    1. Awesome document! I wish I had found it earlier. Is it possible to subscribe and be notified when the document is updated? Do you want or need any help with the last few docs? I’m trying to remember topics that I noticed on the test that weren’t in the document in case I didn’t pass. I’m debating on switching back over to finish up MS cert or waiting until I get VCP4 results.

      1. Hi Rob,

        Best of luck with VCP4, I’ve not been offered the beta exam so I to wait a while.
