New, free resources are available to give partners the best prep possible to pass their Microsoft Learning (MSL) exams. The guides were created by Microsoft Evangelist Keith Mayer, who recorded all the study resources that he used to pass the exams himself. Each guide helps partners self-assess their preparedness for each exam as well as providing free study resources for each objective area to quickly close knowledge gaps.
