Edmund Zhao's BizTalk abc We share, We learn

I passed the exam 74-135 yesterday. It was really tough, might be one of the most difficult exams provided by Microsoft. The reason I took this exam was because my company wanted to join BizTalk 2006 Jump Start program, and one of the requirements to participate the program was at least having a consultant passed 74-135. I spent almost a month to prepare for the exam, and finally passed it with all sectional results marked as “Strong”.

If you are also going to take the exam, here are some background information and tips for your preparation.

Exam: 74-135
Name: Developing E-Business Solutions Using Microsoft BizTalk Server 2004 
Questions: 40
Time: 130 minutes
Passing score: 700 out of 1000

1. If you are very family with BizTalk 2004 and have few year experiences, you don't have to worry too much, I'm sure you will pass it. However, I would still suggest you spend few weeks to prepare for it, mainly to fill some gaps between your hands-on experiences and the exam required knowledge, because they will ask you all kinds of questions, even the almost retired HWS!
2. If you are new to BizTalk 2004 or only did some MOC or few simple BizTalk projects so far, I would suggest you to fully prepare for it before you go take the exam. Please refer to my blog on Nov 29, 2005 to see all the resources you could use for preparation. There is no way to pass this exam without a very good understanding of BizTalk 2004!
3. Practice, practice and practice. Like others mentioned in their blogs after they took the exam, lots of practicing always help.
