MCTS ADO.NET 3.5 Applications results out and passed

A good way to start a day. Just got an email regarding another latest addition to my cert list. Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist : .NET Framework 3.5 ADO.NET Applications [more]

The exam I took for this was 71-561 and when going live would become 70-561.

I was excited to come up with a new logo but when I added all MCTS certifications, I got this error: Maximum Lines Exceeded – Please Remove a Certification. 

So had to settle for an all MCTS 3.5 logo 🙂

I actually did not expect much from this exam due to my unfamiliarity with Synchronization Services. But I'm guessing the rest of the beta takers had the same difficulties 🙂


The training kit for 70-442 TS: Designing and Optimizing and Data Access for SQL 2005 also helped for this exam and it's a good read if not a must read for developers involved in Data Access with ADO.NET
