As promised, now that I've finished producing the 7-part series on self-study items for the System Center 2012 suite of products, I am circling back and consolidating these separate parts into a single study guide. This post is for those who prefer to have all of their System Center 2012 study resources in a single post rather than distributed among a 7-part series. Consolidating this material also provides me a chance to offer a different way of viewing the material, and of updating certain parts that I left off earlier (I've learned a good bit about where to go to find the available resources for System Center as I've worked through this series, and hopefully this consolidated guide will benefit from that experience).
For those of you who still prefer to have your material presented in discreet parts, here is the list of each of those posts for your ease of reference:
NOTE: Because this is a consolidated study guide, I have done what I can to eliminate repitition as much as possible. Some overlap undoubtedly is still present, but where it makes sense to consolidate (especially where many individual products are referenced in a series of videos), I have moved those to the "General" section under the relevant category.
