Thought of outlining how I’m preparing for the (70-315)
Web Applications exam.
Step 1: I started out by reading the three recommended MOC courses (ASP.NET, ADO.NET, Upgrading
To ASP.NET). One advantage that I have being an MCT is that I can download the
Trainer kits for all the MOC courses.
Step 2: I tried one of the Transcender exams and scored 820/1000 which was a
fail (850 was the pass mark) but hey I’m happy. Usually the Transcender exams that
I have taken are very much harder than the final exam but this Transcender was
much easier. Which means that either this particular Transcender exam was not tough
enough or I have really studied well 😉
Step 3: Right now I’m going through the study
guide over at Cramsession, this
is sort of a revision of all the areas that I have covered, once I have done this
I will try to skim through Tim’s
70-315 links and spend some time reading areas that I am not sure of. After that
it will be a good dose of Transcender exams before I take the final exam in two days
I suddenly realised that September is creeping up next month and I have not been able
to do a single Microsoft certification on the .NET exams.
So I’ve now taken on a sort of Mission Impossible trying to do the five exams to get
my MCSD.NET before 31-Sep. I will be starting with the Web Development exam
next Tuesday and do two more this month and then try the other two next month. All
current MCSD get a free voucher for the Analysing Requirements exam until 31.
This is going to be my certification track.
