very good advice becuase I started with just a cert book, tried to do the
questions and thought I was going to explode. Only after getting many more
books is the whole thing starting to make sense.

I know they said they made the .net exams harder then in the past but I
gotta say this stuff is like studying for the Bar exam or medical school.
Greenies like me should either plan for an infinite time table or just punt
on even trying. I would quit myself had I not already invested a huge amount
of time.

I made a 511 on my first test, I am studying all 3 exams at the same time
and feel I could make a 511 on each of them...but getting to 700 I feel from
taking these practice exams which pull questions from mars that I got a long
way to go.

What book talks about doing ' TODO: comment in code so comments will show up
in the task list? a question on one of my practice exams
