Passed 70-461

I had a friend that noted Microsoft was offering a second shot offer on their exams through May 31. I've been meaning to take a couple this year and update my certifications, but haven't scheduled anything. There hasn't been a lot of time to study, so I've been hesitant to study. With the second shot, however, I decided to just go for it. On the phone Wednesday, I looked and saw I could schedule an exam today, so I did it.

I went at lunch and took the 70-461 cold. No studying the last few days, just hoping I know enough. I'd think that I should be able to pass it and I could. I got a 785/1000, which passed me. There weren't many things I wasn't sure of, though I'm sure I missed something I thought I knew. I made a few notes when I got in the car, and I have 4-5 things to look up and write about.

However I was slightly annoyed as well. I know I took 761 and 762 as beta exams (along with 764) and I'm sure I passed them. Of course I'm sure I don't have paperwork, so I'll need to write them again, as my British friends say. Not a big deal, but slightly annoying. I've been wanting to study for 763 and take that, so this is the impetus to get me moving slightly.

I also think that I should have taken 763 today. 761 was too easy and I should have taken advantage of the second shot on that one.

Oh well. still moving forward.
