Microsoft Exam Share

Many thanks to Jon Prince for the following information.

I just thought I’d share some of the resources which I’ve recently found helpful in studying for the 410 exam.

The “Born To Learn” site was quite good as it has a “Prep resources by objective” which includes video’s, TechNet links and Labs.
