  • As far as I know there is no planned release date and I never heared that such a book is in work. (I was hopeing that such a book will be released one day, but now I am quite sure, that it will never come. I expect that the authors will directly make the MCPD books for Visual Studio 2010 instead - but that is just soem kind of guessing.)

    With kind regards,

  • Any suggestions as what to do now? Go do MCTS for .NET 4.0 and then upgrade to MCPD 4.0 and then later do MCPD 3.5?

  • Hi,

    I would consider two options:

    a) You can simpyl look for the requirements, maybe get some practice tests (Selftestsoftware.com has a 70-564 test if I remember correctly) and simply do the test.

    b) Simply start over with the 4.0 exams. But then I would no longer even think about the old 3.5 exams and completly concentrate on the 4.0 ones (and afterwards are enough other things a developer could do e.g. SQL Server 2008 Database Developer or things like that.).

    What to do is something, that you have to decide. In a situation like you, I decided to switch to the new exams.

    With kind regards,

    Konrad
