here are so many good technical certifications out there today that it can be a daunting task to know which certifications path to take. If you are looking for a virtualization based certification path, the decision is a much easier one to make. VMware has laid out their virtualization certification path nicely on their website, which makes it easy to understand which course you need to take (let me emphasize NEED, VMware requires you take an Install, Configure and Manage or ICM course before you can certify) and what will help you to prepare. Unfortunately, what VMware doesn't do is give you an extensive list of resources that will help you prepare. They basically lay out the courses you need to take, ones that will help but are optional, and then point you to the exam blueprint. Well, lucky for you, I'm going to go deeper into what will help you pass the VCP5 exam you are studying for, because there are TONS of resource out there that will indeed get you over the 300 mark.
