Access Free Virtual Labs from Microsoft

I just found another gem that I”m sure everyone will love. While surfing over at IIS.net I saw that they had 5 virtual labs on IIS, three on IIS 7 and two on IIS 6. These are the real deals where you connect to an actual Virtual Machine and have free reign over it. It comes with a PDF lab manual that resembles the labs from the Official Curriculum that a CPLS would use. After digging a bit further I found that TechNet also had quite a few Virtual Labs available on Vista, SQL, Exchange, Office 2007, ISA, SharePoint, SMS, and Server 2003.


I thought it would be a good idea to put these labs all in one place for people to use. I know I”ll be taking them!!!
