Today, I took the Microsoft SharePoint exam “Microsoft SharePoint 2010, Configuring” (70-667), and managed to pass it within 20 minutes (50 questions) with a passing score of 950.
I’m definitely not someone with lots of SharePoint administration experience, I never managed a server on my own except for my own virtual machines, so I didn’t quite know how well I’d do in this exam. As you can see, my knowledge was really enough to pass easily.
As for my preparation, I did it mostly with two things:
- Reading MCTS Self-Paced Training Kit (Exam 70-667): Configuring Microsoft SharePoint 2010 (Training Kits) by Dan Holme and Alistair Matthews, and going through most of the practice examples (skipped a lot which I’ve already done before and felt proficient enough)
- Practising a lot in my own SharePoint 2010 virtual machine. What I didn’t know or had never done before, I did in here. As I already did the SharePoint 2007 exams (70-631 and 70-630), there was already a lot of content that I already knew as I had practised it back then. Other things (mostly the newer stuff such as service applications, for example) I had a closer look at to be more or less well prepared (didn’t know how much this exam would different from the 2007 versions)
