MCSD, here I come

I overestimate certifications – especially when I see them in big bold colorful letters on peoples’ resumes. I’ve been thinking of MS certification for the last few years, but never set aside the time to study and take the 5 exams. For some reason, I browsed to the MS certification site on friday night, came across the test registration link, and registered to take 70-315 (web applications in C#) exam on sunday. The instant I hit submit after entering the credit card info, I hit the escape button to cancel, but the damage was done and I received an email almost instantaneously confirming my test time.

Now for the good news – I passed. Without reading a single book. Without doing a single sample test. After spending Saturday night in a bar in Pasadena. After watching Star Wars Episode 3 on HBO till an hour before the exam.
