  • I am not sure if a teenager can understand this material because even adults gets confused, I have covered the .NET 3.5 exams in the thread below and there are seven exams for .Net 2.0, one exam 70-536 is requred and you can choose the others base on what platform you use for development, Asp.net, WPF(Windows presentation foundation), WCF(Windows Communication foundation), WWF(Windows Workflow foundation) and ADO.NET.

  • That makes it easy so check the thread below the two books I am recommending are written by people who still writes VC++ books because both are C based languages expert.  These two books with good practice test will help you pass the required exam which is 70-536 and since you don't know Asp.net then you must also pass exam 70-526 for the Winform MCTS certification.   I have not taken that exam because I am Asp.net developer.
