70-536 exam

I am treading into a dev group which for me is strange territory. However I
am somewhat familiar with the Partner Program, having now helped two
companies go Gold in the last year.

1. You need 120 points to be a Gold Certified Partner, not 100.
2. Unfortunately on the MCP points individuals now max out at three points
each, ergo you can have every cert in the book and you get three points
only.
3. You must have two MCPs (MCTS qualifies too) to become a Certified
Partner. For most of the specializations you may need multiple MCPs with
senior certs (Advanced Network Infrastructure, for example, requires two
MCSEs.)

Good luck!

Hi,
I will be appearing for exam 70-536 in next 2 weeks. So any important thing to note while appearing for the exam. What's the time period of the test? Is it sufficient or need to work on timing also? Difficulty level as I am new to this (Micorsoft) technology?
Thanks in advance.
Bye
