So my colleague Sune, who might eventually get around to updating SQLJoint, finally coaxed me into taking the exam even though I never did get around to actually preparing for it. The only help I had was a Transcender from the COM days. Turns out, not that much has changed in the exam format. Lucky me.
With this one down I'm only a single exam short of achieving MCSD.NET so I may just have to take a look at 70-316 Developing and Implementing Windows-based Applications with Microsoft Visual C# .NET and Microsoft Visual Studio .NET in the very near future. Who knows I might be able to do this one with minimal effort too; one can only hope. This MCSD project of mine has been going on forever so I just want it over with at this point. I really can't stand having unfinished projects running for years and years :)
In case you were wondering about my score it was a clean 700. Work you do to get beyond 700 is wasted right? Right??? :) The score is actually quite a bit lower than my usual ones which normally run in the high 800 to low 900 area but I guess the amount of work I put into this one shows. It also shows that my standard operating procedure of doing a test exam, reading material, doing another test exam really does work.
