Well, i”m on the horse again eventhough i fell off last time i got the notion of getting certified.
this time around i”m actually putting 2-3hrs of studying, hands-on-labs and blog searching, per night till i feel confident that the theory is down pat and i can sit an exam.
So what am i aiming for? being an infernal pessimist i decided to aim small this time..MCTS: .NET Framework 2.0 Web Applications should be within my reach for sure.
the certification requires two core exams to be passed:
Now, i”m pretty sure i could take those two and pass them in maybe 2nd try (never sat a MS exam so don”t know what to expect), but i”d rather go the long way and actually set the goal within the next quarter, study + take some courses (hell, who knows what else i”ll learn?).
The next one to follow, is by all accounts, the easiest one to pass (no heckling if you”ve passed it!!) so i”ll get that under the hat as well – all before September ”06 (check back to see how things are going – give me a kick up the arse if i slack off).
for this certification only one exam is to be passed:
1: Exam 70–431: TS: Microsoft SQL Server 2005 – Implementation and Maintenance
So lets see how things turn out – i certainly have the opportunity to get it done now..
