There is at present, no reason for you to re-qualify, and take another course, despite VMware recommending all take the What's New Course - but it's not a prerequisite.

There are currently two exams

VCP510 or VCP550 Exam.

That's because at present there is no VMware vSphere: What's New [V5.5] Course..

There is a

VMware vSphere: What's New [V5.0]
VMware vSphere: What's New [V5.1]

and ... VMware vSphere: What's New [V4.x to V5.5]

So the Test people, have not released any tests, we do not use tests, we use the software, and read the books, and We use the information provided in the EXAM BLUEPRINT and follow it...

So it sounds like I should go for the VCP 5.5 if I can find the 5.5 study practice exams...

It depends on why!

do you want to be a VCP510 or VCP550.....looking for a new job.... or just wanting current cert....

the reason I ask, is VCP60 is on the way.....

and as per other versions, it's likely again just completing VCP60 exam, with no need to do a course, and you could have a VCP60....we await VMworld......in San Francisco in 24-28 August 2014, it's not far away....

if you can wait two weeks.....
