Help regarding MCTS.. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello!

    im in a little bit confusion..

    few days back(1 month) i decided to take Microsoft certification and i consulted one .Net developer and he is MCPD

    he suggested me that..as i dont have any certifications

    i have to start with MCTS, to get this i need to write 2 papers

    70-536 - for Framework (this is compulsory) and 

    i can choose 1 from 2 papers(web or windows) i think 70-562 / 70-563

    i have prepared for 70-536 and ready to write the exam and now got struck with some of the posts like 70-536 is out date as it is of framework 2.0

    what should i do know?? 

     

    Thanks in advance!

  • Hi,

    the 70-536 is for the Visual Studio 2005 and 2008 exams. And passing this exam will not give you a MCTS certificate.

    So I would suggest to start with the 70-515 (.Net 4 ASP.Net exam) instead of the 70-562 one.

    (And don't be bothered that you learned the content for 70-536 - it is also usefull. But I wouldn't take that exam any longer.)

    With kind regards,

    Konrad

    Yes, you would be. The next step should be to complete the MCPD requirements. For more informations have a look at the following site - http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/certification/mcpd.aspx#tab2

    You should know by yourself, If you're eligible for this exam. The guidelines on the specific MCTS sites will show you, what will be expected to fullfill the exam.
