If you're around today at TechEd:

  • Go to Shelby's lunch session on Exam Forensics (LUN52) in N310E at noon... it should be fun and yesterday she told me about a few new things we just got OK'd to talk about yesterday that she'll announce today.
  • Come say hi, I'm in the blogger's lounge or at the booth until noon, at which point I will leave to learn about exam forensics...
  • If you don't think you're quite ready to take your exam on site, you can still stop by and take a free practice test (from one of our great partners SelfTest or MeasureUp) up in the study hall in S330. Go check it out.


If you're not at TechEd, you can join the Exam Forensics live meeting in a week or so from the comfort of your own home.
