Where to sit a VMware VCP5 Exam?
I have to pick an exam centre in Auckland, can anyone recommend one of these options which appear to offer VMware exams.

* AMES I.T. Academy, 500 Queen St
* Queens Academic Group, 246 Queen Street
* Techtorium Computer Training, Broadway,Newmarket
* Auldhouse Computer Training, Ponsonby road

I guess they should all be o.k. but I've been in some exam rooms that weren't the best for concentration.

Has anyone here sat this exam? I did the training in June so need to refresh a bit. I'm hoping to setup a test system running ESXi inside VMware Workstation or VMware Fusion on the Mac and I've got some example test questions.

Personally I'd say if you can get an exam slot at Auldhouse, go for it.

I've also done an exam around a year ago at Techtorium, very clean, large exam room.  Auldhouse's exam room iirc has funny aircon and it can easily get too warm/cold, Techtorium (maybe because of the bigger room) seemed to have a more controlled 'climate'.

Never had any experience with Queens or any of their staff etc (seems they moved into 246 after I stopped working in that building), and never sat an exam at AMES (they aren't my first choice though).
