Now that the VCP on vSphere 4 exam is finally live, VMware have released a number of official resources to help those who want to obtain what will quickly become the new “industry standard” virtualization certification.

The exam blueprint is THE document to base all your study on as it tells you exactly what you get tested on, if you’re studying something that’s not in the blueprint you’re wasting your time:

There is also a new official mock exam, great for you to judge whether you’re ready to take the real thing:

So the blueprint will tell you what you need to know, and the official documentation is the best material to study from as the questions are written from the documents you will find at:

http://www.vmware.com/support/pubs/vum_pubs.html

There are also a number of unofficial resources which can be very useful too. Fellow blogger Simon Long has some excellent practice questions and a version of the exam blueprint with hyperlinks taking you directly to study resources:
