MCM Prep - Sliding the test

If you can’t cram enough for the test, what’s the thing to do? Slide the test. I realized last night that I was scheduled for this Friday, but I’m nowhere near prepared. Not that I’ll be totally prepared, but I’d like to be well prepared in my mind and I haven’t gotten through all modules.

I did XML last night, and realized I’m a little lost. The CLR I did today made sense, but I decided to give myself more time. So I moved it to late February, after vacation, where I think I’ll do some prep as well with all the flights and laying around the pool time. It will be good to keep the mind moving while I’m in the Bahamas.

No sense in rushing it.  Good luck.

Not a terrible idea.  Be ready.  And letting it simmer a bit is never a bad idea.

The Dev tracks are pretty intense.. One thing I picked up from the XML module it's quite beneficial to have an index on it.
