Well, I've put in for my first certification exam on Monday, and I must admit I'm nervous. Why? Well, first of all, Microsoft Certifications are designed to be difficult. (Partially because they cost a whopping $125 to take... theoretically, the Department of Vocational Rehabilitation is picking up the tab for me, but still, ouch.) I know if I made a business out of selling my test to people, I'd have good reason to want to make sure they have to retake it unless they're really, really good.
So this weekend, I'm probably going to spend a lot of time studying, and studying, and studying - looking for various different ways to study the same thing, and trying to make very certain that I know my stuff. It's not particularly comforting to hear that most people fail their first certification exam.
Here's hoping things go well, and that I actually know what I need to know.
