Free "Basic Training" for SQL Server

I answer a lot of questions about SQL Server – on forums, in newsgroups, in presentations and so on – and many are “101”, or basic questions. That’s great!  I don’t have a problem with that at all – I enjoy helping someone that is new to SQL Server learn the ropes. Over the years I’ve collected some really great links that I can share with people about learning to manage SQL Server. I thought I would post those here, in the hopes that you’ll pass them around:
