MCTS certification

I have been quiet lately with blog posts and that's because I didn't have time to write. I prepared for my MCTS Sql Server 2008 Database Development certification, plus I was very busy on my job.

In a previous post regarding new year's resolutions, the first thing on my list was this certification planned for February and I am very happy to announce that I passed the exam (70-433) pretty easily with a good score in my opinion (925/1000). I didn't buy any Microsoft training kit or practice tests, the study method was based solely on Books Online.

As Microsoft says, to provide others with official verification of my certification achievements:
1)use the online transcript link
2)use Transcript ID (890519) and the Access Code (ionuthrubaru)
It should provide you my exam transcript.

About the questions, I think they put too much accent on XML and Full Text. The first questions were XML only, at which point I thought there is no way I would pass if they keep going like this. I noticed other having the same issue, for example Brent Ozar who noticed the same XML emphasis.

I will come back now at my usual 1-2 posts a week.
