Holiday Studying…

January 1, 2008

I have decided to migrate to wordpress from In my opinion it’s layout is more logical and I feel that the wysiwyg is a bit more coder friendly. By that I mean you can copy paste code snippets into the code tab and not have as much html kung fu to do to keep the formatting from getting messed up.

Okay so now the real reason for this blog post. Today I have started my 1 week of holiday studying to get my MCTS: Technology Specialist: .NET Framework 2.0 Web Applications

I am 2 days late when looking at my personal project plan for my holidays. I should have started on sunday but I didn’t factor in enough slack and the schedule blew out a bit.

So anyway I was clicking through the previously mentioned link to try and purchase a book to study when something caught my eye… “Exam Insurance”. What? Exam Insurance? Hmm, sounds interesting. After some reading I find out that for some bizzare reason microsoft (for a limited time only) is giving people a free second try to their exams OR if you pass, 25% off your next exam! For FREE!!! I don’t know why but it’s true.

Here’s the link. I think the important thing here is to not let your self get into a mental trap by saying “If I fail I can try again, so it’s okay.” No, it’s not okay! Study hard and get it the first time so that you can get 25% off the next exam! That is the mental thinking I’m going to keep while studying for this exam.
