Well I did it with 9 business days of studying I attained VCP vSphere4 Status! Since I am not a good studier as my buddy Raj, I found the exam a little more difficult. When I found out that they lowered the passing grade to 60% I was happy, and yet I knew that they made the exam quite a bit more difficult. Alot of the questions were based on the new features, like vSphere Backup,vSphere Orchestrator and, vApp to name a couple. There was also alot of questions on iSCSI, vSwitching, and vDistributed Switches. I suggest someone gets hands on experience with vCenter Server 4, wherein it contains multiple hosts, so you can practise DRS, HA, Fault Tolerance, Vmotion, and other enterprise applications. Either way, it was fun to study till I was blue in the face, but next time I hope to take my time. If you plan on writing it, make sure you check my earlier blog, take your time, and read all the bullet points from the vSphere PDF documents. Good Luck!
