  • Contrary to the old exam 70-536, which versed on version 2.0 of the Framework, there are no new exams that explicitly test only your knowledge of newer versions of the Framework. Instead, there is a whole series of exams that deal with "higher-level" technologies (such as Web applications or Windows Store applications). These exams require knowledge of the Framework. However, they are not explicitly a test of your knowledge about the Framework itself, but rather about things that you build on top of the Framework.

    One exam that you may consider is 70-483, "Programming in C#". Despite its title, it deals more with the Framework than with the C# language itself. For instance, it covers topics such as "creating and using types" or "managing multithreading" or "managing assemblies", which are essentially testing your knowledge of the Framework.

    Take a look at the page on Visual Studio Certifications, which links the various exams that might be realted to the subject of software development under the Framework 4.5:

  • You have probably only looked at the certifications marked as "MCPD", which are based on 4.0 and they will be retired (but they do not expire) in December.

    Instead, you should look at the "MCSD" certifications. Those are based on 4.5 and will be updated as new versions of the Framework become available. Contrary to the MCPD certifications, these ones do expire and need to be renewed every two or three years.

  • I have gone through http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en-us/visual-studio-certification.aspx link but I din't find anything regarding .Net framework 4.5. Everything was related to framework 4.0. I don't want to take the exam for 4.0 as it is going to expire in december,2014.

    It seems Microsoft hasn't come yet with certification exam for .Net framework 4.5.
