ARE Data Mining the Internet

There is a lot of information out there on the internet to study for the exam.  I have been studying a while and have found quite a few resources and blogs.  Some just cover one section specifically or just have notes for a few sections, but you can come up with some pretty useful information.  So as a courtesy to you,  I have made a list of all the “places” on the interweb for good stuff.
