    Finally after 8 months hard work and one failure I passed. Still don't know how I got 420 as I thought I passed but not that well. Think I might of slipped in a few lucky answers :biggrin

    Congrats mate, another beast slain :)

    What resources did you use to get you through? How long have you worked on VMware products? I need to do the VCP5 at some point.
    Cheers
    Jim

    Jim, I bought 3 servers and set one up with Openfiler SAN to test all the bells and whistles with VSphere. It took me roughly 8 months to do and I used official documents, Mastering VCP 4-5 books and HA/DRS Deep Dive as well as the VMware forums and other websites. I failed the first time with 290 but ran out of time and had around 12 questions that I didn't answer so was a little cheesed off with myself. I personally didn't like the exam as I felt some questions weren't clear enough or worded in such a way that I struggled to pick the correct answer. I was convinced with at least 3 questions that 3 answers were correct when it asked for 2. I've used VMware products as well for around 1 year but in no great depth and still struggle with certain areas mainly on the networking parts of ESXi.

    Cheers all for the replies. Really happy to get this one off my back. Haven't felt so nervous doing an exam since 70-291 (That exam still makes me shiver lol).
