    Hi Team

    Am working in the field of IT as a desktop engineer and would like to elevate my position to system administrator. Hence am keen on taking VCP exams.

    I have completed Sun Solaris 10 training and am scheduled to give my papers. Also i have 2 books on VMWARE advance and intermediate guides

    VMware ESX Server: Advanced Technical Design Guide (Advanced Technical Design Guide series)
    VMware Infrastructure 3: Advanced Technical Design Guide and Advanced Operations Guide

    Am not financially sound hence cannot pay for the training as it's very expensive. Hence can you kindly advice me on any materials that i can download and learn to clear VCP. I have VMWARE installed at my place.Would be great if some one can advice me so that it can help me clear the exams and earn a better living. Appreciate all the assistance.

    I am certified VCP VI3 and VCP vSphere 4. Which version are you studying? Let me know which version and I'll give you all the info you need to pass the exam.

    As mentioned in a previous post you do have to attend a course to be able to gain the cert which is about 2k.

    Yes, you need to take the course in order to pass the VI3 exam, the VI3 exam is actually being retired in march so unless you know it inside out already you'll be hard pushed to clear it by then. As always tech exams are only there to prove you know about what you are already working with.

    Also stay far far far away from braindumps for course material you will find no better reference than the vmware website.you will need to download and study the vi3 maximums sheet and know about limitations of other vmware products too.
