Yay, passed another Microsoft Exam today, almost a year since I sat my last Microsoft Exam. Today I passed 70-631 Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 Configuring.
It is an interesting exam, partly because it covers such a broad base, and partly because it was a great reminder for me as to what is included in the “free” download.
The exam itself is a broad brush affair, with bits on dns setup, network load balancing, ISA Server, MOM, basically the stuff in the exam outline is covered – so go read it up.
I got a pretty good score, which I put down to project work earlier in the year. I had a couple of decent sized projects involving Network Load Balancing on an Intranet, and another for an extranet-only site. This got me hands on with ISA, NLB, Alternate Access Mappings and all that.
To prepare I used on the job experience, Transcender test exam preparation and I built a couple of networks with WSS 3.0 in Virtual PC at work and at home.
