Digineer continues to be a leading Microsoft partner for BizTalk Server in the Twin Cities area. As of this writing, we are proud to have six consultants who have passed exam 70-235, and several like myself who also completed the 2004 certification exam. We are active in the Twin Cities BizTalk Server User Group and regularly provide content for the BizTalk Hotrod e-mag.
Since I have been so behind on my blog this year, I’m writing this in November but I passed the 70-235 exam in June (!). Passing is 700 with 50 questions total. I was pleased to walk away with an 842, despite the diabolical BAM questions they always throw in.
I think the exam was quite good as certification exams go. It covered many aspects of the product and in order to pass you will have to spend hands-on time with the product. There was quite a bit of BAM and BRE, some poorly written questions, but pretty much as expected overall. There was a question on BRE FactRetrievers that I wasn’t expecting, but otherwise, no code-focused questions.
The question types are a lot of “choose X of Y”, some straight choose-one multiple choice and some “choose the necessary steps from a list and put them in the right order.”
