MCSD...Finally!

Monday, December 18, 2006 9:42 AM

In passed the 70-301 exam this morning (finally), which now gives me my MCSD designation! w00t!

I kept putting this one off over and over since the summer, but finally thought "what the heck, I might as well just write it. If I fail it again (I've taken it a few times already), then I'll just focus on my 2.0 cert upgrades for my MCAD". So I studied for a couple of hours this morning, didn't really prep, and went in totally relaxed with a "so what" attitude. about 2/3 of the way through I was feeling really good about my chances (although I've felt that way before to dire results), but tried to just focus question by question. Great seeing the "Congrats you passed" screen at the end though.

Onto the .NET 2.0 exams!

Congratulations! I can certainly relate to your thoughts about "if" you'd failed...after taking 70-300 I thought to myself if I failed that I would just hang it up and stick with my MCAD...but fortunately I passed and finally achieved my MCSD.

Like you, I also have to take steps toward .NET 2.0 exams as well...my boss just showed me up good by taking nearly all of them in rapid succession and passing. Thanks boss :|
