MCSD Analyzing Requirements and Defining .NET Solution Architectures Exam Cram 2 (Exam 70-300) helps you pass the 70-300 exam, which is a core exam in the MCSD .NET track and measures the ability to analyze requirements and define Microsoft .NET solution architectures. This exam is extremely tricky, widely considered the most difficult of any MCSD exams because of its emphasis on case studies as well as its demand that candidates have at least two years of hands-on experience. This book is not intended to teach new material. Instead, it assumes that you have a solid foundation of knowledge but could use a refresher on important concepts, as well as a guide to exam topics and objectives. The book features test-taking strategies, time-saving study tips, and a special Cram Sheet that includes tips, acronyms, and memory joggers not available anywhere else! The Cram Sheet is especially useful for last-minute review before the test begins.
