Where to start for Asp.Net 4 MS Certification RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am planning for Asp.Net Microsoft certification exam in few months. I have 3+ years of experience working on C# asp.net on visual studio 2008 and hands on experience on using visual studio 2010. I was wondering If I should sit for Asp.Net 4.0 or 3.5. And where should I start for the exam

    Also, What is the recommended book that would help to prepare for the certification?

    Really appreciate your suggestions.

    It's better to aim for version 4.0. The exams for version 3.5 will be retired next July, so you don't have that much time to complete them.

    If you wish to get a certification on asp.net 4.0, I suggest that you take exam 70-515, which will give you the certification "MCTS: .NET Framework 4, Web Applications." This is the link to the exam description page:

    http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/exam.aspx?ID=70-515

    Note that the page contains a section on preparation materials. The Microsoft Press book listed there will help you prepare for the exam.

    Alternatively, you may consider pursuing a newer certification (4.5):
