Practice files for Step By Step SharePoint Designer 2010 for non-site collection owners

I bought the book in the hope of a crash course in Sharepoint Designer. Unfortunately it has turned out to be more of a crash than a course. I dod not currently have my own site collection, so therefore am unable to carry out many of the exercises. This is particularly frustrating when it seems fairly obvious that many of the sample files such as CreateDVWP.aspx and DataSourceTest.aspx could easily have been included without the requirement to load a WSP file.

Is it possible to have these files separately?

  • Hi Michael,

    The first section of the book called "Is This the Right SharePoint
    Book for You?" tells you
    ---
    This book is for you if:
    ●● You have access to Microsoft SharePoint 2010, either Microsoft SharePoint
    Foundation 2010, Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010, or both products in your
    organization.
    --
    It goes on to say on that page:

    This book is NOT right for you if:
    ●● You do not have access to SharePoint 2010 in your organization, school, etc.
    -----

    So, it sounds like this isn't the right book for you. We have a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee, which you may want to take advantage of -
