Preparing for Exams

There are many ways to prepare for the exams. Some popular favorites are exam prep books, flash cards, hands-on labs, MSDN training videos, and practice exams. In each monthly article, I’ll provide notes on the registration process plus tips for preparing for each exam.

The series schedule will include:

The SharePoint 2010 certifications are an invaluable part of an overall training and certification plan.
