SharePoint 2010 Administration exam guide

While preparing for the exam 70-668 SharePoint Administration I found these resourceful links from Microsoft. SharePoint Administration exam preparence guide.

Almost its covering all the topics.I would suggest to go with your Service application configuration and how its functional architecture.Despite I have passed in Application Development and Configure in sharepoint 2010,I personally feel there are so many things in SharePoint 2010 to learn. I learned lot of useful tips while preparing for this exam.Hopefully I will get good mark in this exam too. But I clearly made my mind not to use anyother source to update my knowledge on Administration exam except the above link.

Script CSS registration in SharePoint

Today I spent couple of my valuable hours to get to know more about control and in SharePoint. When you set the "Localize" parameter of the above control "false",you need to keep all your "javascript or CSS files" under 1033 folder of 14 hive.Even I tried my luck on useing $SPUrl on these control and set te value ~SiteCollection. In my sitecollection I put all my css and js file.Still I could not able to get the things works for me. Later,I attach these branding related stuffs in my Custome Solution Package.(.wsp) Then reference the javascript file So I ignore the parameter Localize,otherwise my page will not be used the javascript.Instead it will check files inside 1033.
