Throughout the year I try to share resources and information with you that I think will be helpful for you. Often times these resources will include links to free eBooks that we make available on a variety of topics. Today, I thought I would post a large collection of eBooks for you here so that you can find them in one place and consume them as you see fit. Also, if you find this list helpful, please share it with your peers and colleagues so that they too can benefit from these resources. Due to the incredible popularity of this post, I’ve added a second post on even MORE free Microsoft eBooks and Resource Kits available for you, in case you are interested. I hope you find these resources to be helpful in learning about and using the various solutions and technologies referenced. Did you find this information helpful? By the way, another great place to find free books is the E-Book Gallery for Microsoft Technologies on the TechNet Wiki. Thanks again for being a reader of my blog!
