NSX Certification (VCP-NV) Study Guide

Some of you may know by now that I am preparing for the VCP-NV certification. I have had a chance to complete the VMware NSX Technical Overview with Labs which was a nice starting point. I highly recommend the Overview with Labs if you do not have time to do the whole Install, Configure & Manage for NSX.

I am planning to take the VCP-NV exam in late February 2015 and am putting together the resources used, so keep visiting for those who are on the same journey.
