    Thanks a lot for sharing!

    P.S. The link for "Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 User's Guide" does not open.

  2. says:

    Thank you for sharing .. Really Helpful.. Cheers… :)

  3. mssmallbiz says:

    @ Jevgenij – Thanks for the feedback and glad you like them. I appreciate the heads up on the difficulty you had with the Dynamics CRM 2011 User's Guide. I have re-created the link again and updated the post with the new link (which I have gone in and used to verify it works again), so you should be good to go to download that one.


  4. mssmallbiz says:

    @ pandyamayur – My pleasure and glad they are helpful. Thanks for sharing your feedback on them.


  5. Yogesh Mulye says:

    Great list. Thank you.

    The partner app seems like is region specific. I am in Australia and the marketplace denied my access to download it.

  6. mssmallbiz says:

    @Yogesh – Thanks for the feedback on the eBooks and glad you like them.

    As for the app, it is available in Australia and there have been hundreds of downloads there already. I just released an update to the app to go live in Marketplace, so maybe it is in process right now which blocked your download. Can you try again in a couple of hours and see if it works then?

Another great place to find free books is the E-Book Gallery for Microsoft Technologies on the TechNet Wiki (…/11608.e-book-gallery-for-microsoft-technologies.aspx).  The gallery provides books in PDF, EPUB, and MOBI formats, and new books are posted on almost a daily basis.  For the latest updates, follow us on Twitter at @MSFreeEBooks.

  18. Aboo says:

    The LightSwitch training kit sends you to a Bitly error page warning of malicious content. :)  

  19. UNDISCLOSED says:

    Hi, Could you post some books to prepare for MSCA – Windows Server 2008?

  20. Thanks Eric.  Do you happen to have anything for Exchange 2010??

  21. mssmallbiz says:

    @ Angelnero – Thanks for flagging that one. Actually, that one links to an EXE file, so it is tripping a warning about possible risk. You can see the EXE link on that page and click it directly if you wish, or just click continue.
