This is sort of a delayed post but its better late than never right? In March I got to attend MCM SharePoint R2 rotation in Seattle Washington along with I guess 16 other SharePoint peeps mostly internal full time MS employees and a handful of partners and MVP’s. There has been couple of really good posts on MCM experience by Spence, Maurice, and others so I’m not going to repeat some of the things you may have already heard, hopefully this post will give you some additional perspective.
Things you should do before you start your MCM training
During the training
I haven’t passed MCM yet, but I’m confident I will soon. If I were to do it all over again I would probably spend more time reading through pre-read, like I said I was in the middle of project with 3hr commute everyday, was just too much for me to have any kind of time to go through all the pre-read, had to work my behind off 3 weeks I was there. Also I would read the QUAL lab instructions bit more thoroughly I ended up working on wrong farm and lost lot of time troubleshooting, there is just way too much stuff to do so you can’t waste any time troubleshooting
Lastly my congrats to all 6 that passed first try, I know it is not a walk in the park, so I tip my hat off to them and my best wishes to future candidates and there is no better feeling to do it first shot.
I’m now MCM for SharePoint 2007

Good luck Ram, both with your running and the last step to MCM.
