Programming and Learning from SD

I recently passed all the tests to get the MCSD and our company just achieved the Gold status (next to Silver Application Development) with the 4th developer passing the 3rd test. Here are some of the links and resources we used. The books for the tests are just coming out in September, so they weren’t available for our studying.
