  • Windows Azure

First check out the training material and then take the test. The tracks are nicely build up and you can take them at your own pace.

They give you a nice overview of the different techniques and provide a nice mix of in-depth knowledge and overview of the products and features used.

Make sure to check out the virtualization tracks. They also hold a lot of info on the new upcoming version of SCVMM2012.

Each track provides you also with the materials and links to related eval versions of the software.
