I figured that after a good solid two plus years of administering as well as designing, configuring and deploying Vmware ESX that i should get of my rear and finally work on getting my VCP. A good number for Vmware positions require it nowadays as its a pretty valuable certification, one of the few left other than Cisco.
Anyway, I have been taking a few practice tests and will be posting the questions that I either got wrong, or are pretty sure that I will not get correct if ever asked again.
