.NET Framework 3.5 Exams

In this post and all subsequent ones related to this topic, I’ll try to unveil the secrets of passing new generation (3.5) .NET developer exams …

Again, there are three separate paths (tracks) for getting the all-mighty MCPD (ex-MCSD) credential:

MCPD: Windows Developer 3.5
MCPD: ASP.NET Developer 3.5
MCPD: Enterprise Applications Developer 3.5

There are lots of materials to study, plenty of new exams to pass. The exam vital for all MCTS and MCPD titles is one 2.0 exam (which fortunatelly I already solved):

70-536: TS: Microsoft .NET Framework – Application Development Foundation (shortly, 2.0 Framework exam)

Regardly which track you take, you should pass this fellow first.

Here are the list of MCTS certifications on Visual Studio 2008:

70-502: TS: Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5, Windows Presentation Foundation Applications
70-503: TS: Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5, Windows Communication Foundation Application Development
70-504: TS: Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5, Windows Workflow Foundation Application Development
70-505: TS: Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5, Windows Forms Application Development
70-561: TS: Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5, ADO.NET Application Development
70-562: TS: Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5, ASP.NET Application Development

And here are the list of related (3.5) MCPD certifications:

70-563: PRO: Designing and Developing Windows Applications Using Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5
(requires 70-536 and 70-505)
70-564: PRO: Designing and Developing ASP.NET Applications Using Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5
(requires 70-536 and 70-562)
70-565: PRO: Designing and Developing Enterprise Applications Using Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5
(requires 70-536, 70-503, 70-505, 70-561, and 70-562) (coming soon)

This time, I plan to pass all three tracks, one by one.
I’ll keep you informed about my progress…

(added later…)

My impressions about passed exams could be found in one on the next posts (I hope)…
