    Hi faisal, I noticed that 70-315 has alot of questions, I wouldnt
    say the exam is hard, its more tricky than hard, for example when you have to
    choose from 4 code samples, they all look alike, you have examin each one in
    deatil. Also, if you dont know the answer to a particular answer, sometimes
    its easy to rule the answers that are not correct, leaving you to choose from
    2 out of 4, using elementry.

    I failed 70-315 the 1st time, the 2nd time I took it I found alot easier
    than the 1st time, this could be bcos I revised more or that I got a easier
    sample of questions.

    The 1st time I took the exam many of the questions were choosing from long
    samples of code, the 2nd time the exam consitsed of short multiple choice
    answers and not so many long code samples.

    I assumed it was so we could all laugh at him thinking that one exam
    would get him a job. Oh dear....

    I should start applying for junior developer roles, or wait until I get mcad
    and mcsd.

    I applied for positions while on the path to MCAD with little results. I was
    hired two weeks after I recieved my MCAD. This is a testament to the value of
    a premier certification from Microsoft.

    Thanks for ur reply codejunky22.

    I've seen some jobs advertising that were asking for applicants with mcp,
    mcad or mcsd and about 2 years experience. I've talked to some other people
    and they have said the same thing as you, that it would be better to wait
    until I have mcad.

    In your job role as a developer what are the most comman tasks that you do,
    is it mostly stuff? and when I start applying for developer roles,
    what kind of interview questions/test do you think will I come up against.

    Working as a developer, generally you need to know all technologies not just
    ADO.NET. Often most consultancies use the Enterprise Library from Microsoft
    which really render most indepth knowledge of native ADO.NET obsolete.
    Enterprise Library is not part of the MCAD/MCSD programme, btw.

    You will find your future employer will be testing your knowledge on whether
    you can come up with solutions to problems. Always remember to use
    technology based on the customers requirements, not for technologies sake.
    You will be suprised how many companies out there use technology for
    technologies sake, rather than thinking about the best solution.

    My efforts have for the most part been focused on converting a VERY large
    website from ASP 3.0 to ASP.NET. Yes, there is alot of database access.
    That's impossble to answer without knowing what position the interview is for.

    I wish you well in your ambitions. I'm taking 70-300 Friday, wish me luck!
