So I finally nailed this thing! I got the 70-528 back in January.

How I did it....
I used the MS Press book for the 70-536 (isbn: 0-7356-2277-9 ). I studied for about 3 months, reading the book 3 times. I took MANY practice tests with the software provided by the book. it should be noted that I've written several smaller programs and have professionally worked in c# over the last 15 months.

This was a tough exam in the sense that the questions are often bloated (keeps from memorization) as are the answers. There were many questions related to collections, application domains, application security, serialization, and application configuration settings -- the things you may not be most familiar with. Not very many easy questions like what's the range for int, uint, etc, like you might find in the scjp/scja.

Anyways, that's probably not too informative, but I wanted a place to post my pass anyhow. So I'm now MCTS in web-dev 2.0!!!

ho, ho, ho
