Updates & Corrections

Per VMware Education Services, the current blueprint which controls the questions on the VCP510 test is valid until the next major revision of vSphere software. vSphere 5.1 is NOT a major revision and therefore the blueprint will not change because of its release. Since the blueprint will not change, the test will be unaffected by the release of vSphere 5.1. There will be no questions on the VCP510 test that specifically address capabilities in vSphere 5.1 that are not part of or are different from vSphere 5.0. The reader should prepare for the VCP510 test as if vSphere 5.1 does not exist.
