“What?  Kevin – you said I might be able to take these for free?”

I copied/pasted these right out of a TechNet Plus Subscription e-mail I received today.  These are available for a price; usually as a package of a dozen or so courses for $288, which you have access to for 18 months.  OR if you’re TechNet Plus Subscriber, you can take them for free.

I figured that someone following this blog just might be on the fence about whether or not to subscribe… and this might help them make their decision.

And you can still get a discount on the subscription.  For details, check out this blog post.
