After postponing the exam for so many months, I've decided to finally take the 70-301 Managing, Organizing, and Delivering IT Projects by Using Microsoft Solutions Framework 3.0 exam.  Being that I have a background in process and CMMI, I found this exam not to be too hard, but more of common sense when it comes to the project management and risk management areas.
I found the best way to pass is to study the following areas:
  • Foundation Principles of MSF (Open communication, shared vision, empowerment, responsibility, etc)
  • Understanding the MSF Team Model and the responsibilities of each (Program Management, Development, Product Management, Test, User Experience, Release Management)
  • The process model and the milestones for each (Envisioning, Planning, Developing, Stabilizing, Deploying)
  • The trade-off triangle of resources, schedule and features
  • Understanding risk management, how to mitigate risk and creating risk contingencies

I scored a 775 using the white papers provided by Microsoft about the MSF 3.0.  The link is available here:

As for the future, I'm pretty undecided on whether to upgrade my 70-215 to 70-290 or concentrate more on getting the new Microsoft Framework 2.0 MCPD exams.  Thoughts?
