I’m currently pursuing the VCDX status.
I’ve writen the Enterprise Exam at VMworld 2009 and passed. Up next the design exam!
I did not get the change to update this page as much as I would like due to a busy schedule.
Hopefully this will soon change.

On this page links to documents and articles will appear which I have read and think are an addition to the Enterprise Administration Exam study guide written by Peter van den Bosch.
