Dead Subjects in Exam 70-523 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've been reading the 'Skills Measured' list for exam 70-523 and there seems to be subjects covered that didn't make it into .NET 4 or don't work with .NET 4?

    So far I've found:

    • Javascript debugging (lots of people discussing that this is broken in VS2010)
    • ASP.NET AJAX Control Toolkit (lots of people reviewing this toolkit as out-of-date, unreliable and not working with .NET 4)
    • Client-side templating (this was in a preview, but didn't make the release)

     Can someone confirm if topics have been dropped from exams 70-523 and 70-515?  As what I have read suggests these subjects are non-functional or dead.

    Cheers,
    Adrian

  • Hi Adrian,

    Read the skills measured and decide for yourself.

    I do not think Javascript debugging is included or AJAX Control Toolkit and cannot see them in the skills required.

  • Cheers,

    The skills required list on 70-515 seems much more up to date than the list on the 70-523.  So I'll be using the skills required list from each individual exam and will be disregarding the 70-523 one.

    Thanks again,
    Adrian
