Like several others out there, I am planning on taking the Beta 71-510 exam next week. Being that this is the first time this test has existed, it is difficult to figure out what to study and where to find study materials (other than the obvious – experience with TFS itself). I’ve put together a few links that I’ve been using while studying for the exam so I thought I’d post them here in case anyone else finds them useful.
