  • I also took the 70-480 exam and moving towards the 70-486 (MVC) and 70-487 (Azure), this is the web development path by MS as far as I know.

    This is the source I have for you:

  • What reference book you think is good for 70-480?

    In the old days there are exams for ASP.NET but now looks nothing about that?

  • For the 70-480 I used a lot of web ressources like W3C, MDN and MSDN.

    This exam is based on HTML5, JavaScript and CSS3, as you can see in the "Skills measured" section: http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en-us/exam-70-480.aspx.

    You do not have to know anything ASP.NET specific.

    As a quick reference I used this Training guide: Training Guide on Amazon

    I also found the articles from http://www.bloggedbychris.com quite helpful and used it as a check list.

    For what I know you should search for MVC4 instead of ASP.NET. This is the main framework in the 70-486 exam.

    But to be honest I did not start learning for this exam right now, because of my work.
