I haven't taken the training myself, but some SharePoint consultants I work with highly recommended Critical Path Training: http://www.criticalpathtraining.com/Pages/default.aspx

The company is a joint venture between Ted Pattison and Andrew Connell, who have written several popular SharePoint books.


An alternative approach to formal training is to study for the certifications. In the process of working through the certification requirements, writing code samples, reading MSDN, etc. I think you'll hit a lot of areas where you've never had any exposure and you'll probably learn a lot.

Practice tests from vendors like MeasureUp can also help you gauge your skills.

  • Yes, the MCTS 70-573 exam (SharePoint 2010, Application Development ) should be your first step.

+1 to SharePoint Wrangler's suggestion about Critical Path Training.

I'd also suggest the Microsoft Virtual Academy and Pluralsight

I'm definitely biased because I'm on the faculty, but I believe that USPJ Academy is a great way to learn and also quite affordable.

In fact, just today we are announcing that we are offering single courses for purchase if you'd like to give it a try.

Edit: Mod removed link as it looks USPJA is no more.
