So this morning I finally passed the exam. I completed the test in 20 minutes even though they give you 120 minutes. The first time I ran out of time because I had to keep re-reading the questions over and over. These tests are designed to test how well you prepared for the exam, not necessarily your day to day programming skills.
So what's next, well the DBA exam. I'll begin studying for that next.
The "Administering Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Database 70-462" may be my weak spot.
These exams give you something to shoot for and at the end of the process you get a certification from Microsoft, which will benefit your career and help your employer earn Microsoft Partner Status.
