Just Passed 70-515!
That’s right, Dot Net Dawson is now Dot Net Dawson, MCTS. Boo ya!
My preparation was a bit dubious… I bought the Measure Up practice exams, but there weren’t many questions and they were all easy. I “memorized” them in about an hour of studying (the questions are about what I do everyday, so I knew 90% of the answers already) then promptly signed up for the test.
I was really surprised. I breezed through the test, a fifth of which was jQuery related questions, and half of which were practically straight off the Measure Up practice exams. Almost all of the questions tested good, relevant practices that I use in my every day programming life. I didn’t have to know random junk that someone back in the 90’s used and probably won’t use again unless they’re working on a legacy system.
Moral of the story? The Measure Up exam is well worth it.

I also read through Niall Merrigan’s summary posts of MSDN and various articles pertaining to the exam:
Best of luck!
