VCP4 Beta exam

Today, I took the VCP4 Beta exam. And last chance to take is tomorrow. I was lucky to get an invitation, as I fulfilled the two prerequisites: 1. to be a VCP and 2. to have participated in the vSphere 4 beta program. However, I had my doubts about taking the exam as it was announced rather suddenly and it gave me less than two weeks to study for it. But I thought, what the heck, let's study hard for two weeks and then see what happens...

The exam was quite tough, there were more questions than there will be in the final test. Because I'm a non-native English speaker, I got an extra 30 minutes. But still, 270 minutes is not much for 270 questions! That's one question per minute for 4½ hours straight and no breaks... The exam is covered by the NDA so I can't go into details, but I'm glad I reviewed the configuration maximums and then I should have spent more time on resource management (resource pools), iSCSI, paravirtualization, NPIV, and storage.

For study material, I've used:

And now, we just have to wait 6-8 weeks to get the results...
