Does MCPD Web Developer 4 + MCTS Silverlight 4 = MCPD Silverlight 4 ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've just passed the Upgrade exam 70-523 (from 3.5 EAD) which now states that I am MCPD Web Developer.

    I also previously passed the 70-506 (silverlight) exam does this now mean I am MCPD Silverlight 4 also? 

    (because for some reason the MCPD Silverlight 4 still requires that I take the Pro Web 70-519 exam -which is already included in the MCPD upgrade 70-523 exam)

     

    The MCPD Silverlight 4 certification is listed here (at the bottom of page) ... http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/certification/mcpd.aspx#tab2

  • thanks for your reply.

    I did check my transcript and for some reason even though you do the 70-523 exam -it still says you need to do the 70-519 for the MCPD Silverlight 4 certification.

  • Ok, I had in mind you will get it automatically, but it seems that you don't get a PRO exam when upgrading.

  • I have spoke to Microsoft about this and they are looking into fixing it so that the Silverlight 4 MCPD certification is added also.

    I will post a link to this forum to them so that they can provide a status update.

  • Norsten, Have you got the Silverlight 4 MCPD certification added to your transcript? 

    Anyways I have a question with a difference case. I am also a MCPD Web developer 4. I passed all 4 papers of the track 

    70-515
    70-513
    70-516
    and 
    MCPD requirement: 70-519

    Now if I do Silverlight exam 70-506, Would I automatically be MCPD Silverlight Web Developer 4?
