Certification Exams: From the Other Side


Today I took the 70-464 beta exam today "Developing Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Databases" and after spending the last few months as an item writer for two other SQL 2012 exams, my perspective on the experience is different.  Having taken numerous SQL 2000, 2005 and 2008 exams, this was my first exam with the benefit of my experience as an item writer.

I obviously can't talk about specifics regarding the exams, and I'll say even less than I'm allowed.

The following are lessons I learned from the experience of being on the item writing team for a certification exam.  I believe these lessons can apply to any technology, for any level of certification exam.
