Using Views to access form data

My mission in attending this camp is to figure out how to use Views 2 to access data on hundreds of applicants who have applied for courses in a certificate program. Since the data was entered via a form it’s not a content type and it isn’t node data either so how to access it all sliced and diced for editor or applicant viewing is the question. My sessions schedule includes Larry Garfield’s Views to the Next Level and Earl Mile’s How to Build a Site…I’m guessing and hoping that I’ll get some specific questions answered during the unconference part of the camp. Any suggestions for alternate sessions that might be helpful?
