Will there be Training Kits for MCPD .NET 2.0 to .NET 3.5 upgrade paths ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I was wondering if Training Kits would be published for the MCPD upgrade paths, or if I should consider acquiring the relevant .NET 3.5 MCTS/MCPD Training Kits ?

    It's quite hard to find info on what MS Press plans to release (or maybe I did not manage to find where to look :D. Maybe the fact that the corresponding exams have yet to be released does not help...

    Thanks,

  • Per the link below all upgrade exams are in development so looking for exam prep material for an exam in development is not practical.  All these exams are based on development skills so find good .NET 3.5 books in your area of practice or interest and just write code.  When the exams are out you just need to cover gaps of knowledge while you prepare for those exams.

  • The available exams comes with books recommended for each exam so you can check those at your local book store and choose the ones you want to buy.  Check below and click on each exam for the study guide which you can use with MSDN docs and the recommended books.

  • Thanks for your answer.

    I understand that not many training resources are available today, but I was wondering if there was some kind of habit about publishing (or not) upgrade training books for MS certs ?
