|Well understood examples of gauge/string correspondence
(AdS/CFT) arise from putting branes at singularities. In
particular four-dimensional N=1 superconformal gauge
theories are engineered putting D3 branes at the tip
We discuss new explicit constructions of Calabi-Yau
cones and their dual gauge theories. We then show how
generic exact checks of AdS/CFT are possible, within so
called "protected sectors" of the correspondence.
