Free Microsoft exercises for Excel, SQL, VBA, etc
Our main business is providing classroom training courses in the UK (or anywhere else which is warm or interesting ...!). However, we realise not everyone can make it over here, so we've published all of our training exercises free online (see hint below for limitations on use). Just choose a category from the list below!
|Analysis Services||Exercises on the two strands of SQL Server Analysis Services: the newer tabular model version of SSAS, and the older multi-dimensional model implementation of SSAS, using cubes.|

None of the exercises or supporting files may be copied in any form or used commercially without the prior written permission of Wise Owl (although you're welcome to use them for testing your own knowledge).
