.

Just like the required VMware training courses (VMware vSphere: Install, Configure, Manage [V5.0]) does not cover all the topics required for the actual exam, just studying this book will not guarantee a pass.

However, unlike the training courses, the book does cover all the areas required, and the step-by-step exercises it contains helps you build the hands-on experience that is required to pass the exam.

Neatly divided into chapters, this book not only helps you study, it also helps you build your own environment from the ground up! The chapters correspond with the objectives laid out by VMware in the Exam Blueprint, and this makes it easy to track your progress and relate it to the actual exam.

Clearly a great resource for anyone looking to obtain the VCP5 certification, especially those just starting out with VMware certifications.

HASH(0x9f6b8ad4) out of 5 stars Excellent VCP5 Exam Resource Aug. 27 2012
By Pfrixion - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I loved this study guide as it is concise and straight to the point. The author does a good job of covering all of the topics that will be covered in the exam. I thought that the flow of the material was logical and well organized. There was a distinct direction that the guide is working towards and that is getting you as ready as possible to get your cert. As with any of these guides, this book is meant for people that have some exposure to vSphere and VMware. Thinking that you can come in blind to any OS or computer framework, read a book and pass an exam is foolishness. This guide, coupled with some studying and some real world experience will get you passed every time.

Well done!
