I took a free MS Project exam by reading this blog.
I relearned about this page, through taking this course, DAT201x Querying with Transact-SQL:
Two great tracks on Edx by Microsoft around Big Data, and Front End Development. I am taking the front end development course during my on-bench training time, along with the Data Science track.
Edx Microsoft courses are free to audit, and cost about $99 to obtain a certificate.

Great things about Edx.org, Microsoft classes I have taken:
- Self service education – learn on your own schedule, and on your own time.
- Great user interface – easy to navigate, with subtitles, and nice collaboration with other expert sites. Meaning if a company teaches the material better, then they partner with them and provide you with a free login! ie. DataCamp: https://www.datacamp.com/home
- No commute – the downside is your primary interaction is in the discussion groups. However the speakers are really engaging.
