Passed Certification 70-315 – Web Apps with C#

Just passed 70-315 this morning!!

The problem with certifications is they often ask about stuff you never use (for one reason or the other) so you have to know everything. I used Amit Kalani’s training guideto prepare for the exam which is a very thoroughanalysis of the material with lots of step-by-step exercises and good sidebar hints for exam questions. My only complaint about the book is thesize – it is 1200 pages and weighs over 4 pounds! I wish they would have split it into a 5 book pack. Reading the book on the bus and metro this last week was really uncomfortable and who has time to sit down at a table to read a book these days?

The NDA prohibits discussing the exam questions (for good reason).Let’s just say that it wasreasonably challenging especially in the variety of topics asked.

Next: SQL Server or WindowsForms. Hmmmm…

    I booked the exam 2 weeks out and started with the Kalani book about 20 mins per day on the bus to my client in downtown DC.

    It was mostly revision for me and I skipped all the step-by-step exercises. Sure would have been embarassing if I had failed – being a C# MVP and all! 🙂

    Someone in our Rockville study group actually ripped the study book into several pieces of a few chapters each to make it easier to carry around… that’s one solution. 🙂
