I just finished my MS 070-300 test, Analyzing Requirements And Defining Microsoft .NET Solution Architectures, and I PASSED. That means I’m now a Microsoft Certified Solutions Developer in .NET. According to MCP Magazine, as of November 6, 2003, there are only 4,711 people in the world with that certification, so it still might hold a little weight.
Regardless, I passed what I figured to be probably the hardest of the tests in the MCSD.NET series. It was case studies with questions over each case study rather than a simple set of questions (which is what all my others were). I don’t like the case studies because they sort of imply certain “right” and “wrong” answers that may or may not be quite what you do in real life. They’re very… subjective. In other tests, it was much more clear which answers were “right” and “wrong.” If the answers were skewed a certain way, it was kind of obvious from the question which way they would want you to skew them. Not so in this latest test, and I think that was the tough part.
I suppose it’s moot now. I PASSED!
