Why are you selling items that are not available

If you would like to be COMPLETELY UNPREPARED for the exam, this is the book for you!  While the book was easy to read and follow and extremely helpful in gaining an understanding of VMsphere 5, it will NOT help you on the exam.  Many questions were asked about topics not even covered by this book.  Also note that the practice test included also does not reflect anything close to the actual exam.   Don't be fooled into believing that you can pass the exam if you are passing the practice test.  The VMware practice exam online is much closer to the real thing.    While the book was an easy read, the title should not reflect you having any chance to obtain "certification".
