@ Gail - I was waiting for a MCM

Why??

i could be wrong but i'm sure I'm not. I wouldn't think that the MCM course will teach you hex, binary, file offsets and the like. You either know it or you don't.


MCM course?
It's self-study these days. Videos sure, various training courses if you pay for them, but your choice.

Don't they run a boot camp in Redmond?

Nope. Not for almost 2 years now. That was the old form, 3 weeks training and exams in Redmond. Now it's just 2 exams, if you want training you have to organise and locate, or you can self-study.

Ah right, gotcha.

But, back to my original quote, no study material on hex, binary, file offsets or file layouts

I think that's classified as 'stuff you should already know'. Paul's course, for eg, if you didn't understand hex then you'd really struggle with the page internals and log internals sections (better part of 2 full days). That said, you could probably pass the exams without knowing the binary structure of the mdf file.
