Well this morning I took the Microsoft Exam 70-310 entitled ‘Developing XML Web Services and Server Components with Visual Basic .Net and the .Net Framework’. I’m glad to say I passed despite feeling a bit worse for wear this morning (one too many pints last night) and can now move onto the next one on my list which is 70-229 Designing and Implementing Databases with Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Enterpise Edition.
After passing the SQL Server exam I will be an MCAD, I was debating whether to take the last exam and go for MCSD but to be honest I want to move onto MCTS and MCPD as the .Net 1.1 exams are rapidly becoming out of date.
I’m off on holiday to Cancun next Tuesday and with no studying to do and no contract at the moment I can sit back and relax for a couple of weeks before diving into my next bit of work.
EDIT: After looking at my transcript in the MCP area, it turns out doing exams 70-305, 70-315 and 70-310 is enough to acheive MCAD status, so there you have it, I’m now an MCAD! No need to do exam 70-229 (as it’s becoming rather dated), I’ll move onto upgrading my MCAD to MCTS and MCPD by taking the upgrade exam 70-551.
