Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 Practice Exams

So Microsoft are releasing the exams for Dynamcs CRM 2011, currently there are two availabile:

There will be more to follow so I'll try to keep this page upto date.

In terms of getting ready for the exams there are instructor led and e-learning courses available from Microsoft, or you can find all the information you need from the implementation guide and SDK. However how do you know when you're ready to take the exam, the answer is to take practice exams.

Here is a link to the accelerated ideas web-site which offers free practice exams including for the above CRM 2011 exams. I've not taken the proper exams yet but the practice one seems to be asking the sort of questions that I think will be asked in real life.

CRM 2011 JScript IntelliSense

So I've been messing around with CRM 2011 and one of the big things that I like is the Web Resources. It's much nicer to be able to write JScript in Visual Studio rather than the script window in previous versions of CRM.

The only draw-back that I've found is that you need to remember the syntax for the Xrm.Page object. Well help is at hand from PatrickVerbeeten.com

The page shows a link to a js file which you can reference within your JScript files to get IntelliSense.

Happy JScripting....
