Milestone : MCPD Exam Cleared

Hi, all my blog readers. first of all Happy New year to you and may this year adds more passion in you towards your profession!

After clearing MCTS – Web before few months. Today, i would like to share one great news with you all. I’ve cleared MCPD – Web (70-547) exam on 28/12/2009 with 975/1000 Marks🙂

MCPD _ Web_Large

Thanks to all who wished me luck and boosted me up on my last achievement!

Journey towards this certification was too good and too challenging too. let me tell you challenging how it was!

Challenge to complete Book : I purchase the hard copy of book on 10/7/09[Price – 640 from Ask InfoTech Vadodara]. Now I’ve aimed to give exam on 26/10/2009. But as usual was heavily loaded with my stuff at office and the book is more theoretical. So, it needs more inputs and concentration compared to Practical stuff. In between i stopped reading then in start of November i come to know about Certification offer from Microsoft[25% Discount]. Which stimulated me bit and moreover I’ve thought to complete the MCPD certification before end of 2009. So, deadline was coming near and near(And as human nature as exam date comes near and near we start reading with full concentration🙂 and same hold true for me too!].

Challenge to give exam : You must be thinking how the giving exam could be a challenging task? Yeap, It was because in my city(Vadodara,Gujarat) one prometric is there which was down from last since months due to some technical reasons. So, now I’ve started looking at another options. And finally i found HCL Career Development Center – Ahmadabad and Thanks a lot to Asha ma’m[She manages prometric exams at this center] who helped me a lot during this process over the call only which saved my time. So, i booked my exam with 25% offer (1800 INR).

Challenge to Maintain one Transcript: I already had a MCP ID. But after clearing this exam i come to know that i will get new MCP ID and my MCPD Certificate will be in different Transcript..Hooh!! But finally i managed to get it done by calling at Regional Service Center

Now, finally when i see my certificate and logo. I feel good about fruitful result of completing this many challenges🙂

Again Thanks and Happy Reading!

    Did you find the exam difficult? I mean I know what your score was but how did you progress through it. I’ve got it in a week or two and wondering if prepared. Developing asp.net for 3 yrs and read the training kit about 5 times… but not that much recently..

      It’s not that much difficult.

      Reading MS Press Book and having couple of years experience helped me in clearing exam.

      Thanks,
      Kiran Patil

    Question: I am a .Net developer with 12 years experience and I have zero SharePoint experience. However, I want to focus on one plateform. There is such a demand for SharePoint that I think if I complete all SharePoint labs, as well as other study course that I could make the leap. Does anyone have any thoughts on my potential career change?

    Crazy Question:

    I am a .NET developer who builds web apps and I’m thinking of learning SharePoint 2010 and change my career to SharPOint development. Why? Because web development is widely focused and I never seem to be an expert in any one technology. There’s just too much to learn. At least with SharePoint I can use my existing C# and database skills in one platform.

    My question is this: Is it a good career move to focus on one platform such as SharePoint. I sure hope you say yes.
