  • Smitabk,

     

    First of all you can go for .NET 4.0 certifications instead of 3.5 which you may need to upgrade at some point of time. So why not go for 4.0 instead of 3.5. Besides in 4.0, you need to pass only one exam comparing to 3.5 where you need to finish the pre-req 70-536

     

    Preparation materials: Since you dont have much experience, I would recommend you to first get asp .net 4.0 books, study, practise and then use the microsoft self-training kit which would complement the info you learnt in asp .net book. So studyi/practising just microsoft training kit may not be enough,

     

    Good lcuk

  • Hi,

    You tell us that you are a novice in certification that's not a problem. Are you a novice at programming as well because 70-536 is a tough exam. There is a lot to learn and is nothing an exam to take lightly. Take a look here for the exam overview: http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/exam.aspx?ID=70-536&locale=en-us#tab3 and i must say that the MCTS Self-paced training kit mentioned in the preparation materials helped me a lot. Personally i followed some Instructor Led classes as well because i think you need a lot of hands on experience on .Net

    Will it be helpfull applying for jobs? that might vary by region. You should always remember that you certify for yourself and not for a job. If a job requires it you should be driven to try to pass for that exam because you like the technology. So if you want to start make sure you have a pc where you can do a lot of hands on training. The training kit will have some excerises to do so start with those. Furthermore look for other forums where you can post questions about .Net (Visual Studio forum would be a good one) and start asking questions there as well.

    Be persistant. If you don't succeed the first time try again.

    Need more info regarding the certification and exams ask here and there will be plenty of people willing to answer your questions.
