    Just thought I'd post my total surprise at passing my vcp5 exam this morning. Its been 2 years since I've had a go at an exam (and that was my vcp3). I've been studying desperately to upgrade my vcp3 to 5 before feb next year, and thought I'd have a dry run at the exam just to see what I needed to study. However I just managed to squeek in a pass (306 if your wondering).

    Whilst I'm glad I dont have to panic about completing it before feb anymore it has given me some good insights into what I need to play around with more within vsphere.

    I had my whats new course this week as well so I hope it wont take 8 months for vmware to send me the cert and list me a certified like they did the last time!
