My VMware certifications were going to expire on the 12th of March, To keep that from happening I took and passed the VCP 6 – Data Center Virtualization delta exam. Since I only used selfstudy to achieve my VCP 5 certification I thought it was a smart idea to follow one of the suggested training courses. I attended the VMware vSphere: What’s New [V5.5 to V6] course. Next to that course I also attended the VMware vSphere: Certified Professional Exam Preparation Workshop [V1.0].
The training and the workshop are very helpfull towards the exam but not enough. I also installed the VMware ESXi 6.0 and VMware vCenter appliance in a test environment to get some hands on experience with the product.
