  • Anyone can sit a Microsoft exam.  Whether you pass an exam depends on your experience.

    Generally speaking, you will need 1-2yrs experience (by experience I mean working with the technologies covered by the various exams which make up the MCPD certification on a day-to-day basis in an employment/contracting/consulting scenario, not just study or doing labs/examples) to pass the exams of the MCPD certification.  That said, some people have been able to pass the exams by only studying.

  • Sorry but my doubt still remains.....
    i am still studying and the word "developers" has been used oftenly in official site....

    So to be precise would that be advisable for students...

    i assume that students can conduct it.i am asking would that be "advisable"?
