I am now a Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist!

Let me start by saying, I have never taken a Microsoft exam previously. I was having a "Microsoft Exams 100% Discount Coupon" which was valid till 31-Dec-2006 so thought of utilizing it.

I prepared well for 70-431 Microsoft SQL Server 2005 - Implementation and Maintenance paper and today morning at 10.45 AM I took up the online test @ NIIT Adyar. I am glad that I have cleared it with a good score of 982 (out of 1000). Now I am a "Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist" :)

There were 52 questions and out of which approximately 15 where simulation questions (that was where I spent most of my time). Though the score might look big, I need to accept that I answered 20 to 30% 0f questions without much of confidence. Hope the choices I made where accidently correct :)

I was bit tensed in the morning till the time I answered the first question. Reason being, couple of my friends know that I am going to take up the test today. I was afraid what would they think if I fail in this exam :) I am happy I have proved to myself that one can pass a MS exam even without dumps :)
