    No .Net experience.

    Tonnes of diagrammatic questions where you have to re-arrange
    stuff on the screen, put stuff into ordered lists, like data
    flows and er-diagrams.

    All I used for study was a bit from MSDN on the Microsoft Solutions
    Framework, and the Transcender tests.

    Easy stuff people!

    Oh, and I didn't get a grade, the testing program just said I passed.

    Congratulatons,now all exams about Microsoft don't show
    you grade. I think this exam is a little diffcult. Two
    months ago, I was failed. I tried it again three weeks ago,
    then I passed. Now I become a MCSD.NET

    Congrats - I passed it on my first time go also.

    I think the test is a lot easier for experienced devs. A
    few years of project experience helps a lot.

    However - I wouldn't make a blanket statement about it
    being too easy - the test is a .NET exam - however the
    focus is really about msft best practives, requirements
    gathering, and being able to create a solid app design on
    the msft platform.

    I assume you've been developing for quite some time
    (especially since you stated no .NET xp)

    Does Transcender Exam (70-300) help? How many case
    studies? Does it look like 70-100 exam (the old MCSD one)?

    Yes, Transcender is worth the investment.

    3 Case studies - two chunky ones, one smaller.

    It is very similar to 70-100, in content and feel.

    There is quite a bit of reading for the big case studies,
    I found myself referring back a lot to the case when
    answering questions. I recommend you read the case quite
    lightly first time, then look at the questions, don't bother
    trying to take it all in on the first reading.

    I just passed the 70-100 last week and got my MCSD
    certification. I've seen the advertisement about the free
    exam voucher for 70-300, but I figured I couldn't be
    ready for the test fast enough (deadline at the end of

    However, reading through this thread makes me think maybe
    I could pass 70-300 fairly quickly, especially since I'm
    in that "mode".

    I've got some experience with ASP.NET and ADO.NET. What
    do you think?

    You should give it a try, after all it's free with the
    voucher and even if you don't pass, you'd have an idea of
    what the exam looks like!
