Thanks to a recent blog post from Julie Lary on the Microsoft Born to Learn blog I discovered a whole slew of free exam coaching sessions for various Microsoft certification exams on the company’s Web site. To quote from Julie’s post: “Taught by Microsoft Certified Trainers (MCT), these sessions elaborate on what you can expect on an exam along with tips for how to prepare.” They show up on the Microsoft Learning Live Meetings page, which currently looks like this:

Topics covered include Exchange Server (exams 70-662 and 70-663), SharePoint Server (exams 70-541, 70-573, 70-631, 70-667, and 70-668), SQL Server (exam 70-432), Windows Server (70-640, 70-642, 70-646, 70-647, 70-659, and 70-403), and Windows Client (exam 70-620 Vista). Admittedly, some of these items (Vista in particular) are a little out of date. But there is a lot of good, free stuff in here. If you’re thinking about taking or preparing for any of these exams, I urge you to check this stuff out. It’s all pretty good, and quite relevant to the exam prep process. Here’s a summary table:


Topic Exam Topic Exam
Exchange Server 70-662 Windows Server 70-640
  70-663   70-642
SharePoint Server 70-541   70-646
  70-573   70-647
  70-631   70-659
  70-667   70-403
  70-668 Windows Vista 70-620
SQL Server 70-432 .NET Framework 70-536


I’m not sure what the lifetime of content on this page might be, so it may be wise to act sooner rather than later, especially if you are pursuing some of the older exams in this list.
