Visual Studio 2005 Team System Basics Training

The Level 200 training that I wrote about earlier (see Ramping up on Team Foundation Server – Some Guidance) has now been released, you can download at http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=527e2a17-1dea-4d0b-9484-6ae43d00e570&displaylang=en.
