    VMWare ESX 3.5 - book recommendation

    Just purchased VMWare ESX server 3.5.

    I would like some recommendations on good books on how to install, best practices, pitfalls etc.
    Does anyone have any experience with any of the literature out there and could they suggest any which are worth a read.

    Thanks in advance.

    I can surely recommend the official course from VMware. If you ever want to pursue the VMware certification you must follow that course. And the trainers are really good (at least in holland). I can help you out with a good book, but perhaps it would be wise to continue via PM

    I'll go one better

    Here is the complete list of sites I used when I was studying for my VCP...

    VI3Book.com <- this book is very good, better than official docs IMHO
    VMware Infrastructure 3 Documentation
    VMware Communities <- spent a lot of time on these forums
    VCP Quiz >> Login - wpQuiz <- I pretty much passed my VCP thank to this quiz!
    vmuser - the Home of VMware Users

    I also recommend reading the vmware forums, that and the manuals are all I read and it seems to have turned out well anyway

    Gone from 2.5 to 3 already, and 3.5 will be during the summer holidays
