70-529: Passed with a 795

Which now makes me a Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist: .NET Framework 2.0 Distributed Applications, in edition to my existing ones for Windows and Web apps.

Now... only one final test stands between me and a MCPD: Enterprise Applications Developer certification... a GD design test that I'm going to schedule for a couple of weeks out.

Thoughts on 70-529:

It occurred to me afterwards that this is the 12th Microsoft Certification exam I have passed of a total of 17 attempts... and I've really come to understand the programming ones a bit too well... they are all based on the same conventions within the .NET framework which means that even if you don't know the correct answer right off the bat... it's not always that difficult to guess the right one based on previous experience.

I will admit though that I didn't do to well at the WSE 3.0 part... which says to me I need to brush up on that a bit more for my own benefit despite the passing score.


  • Bit of a noob, aren't you Brendon? Big ass student loan, yet still taking Microsoft exam's (even passing some of them).

    We used to call MCSE's 'Must consult someone experienced' -- for good reason. Stop putting it off and just get yourself a damn job...

  • Bad news... I’ve got a job. I’ve been a dev at the same place for the last 3.5 years now. Not only that... each of those cert tests I’ve taken has been paid for by my employer... just like the masters degree I finished last year.

    n00b you say?

  • Congrats on MPD!!!

    I too need just 70-529

    and 70-549 to get MPD

    May I ask what specific tools/materials and version numbers of these you used to aid your pass?

    Thanks in advance
