Right now Imam a bit frustrated I am studying for Microsoft certification. The coursework includes lab with c# and python code. One of the objectives of exam is to be PROFICIENT in C# and Python. This is to understand what the program is doing. When I ask any instructor they about coding proficiency they - brush off my concern - say that instructor doesn’t design the exam - says whether you get 700 or 1000 out of 1000 you are certified I think this is all bulls4it. sorry for strong words, I’m kinda frustrated. Instructors only want you to pass, not learn the material. Few months back an IL posted about how hard it is to get job because schooling in India teaches you how to pass the exam, it does not teach you to learn and understand the material. It was programming, I think. Here are my concerns: - I want to truly study and LEARN the material so it can help me move forward (right now I work with oldies (some are gold, most are mold) and want to move to job, position with young whipper snappers. Like-minded young whipper snappers. - I wish to study in-depth, but am concerned I am spending PRECIOUS TIME AND RESOURCES on material beyond the exam And there is one module in the exam that is relatively new to the exam, which even the Instructors don’t have a grasp on. I’m hoping to have a decent understanding before my next scheduled class. I’ve been trying to grasp this module for almost 2 months (1 module of 12) Fortunately my job pays for unlimited online training, but we got to take our Personal time to do it (I try to spread the same live online training every 4 to 6 weeks) This is not just a vent. Can you give some viable ideas?
