As with any exam, experience and practice with the products is key. If you are not an administrator of a vCloud environment where you are making use of all the tested products and where you are regularly exposed to the objectives of the exam blueprint, consider building a test environment. This can be accomplished using VMware Workstation or Fusion or similar products running on a powerful workstation or laptop, or with dedicated home lab resources.
There are two courses recommended by VMware for this certification: the vCloud Director Install, Configure, and Manage course (a 3-day course delivered online or in a live classroom by a VMware Certified Instructor) and the self-paced and complimentary VMware vCenter Chargeback Fundamentals online course. Candidates should seriously consider attending these courses to supplement job-based knowledge.
Take advantage of the free online labs available via the VMware Hands-On Labs (HOL) online. Many of these labs are the same as those that were available during VMworld 2012, while others are new. In addition, several videos are available on the official VMware YouTube channel. Supplementing hands-on experience with these labs and videos will help round out knowledge in preparation for the VCP-IaaS exam. VMware has made a mock exam availableattempt this once you feel prepared for the exam.
