Dos and Don'ts duringrepparttar 109352 exam and while preparing for it

Dynamic control creation is important to know. Microsoft is focusing more on user-driven content than static content with .NET. Make sure you understand how to create .NET satellite assemblies and localized components. A portion of this has to do with what operating system name and version you have, but there are specific steps you can take to package and deploy your application properly. Focus your data studies on what works optimally with SQL Server.

Brush up on stored procedures if you're a little rusty. Understandrepparttar 109353 different types of SQL Server authentication as well asrepparttar 109354 different types of authentication offered by Windows operating systems. Sure you can pick out code errors when given examples. Specifically, know how to resolve looping errors, import errors, and general syntax errors.

Make sure you understand Windows Installer technology and how it relates to applications written in Visual Studio .NET. If you're not a developer who's focused on enterprise-based applications, you may not have a lot of exposure to localization and globalization of software. This is one area where Microsoft believes a certified developer should have a significant background.

Make sure you understand how security works in .NET. Understand which accounts have privileges to run which sections of code. Although it may be a little bit of work, studyrepparttar 109355 .NET policy extensions and how they fit intorepparttar 109356 operating systems your company is running. We must not forget legacy environments.

Make sure you brush up on ActiveX controls from Visual Studio 6.0. Know how to instantiaterepparttar 109357 control and work with it inrepparttar 109358 new environment. It is especially important to understand how legacy components interact withrepparttar 109359 .NET development environment.

Learn how to userepparttar 109360 DataSet object to generate XML and vice versa. You should know how to create schemas and validaterepparttar 109361 data, as well as create strongly typed datasets. Overall, you are expected to have a thorough understanding of XML as in .NET to succeed in MCSD 70-316 exam. Conclusion With Microsoft targeting all its future applications on .NET and companies adoptingrepparttar 109362 Microsoft new initiative, it is quite obvious that .NET is going to pave its way forrepparttar 109363 future and will be Microsoft's weapon for its future vision. .NET is a major leap of Microsoft with intranet in mind.

Encourage Personality Testing

Written by Kate Hufstetler

Continued from page 1

What kinds are there?

There are many online and offline personality tests. One can just do a local search on Google to explore your options. Three I like, have experience with, and recommend include:

Myers-Briggs Personality Tests: based on Carl Jung's theories yet made understandable to us regular people-- this test comes from a view that there are 4 main ways people differ in thinking and interacting. These 4 areas can than be combined for a total of 16 personality types.

The Enneagram Psychospiritual Typology: this tests breaks down personalities into 9 general categories withrepparttar understanding that there are many sub-types and differing distinctions possible.

The Max Luscher Color Test: (Warning: although tempting-- This is NOT a novelty test-- NEVER use it as such!!!) Dr. Luscher believed that colors carry deep psyco-emotional responses when viewed. Based on order preference for 8 colors a tremendous amount of information can be given about a person's current state.

Where Can we get them?

Many coaches, therapists, pastors, counselors have access to and certifications (when needed) to administer these tests. There are also online versions of these tests for quick general typing that can be helpful.

I recommend takingrepparttar 109337 test in conjunction with someone else who will go over it with you.

If you do choose to go it alone and take a simplified version online, be aware as you readrepparttar 109338 results that it was only deciphering who you are and how you are most likely to respond at that given point in time. Utilize results always with an outlook on how you can better inter-relate to other people.

If you would like to talk more about some of these tests -- Feel free to contact me. Until next time--- allrepparttar 109339 best, Kate
