    Hi Guy's,

    Studying for the 70-631 exam I've come across this:

    70-631 study guide
    70-630 study guide

    Both put together by MVP Becky Bertram.

    Hope this helps :)

    Am i right in thinking that Sharepoint consultants require a lot of software development skills?

    You can do a fair bit with it out the box. We put MOSS 2007 in about a year or so ago and have quite often come up against things that can't be done "out of box". We have quite a lot of custom lists for recording accidents, incidents, audits, etc., and now the department that runs these lists want to attach some business processes, none of which fit into the workflows provided with Sharepoint. Some things we have managed to find third party add ons that do what we want, but other things have gone onto a list for "proper" development jobs. Hopefully we'll be hiring a Sharepoint developer soon so we can start tackling these things.

    The way I see it, if you're only using Sharepoint as a simple document repository then you don't need to do much with it customisation wise. If you want to customise the look at feel you need to know a bit about ASP .NET master pages, HTML, CSS, general web design awareness and sometimes a bit of CAML if you want to customise list views for instance. If you want to start adding customised workflow and have lists process information as it's added or carry out some more complicated validation on metadata fields then you need to look at "proper" development, i.e. .Net code to put in as event receivers, custom features, etc.

    To a degree, but also we have various consultants come in and they usually have excellent reporting skills and usually trained at querying databases, thats probably the more relevant skill from what ive seen.

    The reason i asked is that most people that i have met that work with sharepoint as consultants tend to have a developer background.
