Aloha,

I've taken 70-305,70-306,70-229 so far.

I've tried 70-310 twice. I am using Sybex and
Transcender... I'm thinking of taking 70-300 then re-take
70-310 after. Is 70-300 easier then 70-310 ? PLease
share...

Aloha Chief

I think 70-300 is quite different. It is more ambiguous to answer than all
exams you have passed. Because I take the exams when Microsoft disclose the
score, I cannot compare which is easier. I suggest you pass 70-310 before
70-300. You need overall concepts for 70-300.

Hi,

The 310 is infact tougher that 70-300 as per my
experience. I found 70-300 abosulutely stupid. I mean any
tom-dick and harry can pass this exam. The quality of
exam 70-100 for the earlier track was much better. I
suggest you still attempt 310 before 70-300. Leave the
simpler part for the last. go through the offical
curriculam and MSDN references thoroughly for 10 days. I
am sure you will get thru in 310.

Beleive me 70300 is a piece of cake.

Cheers and Best of Luck

It's not been a piece of cake based on the number of posts of people who've
failed it...

It's straight forward if you've been doing analysis for sometime, but some
folks aren't that talented at "listening", or in the case of the exam,
reading.

I agree 100%;, the 70-100 was harder. Although, the 70-100 had a lot of
database questions, that to me, seemed out of place on the exam. 70-300
seemed more accurate in measuring the skills of someone who is doing
analysis.

Just my $.02...

In that case they have no business taking the exam.

The biggest problems with software development occur early on in the
development process, often by people who don't know how to 'listen',
or rather, understand the business problem at hand. These problems are
amplified as the development process continues, until someone is brave
enough to stay 'what the hell are we doing?', and the project gets
canned.

Understanding the problem is half the battle. The other half is completing
the design that satisfies the problem before you cut the code.

More than 1/2 the battle.

If you don't understand the problem, no matter what design is chosen,
the result will be a failure. The question that needs to be
continually asked during the development process is 'Are we building
the right system?' and not just 'Are we building the system right?'

I'm impressed. That one knocked me out of my chair. Thanks for the point.
You should write about this stuff.
