  • I gave and cleared the 70/511 certification exam yesterday. My advice -

    * If you study the self placed book and are scoring well in its practice exams - that is kind off misleading as in my opinion, questions in actual exam required a lot more hands-on experience/knowledge. I have been working on WPF for last couple of years and it really helped in some of the real life scenarios based ques.

    * Whenever you give practice exam, there is a section called "Leaning Path/Plan" on the results page which has msdn links on all areas where you need to learn more. Paying heed to that really helped in the exam as I was able to spend time on right areas. 

    * Before giving the exam, I'd advise going through at least 1 set of sample questions by those 3rd party ones. I didnt buy anything and I'm NOT a supporter of dumps, but I just picked up a demo sample paper for 70-511 like below and that was helpful enough to get the better sense of what to expect in the exam.


    Hope it helps..

  • CageSpear,

              Even I used the MS training kit and got pretty marks in practise tests. Failed big time in the actual exam. Can you please suggest some more suggestive materials for the exam.  having minimal experience in WPF I find it really hard in Resources, UserControls and Control Templates.

  • Thanks for your tips, cagespear1. I relied solely on that MS book and their practice test software. I got 90% with their test software, but failed the actual exam.

    I never clicked the Learning Plan links. I will do from now on.

    Thanks for that link at the end. :)

  • How would one suggest to prepare for this test when you are not familiar with the .Net at all?? I program in Delphi, are they similar? Would the Self pace book on Amazon help or should I look into a Beginning course?? Any ideas would be much appreciated, kinda given a very short time period to complete.
