Microsoft Learning Manager

I went on to the Microsoft site looking for books on SQL Server 2008.  What you get is an incomprehensible jumble of stuff.  Don’t tell me about everything there is – let me get to the information I want.

I used to really like the Microsoft site as there was masses of information that usually logically arranged.  Now we get some many layers between us and the information that I’m likely to expire of old age (OK I know its not that long to go) before finding it. 

Another example – I went looking for the information on the SQL Server exams – the logical route through the site leaves you with the impression there isn’t an upgrade from SQL 2005 MCITP to the 2008 version.  Wrong! But oh how you have to search.

I’m coming to the conclusion that the only way to access the Microsoft site is to search from outside and hope you can get to what you need.

A triumph of style over substance at the moment.

    Richard, We recently revised the Microsoft Learning Web site to have technology-specific certification pages — like the one for SQL at http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/certification/cert-sql-server.aspx — which provide the available certifications for the technology along with upgrade paths. In the coming months, we’ll be working to revise the Learning Manager to make it more usable. Thanks for your comments! Julie Lary, Microsoft Learning
