Passed the CLD exam (part 1)

Last summer I finally decided to take the CLD exam. Other things interfered, and it took a while to decide when I'd have time to prep for the test and take it. But I finally took it early in February - that's the main reason I didn't post anything on this blog in January.

I just found out I passed. I was pretty sure I did well, but it was nice to get the confirmation. I'm very busy until after the weekend, but I hope to post about the experience in more detail in the next week or so (hence the "part 1" title). In particular, I'll discuss preparations and the actual test experience.

Congratulations. I've been considering taking the CLD exam myself. Given my experience, I don't expect it to be difficult. However, I do need to get around to taking the time out to practice with their examples.

My follow-up posts will talk about what I did to practice for the test. For me, the hardest part was getting things done within the 4 hour time limit.
