Certifications, MCM, SQL Server
I just received notice today that I received a passing score on the first of the MCM exams. I must say, that the few weeks have been extremely nerve racking waiting for the results. I took the exam the day before Thanksgiving (which was awesome since the testing center is an hour away normally) and it took until today to get the results.
Now that the first exam is out of the way, I can start worrying about the lab portion. I’ve got a few weeks before I can take the exam, as not all the testing centers can offer the lab portion, so I’ll have to wait until my center has the exam ready. But when it does I’ll be there taking that beta exam and praying for the best.
If you are planning on taking the MCM exams when they come out, obviously I can’t tell you what is on the exam (you have to pinky swear not to tell before you can take it) but I will tell you it is by far the hardest Microsoft Exam I’ve taken. Even harder I think than the Business Intelligence exams which were very tough.
I’m off to start studying for the lab, which will be tough as I have no idea what is going to be covered, or what I’ll be asked to do.
