A very nice PDF which has been released by VMware to give an excellent almost step-by-step guide called VMware Horizon Workspace Reviewer's Guide, with many screenshots for implementation of the newly released VMware Horizon Workspace. I already detailed VMware Horizon Workspace with many screenshots in my posts, but for the implementation I haven't had the chance yet as the product suite has just been released. The single appliance is quite large in size (over 5 Gb), packed as a single OVA file.

The VMware Horizon Workspace Reviewer's Guide also provides different exercises which are helpful for the setup, and also after the initial setup of each of the appliance there are additional excercises (with screenshots) where you're able to do different admin tasks or additional add-on installations.
You can find the VMware Horizon Workspace Reviewer's Guide (PDF) here.
The Horizon Workspace appliance does not include VMware View 5.2 or VMware Mirage 4.0 products, which has to be downloaded separately. Those products are GA also.
