VMware Certified

It’s been a while since the last time I posted and it looks a if I am posting here mainly to brag.

A little late, but I wanted to post that I took the VCP510 exam last month and finally passed it. I state finally because this was the second attempt at the exam. It was a difficult exam for me but now I am proud to say that I am a VCP5-DCV, VMware Certified Professional 5 – Data Center Virtualization.


For those that find this post studying for the exam, these are the tools I used to help me study:

1. The guys over at LabGuides put together some really good guides and resources to help anyone setup a nested lab. Use this site and their resources, setup a nested lab and practice, practice, practice. There’s nothing like hands-on experience to help you gain the knowledge needed to work in the field and also to help you with studying for the exam. You can find their site here:


2. VMware’s own VCP5-DCV Exam Blueprint was full of valuable information that helped me study for the exam. I had originally purchased a book titled¬†VCP5 VMware Certified Professional on vSphere 5 Study Guide by Brian Atkinson and used it to study for my first attempt at the exam but it wasn’t enough. However, it is still a good book to use as reference material during your studying and really useful when working in a lab environment. But to really study and get¬†fully prepared for the exam, I can’t recommend the VCP5-DCV Exam Blueprint enough.
