Official Description

Check them out now at, and see how Ramp Up can help you become more employable by learning important and marketable skills.

My 2 cents thoughts

MyRampUp is a page off the MSDN.Microsoft site. It takes you to the Microsoft Learning site which is an aggregate site for all kinds of learning styles. It lets you filter by topic & lists; Textbooks, e-Learning & other courses. If you are looking for something online & free, click over on the Right Margin “Free Products”. You do need to register, it cost you nothing, & it lets you create your own training plan, which you add courses that take your fancy & tick them off when you’ve completed them.

Other related sites definitely worth a look


Thought for the day: Some people make it happen, Some people watch it happen, & some people ask “What happened?”
