Thanks MSLearning for the heads up!
Yes indeed, there will be 2 new books this month, but the links to download them will not work until April 15th! So you’ll need to try the links again then!
Windows Small Business Server 2008 Administrator’s Companion (Pro—Administrator’s Companion) by Charlie Russel and Sharon Crawford
Microsoft Visual Basic 2008 Express Edition: Build a Program Now! by Patrice Pelland
As soon as they’re available, I’ll update this post with pictures to them as I usually do! Which also is a good way to ensure there aren’t any issues downloading them like past books (Let’s not forget the massive Vista Resource kit from before :))
So keep on the look out and more free books coming soon! :)

Here’s a consolidated list of a number of the resources I regularly put up here, so you can find them easier!
5 Free Virtualization Training Courses for the Holidays! (HyperV)
I’m not sure how long this is going to last, so I highly encourage you to sign up, get your class registered in and taken!
This course is highly recommended and valuable!
How much does Free Microsoft Learning Cost? (Hint: Free!)
A whole series of Free E-Learning which used to cost a substantial amount of monies, but is Freeeee! Thanks Microsoft! :)
Sign up for the Microsoft Press Book Connection Newsletter now
Just go there, sign up and monthly you’ll receive an email which has the latest free E-books from the MS Press Team! Caveat: the books are typically only available for 5-7 days at a time – so you should act as soon as you get the emails!
More Free Training?!
Microsoft Elevates America with Social Responsibility
More Free Training at the High and Low level, in addition to some kinds of assistance for furthering education!
Microsoft Virtual Labs
Every wanted to try out a product you’ve never installed, or even downloaded. Or you want to learn a new application, or even Programming language. The Microsoft Virtual Labs are the perfect solution there. They include not only immediately available applications for you to test in a real lab environment, but they also have ‘training labs’ so you can go through an educational process in order to learn the material. The best part is, you’re not bound by the material either – So if you want to think outside the box of training you can, but if you’re not sure what to learn they provide guidance there!
We’re still waiting for the launch of more Beta Certification exams and other/more free stuff, but definitely take advantage of the resources above as they’re infinitely useful!

If you like me get errors when you click Well, here is a way around that, so you can get what you expect, and not have to suffer through a lack of download!
Simply right click on the “Download E-Book” icon, and just “Save Link As” or whatever you see in your browser of choice (FF or IE).
It will pull down as a pdf_loader.pl, so you’ll need to rename it, but it should work fine.
(Just completed the download myself, and it works! Hooray!)
