Sitting for my first Microsoft exam on February 2nd: the 70-680. Sometimes I wonder why I’m doing these exams. Is it to learn more? Sure. Is it to “better myself as a person and contribute to society?” Yeah, why not; we’ll throw that in there too. But I’m sitting here, finishing the prep for yet another certification exam I can’t help but get a bit introspective and question my own motives. Is it money? Skill? Bragging rights? Hell, I don’t know. Yes, no, who cares? I’m half-convinced that I’m doing this just to prove to myself and everyone else that I can.
Update 3/11/13: I wanted to update here that I did, in fact, pass this exam. It was substantially harder than any of the CompTIA exams.
