Exam 70-536 training material RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    We have started the preparations for getting my staff up to MCPD level, but first we need to do the MCTS certifications. I see that all MTCS certifications require exam 70-536: TS: Microsoft .NET Framework, Application Development Foundation.


    When I look at the Microsoft Learning web site for this exam, I find some preparation materials like;

    MCTS Self-Paced Training Kit (Exam 70-536): Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 Foundation

     

    1)      I findit a bit strange that the training material is for the old .NET v2, considering that we are now at .NET v3.5 and v4 is soon to be released. Is there no materials and books for the .NET v3.5 framework?

    2)      Following this link, I found a book from 2006, based on the Visual Studio 2005 technology. If this is the required self training kit, where in Sri Lanka can this book be required from?

  • Hi Stein Inge

    70-536 is a version agnostic exam meaning that it is used for both 2.0 and 3.5. The reason for this is because that the 2.0 and 3.5 framework run on the same version of the CLR and that is where is this exam is most focussed.

    They removed the 2.0 from the name.

    The standard MCTS training kit can be ordered from Amazon, I dont know if they deliver to your region. But most online book retailers will have that book
