  • These exams are very different; you can't say that one is "better" than the other.

    70-511 will test your ability to develop desktop applications (basically WPF) with Visual Studio 2010. It grants you a "Technology Specialist" certification. It is in the path to get the MCPD certification, which would require 3 additional exams.

    70-483 tests your ability to write generic C# code, as well as using some Framework libraries such as Data Access or data validation. It is based on Visual Studio 2012, so it is newer than 70-511. It gives you a "C# Specialist" certification. It is in the path to the MCSD certification (newer than MCPD) for Windows Store Apps (versus 70-511 which is devoted to WPF apps). The MCSD would require 2 additional exams after the 70-483.

  • Hi Alberto,

    Very thanks for given info.

    As per given info by you and some research I will supposed to do C#Specialist certification.

    Can you also suggest me it would be better to do C# specialist (70483) certification instead of MCTS (70511) now for future perspective because I have not done any MS certification as yet?
