Exam 50-711 preparation RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am going to prepare for the MCTS 50-711 exam. What are the best resources? I know and does anyone have some experience with either of these. I would like to prepare without taking place in a preparation class. Can I expect to find the actual questions they will ask me during exam in this packages. What about the book "MCTS Self-Paced Training Kit (Exam 70-511): Microsoft® .NET Framework 4, Windows® Applications Development". Maybe there are more resources? Does anyone have experience with some online course as preparation for 70-511?

    Thanks for any suggestions!

  • No you should not expect to find the actual questions in the MCTS Self-Paced Training Kit. This would defeat the purpose of having an exam as you'd already know the answers!

  • Is the Sel-Paced Training Kit enough as preparation or do i really need to visit the class room.

  • I am programming C# since about 2 or 3 years. I am programming with WPF a little bit less.

    My main experience was in areas like:

    - WPF (wrote some applications, with styling, databinding, etc.; inherit the treeview to support multiselect, 90% success; wrote a propertygrid like in vs2010; wrote attached properties, used validation, commands, converter, icons, basic layout transformations, wrote a markupextension, use mvvm every day,  etc.)

    - Windows Forms: not so much experience. Worte some applications. Databinding with Designer. Nothing special.

    I am using WPF daily.
