My first recommendation is to schedule the test now! I know what you’re thinking: “But I haven’t even begun to study yet!” Fine; begin to study, but have a “guidepost” out there and a “looming deadline.” Don’t leave it to chance that you will have enough time to work it in one day and then schedule the test when you are ready. You will study more, and study better, after you have scheduled the test.
My second recommendation is, whenever you look at any study material; focus on five key areas, which are the following:
- Configuration maximums (for anything!)
- Any new feature on vSphere 5.0
- Ports (they love ports!)
- Tables (anything that you find in a table)
- Dialog boxes (spend time so that you know what’s on each dialog box in the GUI tools of vSphere...and what’s not on them)
