I took and passed the Microsoft 70-561 exam today and how have the “MCTS: .NET Framework 3.5 ADO.NET Applications” certification.
This exam was incredibly hard, and I didn’t obliterate like I did to the previous two. A score of 700 was required to pass and I picked up a 768.
The study book for the ADO exam wasn’t really all that good — it was far too sparse and left out too much information. It was only about 450 pages or so and should have been around 700 to really cover the material.
