Mindsharp SharePoint Designer References

Mindsharp SharePoint Designer References

When students take an instructor led class, it can be quite challenging to absorb 100% of the content being covered. Especially if the class extends beyond three days. In an effort to help with that retention I have compiled a list of resources from the SharePoint Designer class that I teach for Mindsharp. During my many years of teaching I have found it useful to provide students with references to information so that once class is over they can go back and refresh their memories on the various topics.
