Current Certifications and exams are based on current release of VMware vSphere 5.5.

So you need to know and read all the docs for VMware vSphere 5.5.

The "Unofficial Official VCAP5-DCA Study Guide" is based on VCAP510.

There are two available VCAP5-DCA exams you can pick during your exam registration

1) VCAP510 - vSphere 5.0 Based Exam
2) VCAP550 - vSphere 5.5 Based Exam

Once passed either one,  you will be VMware Certified Advanced Professional 5 – Data Center Administration.

Hope this helps.
