Hello People,
I am currently looking at sitting VMware VCP 5 and have a few questions.First being what is the best way of studying for the exam ? I have looked at a few options such as Trainsignal.com videos at $500, books off Amazon.Any ideas that others have used to get VCP let me know.Also I'm aware that I need to sit an official Vmware course at a training centre to sit the exam.

Second being setting up a lab environment, I only have a low powered laptop.I could buy a new laptop with 8GB plus ram but don't really need a new laptop or desktop.Second idea is to lease some rack time, if anyone knows a company/person I can rent a server for 30ish days please let me know.
