I just certified brainbench in sql server 2005 programming and asp.net\n2.0 Today. An recruiter requested that I take the those two and\nVB.NET. I passed both exams easily just on working knowledge.\n\nHowever, looking that the outline for vb.net, I think I'm going to be\nin trouble. Seems real heavy in OOP and I anticipate lots things I\njust don't store in my head. When it comes to vb.net, i have a huge\npersonal library of scripts that seem to cover most everything Ive\nbeen doing for the last 3 years so I find myself mostly slapping code\ntogether.\n\nAny suggestions on how might be able to prep for it? Also, FYI, I've\ngot zero work on Winforms and Remoting. And I'm pretty sure my style\nof debugging is not textbook. One observation about Certs (and I'm\nalso MCAD), If you are a solid developer with numerious application\ndeveloped under your belt in the technology, it's no guarantee you\nwill easily certify without hitting the books. However, the mere\neffort to certify after real world experience can be a real eye opener\nto technology you thought you really knew . I am proof you can build\nreal great systems by virtue of experimenting and prototyping alone.\n\nBrainBench gives you 3 minutes a question. Which might not seem like a\nlot, but I can usually find my answer online in 1 minute. Usually you\ncan discount multiple wrong answers by searching for them. A few times\nI found the answer with less than 10 seconds to go. I do like the\nbrainbench format. Given the items below, where would be a good place\nwhere I could enter something like "Garbage Collection" and expect to\nsee all the critical English that if I were brainbench I would want to\nsource my question from. I would imagine MSDN, but many of their\nquestions that seem official in nature did not come from those pages.\n\nHere's the outline:\n\nNumber of questions = 40\nApproximate completion time = 50.0 minutes\nTest Type\nKnowledge and Skills\nTest Outline\n\nClasses/Inheritance\n Class Access Modifiers\n Constructors/Finalizers\n Garbage Collection\n Inheritance\n Interfaces\n Polymorphism\n Static vs. Instance Members\n\n\nConsuming Resources\n COM Interop\n Global Assembly Cache\n Threading\n Using .NET Components\n Using Web Services\n Windows Native Calls\n\nData Access\n ADO Providers\n Data Adapter\n Data Binding Controls\n Data Command\n Data View\n SQL Server Access\n XML Access\n\n\n\nDebugging\n Command Window\n Configuring Debugging\n Correcting Errors\n Setting Watches\n Tools\n Tracing\n\nDistributed Applications\n Asynchronous Calls to Remote Components\n Distributed Deployment Methods\n Security\n\n\n\nLanguage Fundamentals\n Arrays, Collections, and Enumerations\n Assemblies\n Comparison\n Error Handling\n Functions\n Loops and Branching\n Operators and Operator Overloading\n Properties\n Scope\n Types and Type Conversion\n\nWeb Forms\n DataBinding\n Dynamic Controls\n HTML Controls\n Intrinsic Objects\n Web Controls\n\n\nWindows Forms\n Controls\n Dialogs\n Dynamic Controls\n\n\nThanks for any help or information.
