VCP-IaaS Exam Experiences

I just did the VCP-IaaS exam this week at VMworld i Barcelona, and passed :-). I got 120 minutes (English is not my native language). The Exam has 85 questions. To pass the exam you will need to know how networking is setup and used in vCloud Director also roles in Chargeback will be a good thing to look at before taking the test. All in all you will have to know the products use with vCloud Director including vShield Edge. I used trainsignal and some online resources to prepare for the test, have a look at my VCP5-IaaS study guide for links to the sites I found to be good resources. VMW-LGO-CERTIFIED-PRO-CLOUD-K

Here are some great blogs on how to build you’re own vCloud homelab witch is a must for all who is taking the VCP5-IaaS Exam. There are no class requirement for the VCP5-IaaS but you have to be a VMware Certified Professional on vSphere 5 and then pass the VCP5-IaaS exam. There is a course from VMware on deploy and manage vCloud Director but it is not required.
