Now that HP have released some offical study material, its not really much use without some sort of lab...
Is AOS8 available as a VM with demo/trial licenses that could be used as a study lab?
If you are Aruba Partner your are able to download the OVA Image from the Support Portal (https://support.arubanetworks.com).
You can order eval license over the HPE My Networking Plattform - required Partner Login.
In my opinion the link for the eval is hard to find...
The license are valid for 60 or 90 days. I guess this sould enough for do the exam.
If you work for a partner and have access to Arubapedia, it may be good to search for Workbench on there. That allows you to run remote labs even on real equipment.
If you don't work for a partner, you can work with your partner and/or Aruba SE to see if they can help you to get VMM and VMC evals for your lab.
