Path to MCPD Windows Phone RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm currently a MCPD EntAppDev 3.5 and thinking about taking the PD on Windows Phone.

    I figured to first take the 70-523 exam to upgrade to MCPD Web Developer 4, to avoid the lame 70-516 (Data access) exam. Or will I still need to get that one? 

    To shorten my question will 70-523 (upgrade to Web developer) + 70-506 (silverlight 4) + 70-599 (PRO designing phone applications) earn me the MCPD Windows Phone certification?

    Is it possible to just take the PRO exam directly or is it mandatory to first complete the pre reqs? I know that won't earn the MCPD Windows Phone, but it's actually enough on my CV.

  • Hi,

    like I understand from the Microsoft site - http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/exam.aspx?ID=70-523 - you will also get the 'MCTS: .NET Framework 4, Data Access'.

    When you pass Exam 70-523: Upgrade: Transition your MCPD .NET Framework 3.5 Web Developer Skills to MCPD .NET Framework 4 Web Developer, you complete the requirements for the following certification(s):

    MCTS: .NET Framework 4, Web Applications
    MCTS: .NET Framework 4, Service Communication Applications
    MCTS: .NET Framework 4, Data Access
    MCPD: Web Developer 4
    So there shouldn't be a problem to get the MCPD Windows Phone (without the need to take 70-516).
