Join Rick Crisci for an in-depth discussion in this video Before we begin, part of VMware vSphere Certified Professional on vSphere 6 Cert Prep (2V0-621): The Basics.
- [Instructor] Before we begin this course, let's talk about a few things that you should know. Now I know you might be tempted to skip over this introduction but stick with me for a moment while I mention some really important resources that can help you succeed and I promise the whole process will take less than three minutes. Now first off, just because you're taking this course online doesn't mean that you can't ask me questions. I'd like to invite you to connect with me on LinkedIn. Feel free to contact me anytime via LinkedIn. You're welcome to reach out with any questions you may have as you're preparing for your VCP exam.
And I'm also constantly releasing material that can help you understand vSphere better and help you get prepared to achieve your certification. Our course library has many virtualization related courses and it gives you all of the knowledge you need in order to pass the VCP exam and data center virtualization. We've put together an extensive library of content that is delivered by some of the best instructors in the business. There are many available resources that are demonstrated in our vSphere courses here.
We'll present options that you can use to gain hands-on experience at home. You can create your own lab using VMware workstation, or you can take advantage of the free labs seen here from VMware. It might also be beneficial for you to go find a complete practice exam, if you're preparing for the VCP exam or even if you're just preparing for the vSphere Foundations Exam. Trainertests.com provides complete practice exams with embedded video tutorials for a number of VMware certifications. And best of all, if you need to take vSphere 6 Foundations Exam, it is available there completely free of charge.
I have also created a collection of links that I reference throughout this course, including things like recommended machines for home labs, or places where you can find lab rentals. All of these resources are located at www.trainertests.com/lynda. This course will give you an idea of what to expect on the certification test and how to best prepare, and also will give you a guided tour of the videos and resources in our library that are available to you. So let's go ahead and get started.
