8 weeks of #VCAP

As I begin to study for my VCAP5-DCA I realize that I have just over 8 weeks to get ready.  Now I'm familiar with a lot of the blueprint material as I cover it off in my day job, however some items I have never even used.  I've decided that I'm going to try and do a post on most of the material that I'm not familiar with and link to it here under it's corresponding objective.  Here's hoping this works :)  Big thanks to Tom Verhaeg (blog/twitter) for helping out with a lot of the scenarios as well!
