Nope. Not for almost 2 years now. That was the old form, 3 weeks training and exams in Redmond.
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.
