Hi kamal0706

Are you looking for study materials? Some really good resources are the Nutanix Bible, nu.school YouTube channel and asking questions or mining data in the community forums.

Just completed NPP 5.0 certification yesterday.
I have to say it is tougher than 4.5.
Ensure to go through the training content - ECP Administration 5.0 NU.school.
Also since the exam expects you to have in depth knowledge of the concepts, ensure to refer to the Support Portal, simple keyword searches will yeild good detailed documents. Some good videos are on youtube as well for certain topics... AFS, ABS etc.

Passed two days ago.
I've to say it's a bit more focused on cli than the 4.5 (ncli, acli)
Prism Central of course and licensing rules.
Some questions are based on real life setup and maintenance so, hand on lab if you can.
Good Luck!!!

I passed the exam last week, the exam is more difficult than 4.5, take the Nutanix ECP Administration (5.0) course from nutanix education. Hope this helps and good luck !!
Just passed the NPP 5.0 exam 2 days ago! I think it was a good exam, if you study the ECM class and get through nu.school you'll be prepared. Also, the Nutanix documentation is amazing, so many resources out on the web.

Good luck!

Unfortunately If am not able to clear my NPP5.0 exam is all 5 attempts, What is the next step???
Completed NPP 5.0 yesterday. I agree with RAMAKRISHNA about study material. It had question around topic outlined above. I will suggest to play around demo portal for Nutanix to be familiar with Menu option for configuration options,Dashboard & Reports. That experience for Prism and it's configuration option was helpful.

I passed the 5.0 NPP (upgrade from 4.x NPP) a little over a week ago, but honestly I think persuing the 5.5 NCP might be a better route if you aren’t already heavily invested in study time. Nutanix launched quite a few new products and technologies that are not really covered in 5.0.

If you are just looking to add some letters on the end of your resume/LinkedIn profile then continue with the NPP, but if you want to have some good practical knowledge of the current offerings (whether utilizing them for a current position or to help secure the next one) I would lean more heavily on taking a look at the new NCP certification. If you look on nuschool there is a lot of material, I’d especially take adavantage of the free ECA training they are currently offering. Good luck!
