Over the last two days I sat exams 70-331 and 70-332 (Core and Advanced Solutions of SharePoint 2013). Along with my MCSA for Windows Server 2012 (exams 70-410, 70-411 and 70-412) I am now an MCSE for SharePoint 2013! Yay me!
I’ve finally created some practice tests of my own.
I’ve built an exam of 40 questions in a similar style to those from Microsoft 70-573 “TS: Microsoft SharePoint 2010, Application Development”.
These are brand new questions. Not pirated. Not copied. Not stolen.
Are you taking Microsoft Certified Professional exams with Prometric between now and 30 June 2011? Then you should consider buying a discount multi-pack of exam vouchers from Microsoft – the "Microsoft Certification Exam Pack" from Prometric. If you’re only going to sit one exam, you can pay 15% on top of the usual exam price and have a second shot at the exam – should you need it – for free. If you’re sitting exams as part of a course at a training partner testing centre, then it is likely they will have second shot vouchers ready for you as part of the deal.
The 70-668 has been out a month, and I’ve only just got round to taking it. When I sat the 70-667 beta, Microsoft gave me the MCITP Administrator certification as well by mistake… A bit of googling showed me that this was a known bug in their certification database and they’d taking it away again by 1st of September from any MCPs who hadn’t really sat 70-668.
I’ve just read a really thought-provoking blog post from Patrick Sledz (@patman2520) on Microsoft’s approach to bringing SharePoint to market.
SharePoint Comes of Age
It strikes me that SharePoint is a product that’s taken a while to mature, but mature it certainly has. The several first iterations of the technology stack didn’t really have very much in the way of targeted Developer or IT Pro learning.
