Well, it has been a bit again since my last post.  But, I thought I would start out with what I thought was a nice surprise.

In January I took the time to go and take the Beta exams for WSS 3.0 and MOSS 2007 Application Development.  I got to the exam and started it up and quickly found out that the test was on the API of the SharePoint object model.  I had expected more of a test integrating applications or creating solutions with SharePoint.  Now don't get me wrong, I had previously used the OM on another project, but not for 2007.  I had figured that since it was a beta, it would be good practice and that I would continue taking the test. 

Afterward, I didn't really feel that I did that good and totally expected that I blew the test since it had been so long since I had seen the object model and also actually "Coded" for SharePoint. 

A couple of weeks ago, I found out that I Passed both exams.  I guess it goes to show you that it is like riding a bike, once you get deep in to something you really don't forget it.  Also, I would have to add that the OM is pretty intuitive comparitivly to other products I have used, so I am sure that was a huge part of me being able to pass the exams.
