Good magazine. Just make sure if you attempt to use any code from there that you understand it fully. Either intentionally or unintentionally most scripts listed are wrong, bad variables, etc. You’ll have to go back through and fix.
505 is a great class. I thought I knew Windows(I had my MCITP: EA already) until that class. I will say though to be prepared to go the full time. Jason will not finish a class early. He definitely believes in getting you your money’s worth and will go as long as anyone in class wants.
Congrats! They have made a lot of changes and I’m interested in seeing how Facilitating will be this year. Can’t say I’m happy about it going up $100 and having to pay extra for any equipment in the class but it is cheaper than full price.
