A Geeks Guide2... Microsoft Training 365
Save over £580 at Reg Books
Geeks Guide2 This week we’re offering Reg readers a huge introductory discount on a Microsoft Training 365 Technical Subscription. For the next 28 days you will save over £580 on this IT pro and developer training hotbed by ordering the subscription via the Register Books website.
What is it?
Considering that the subscriptions are newly launched this week, we’d better start off by letting you know what they are. First of all, Microsoft Training 365 is unsurprisingly a subscription service, similar to TechNet and MSDN. Coming in five flavours, it provides you with access to every official Microsoft online course, past, present and future, for 12 months within your chosen package, those being either desktop (140+ courses), IT pro (1,100+), developer (300+), technical (1,500+) or premium (the whole lot).
- Excellent Value – saves you potentially tens of thousands of pounds in training costs.
- In-depth training on Microsoft topics.
Improved productivity by using it as an on the job quick reference.
- The ability to learn about the latest technologies before anybody else (inc. training for betas).
- Worldwide access, anytime of the day.
- No complicated setup or cost – start training within 30 minutes.
Microsoft Training 365 Technical Subscription
With GG2 you can save over £580 on this 12 month subscription.
A combination of both the IT pro and developer packages, the technical subscription is available for a limited time for just £498.99 ex. VAT (£586.32 inc. VAT) down from £999 ex. VAT (RRP £1,173.83 inc. VAT). This 12 month subscription entitles you to over 1,500 courses on .NET technologies, Exchange and Windows Server, SQL, Visual Studio and much (much) more. This would come to over £40,000 worth of Microsoft technology training if you bought the courses individually. In addition, you will also be given access to any other courses released during your subscription duration as part of the deal, for example the new SharePoint 2010 courses due for release in the coming months.
A full list of current courses can be found here.
In addition to getting more courses than you can shake a stick at, a lot of them feature Microsoft Virtual Labs. These provide you with a direct connection to remote hosting equipment, which allows you to virtually configure and control a real working system to test skills developed on the courses or to trial a new idea – without risking your company’s or your own personal equipment.

Yeah, they're both OS's but...
whenever I learn something new in windows I need to take a bath.

(You're missing the "how to push a mouse" course)
No difference in complexity or difficulty between Windows or *nix. They're just OSes. Interesting how the saddos push (.e.g.) Linux as easy so they can persuade their grans to use it and earn bragging rights for converting people, but make out there's some challenge to it amongst IT people. Still, if it makes you guys feel adequate in your own minds, who am I not to laugh at you?
