      This video doesn't seem to match up. I started watching before and got the first video, but now, it says "day 2" even though this is module 1, part 1. What's up with that?

      @Xander: This was a two-day Jump Start event and we split them up in to two different course offerings. So this is the first module of the second day. Hope that clears it up a bit.

      Did anyone find the code for 70-481? I was all excited about 70-480, but there are no more promo codes available. It's only January and they are all gone.

      Do a search Liz, there is another code now. I believe it is 'HTMLMPN' - allows free testing for 70-480. Like the code before it, I'm sure it has only so many uses / claims.

      Will  you recommend a JavaScript book - preferably one that delves into the DOM similar to what ya'll covered on the other series.  Great videos btw...  and I will look for Michael on Pluralsight!  Students get a free 90 subscription through Dreamspark - might want to plug that for Microsoft.  *grin*
