70-562 vs 70-536 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I want to take 1 exam for the "MCTS: .NET Framework 3.5 Windows Communication Foundation Applications" and I want to take the easier test since this is my first exam.  

    It seems that 70-536 covers a lot more ground and would be more difficult to pass.  Can someone give me some advice on which exam will be easier to study for an pass?

    Thanks

    Go for Exam 70-513: you no need to write 70-536 for getting MCTS

  • ... however, be aware that 70-513 does require knowledge of the new features in the Framework 4.0. If you prefer to stay on version 3.5, you can take 70-503 which may be esaier for you if you are experienced with this version (for instance, it doesn't require knowing about RESTful services). If you decide to go this way and you want to become an MCTS, you will also need to take 70-536 (about the Framework 2.0), but this can be done later, it is not a prerequisite for taking 70-503.

  • Hi

    It is obligatory to pass 70-536 .net core before the 70-503 wcf. So you have to concentrate on the first one and forget about the second for the moment.

    Here is some guides to help you get hand wet on 70-356
