    Took me 4 weeks to build confidence for my 70-316
    Then 10 days for 70-315, 10 days for 70-320, 10 days for 70-229
    Took me 10 days for 70-300 and I failed, then retake it 1 week later and
    pass. Gruu Gruu
    Here is my suggestion for any recently graduate and entry level like me.
    Before taking any MCSD .NET exams, read the following books, they are very
    - C# How to program [Deitel]
    - Professional C#
    Then, go ahead purchase all MCAD training guide books (from QUE) written by
    Amit Kalani. What suprised me was that those C# series look exactly like VB
    ..NET series (which I also owned) I don't know why :).
    Before you even read 70-229 training guide from QUE, please read
    Professional SQL Server 2000 Programming. It is very helpful. 70-229
    training guide is quite brief. Don't even underestimate 70-229 exam. The
    whole name of this exam is "SQL Design and Implementation". SQL
    Implementation is so easy that any programmer can master it at the speed of
    light :). Yet, the term "Design" will hunt you down if you aren't careful.
    Alot of things in Design phase are worthy to learn and to be prepare for
    70-300 exam.
    My nightmare is when doing 70-300. Since material in this exam is very much
    similar to a Software Engineering course in my CS degree, I thought that it
    would be kind of easy. Yet, this thought failed me at the first attempt of
    taking this exam. This exam requirez you a good memory and note taking for
    the information that you read. BTW, before taking this exam, here is a list
    of good books that I suggest you to read:
    - Code Complete
    - RAID Development
    - Project Mangement on Track from Start to Finish
    - 70-300 Exam Cram
    Too bad I can't remember the book which I studied for my course of Software
    Engineer. Yet, the books above are helpful enough.
    Well, now I can relax for one whole week then take another 2 exams to
    complete MCDBA and 1 exam from CompTIA for Project+. Damn, I hope that I can
    have enough time study my GMAT. Wish me luck guys...
