Cram for your exams with Microsoft Learning (it’s on the house)


We’ll be hosting three Live Meeting ‘cram for your exam’ sessions to help new people get started. We’ve done this at TechEd before, and it seems like it goes really well.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND:


These are for people who have some familiarity with the underlying product (Vista, Active Directory, .NET development), not for someone who’s never touched the stuff. A trainer will lead the sessions to help focus your studies for the exam, share tips and tricks, and get you motivated to finish up and take it. Certification veterans and new people are both welcome–but the focus will be for those less experienced in exam taking. What we will NOT be doing: reviewing actual questions, doing technology training, or providing any information that is non-disclosure-bound.


Of course.

Anything else you need to know? I feel like I’m forgetting to tell you something about this. While I try to remember, I will tell you that I’m working from a coffee shop in my neighborhood today. It is very pleasant. I’ve invested in a croissant and a cup of coffee. Maybe I’ll have a cookie in a bit, since this might be my last chance.* Bittersweet!


<update April 10>Here is what I forgot to mention the first time – these sessions are hosted via Live Meeting so you can attend from wherever you are! I updated the top of the post, too.


<update APril 14 – added reg info for 536 cram session>

    We started these 10 years ago over at Michael’s web site but the interest level slowly faded over time.

    Good luck!

  2. Andrew Hill says:

    Will these sessions be available offline if we are unable to attended live?

  3. This is a great idea!  Thank you for organizing this event.  As an MCT I’m always looking for events that my students/peers can use to increase knowledge and become more prepared to prove that knowledge via certs.  This promises to be one of those events!

    Thanks again.
