Great find

good courses they explain with class room type setup server environment. definitely worth looking at. You can D/L and follow the samples.

Agreed MVA is a useful resource.

free forever. microsoft want you to know and use their products. and for traditional certification you can still go to one of the extortionate testing centres

My experience so far was that after clicking all the links in a course you can download a Certificate of Completion. There was no exam or quiz so it doesn't confirm your knowledge.

you are incorrect. every lesson I've looked at has a 5-question quiz. upon completion of all quizzes and watching all videos you get the full number of points for the course and a certificate of completion. It also generates a "transcript" PDF of all completed modules

tkssssssssssssssss

Thanks!

Will have a look

In the full 2,200,000 registered I am 34,000!
