VCP5 – Study Notes and Resources

On December 5, 2011 I passed the VCP 5 Exam!!! Was a difficult exam and I did a write up on my thoughts/experience here.


So from what I have heard not as much (if any) focus on configuration maximums in the VCP 5 exam – HAPPY DANCE!!! I hate memorizing configuration maximums – if I need them when designing or deploying I’ll look them up.
