  • None of the current developer certifications are suitable for beginners or someone with a basic understanding of .Net. Most require at least 1-2yrs of hands-on-experience (by hands-on I mean working with .Net on a daily basis, not reading books or playing around with a few labs/examples). This doesn't mean that you won't be able to get certified, it just means it may take you a little longer than you expect :-)

    Please review the information on the below link to ascertain what type of developer certification you're interested in. Once you've made a decision, we'll be able to provide some guidance on what's required and what online tutorials available.

  • No you are not required to get the equivalent .Net 4.5 certification when it expires.

    Although exams expire, current certifications don’t.  You will still be certified in 70-515: TS: Web Applications Development with Microsoft .NET Framework 4 even when the exam expires.

  • Thanks a lot.

    I am planning to do Exam 70-515: TS: Web Applications Development with Microsoft .NET Framework 4.  In the site this exam is scheduled to retire on July 31, 2013. Do I need to do recertification with latest  version once it is expired and also whether I am eligible to do this certifcation because it is stated that two to three years of experiencec is required. Your suggestion will help me to decide correctly and also please share online course that will help me to prepare for the certification.

    Thanks in Advance

    Bhsiva.

  • There are not pre-requisites for this exam despite that exam stating you should have 2-3yrs of experience. You can sit the exam even if you have no experience however you probably wouldn't pass :-).

    Preparation materials are listed at http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/exam.aspx?id=70-515#tab3
