  • The 70-515 is the "TS" exam. It will give you the MCTS certification.

    The 70-519 is the "PRO" exam. Although you can take it any time after it becomes available, it will not give you the MCPD certification until you have also passed the 70-515, as well as 70-513 and 70-516.

  • Ok they are not the same exam

    There are fundamental differences between MCPD and MCTS exams. MCTS exams focus on the how as in they give you piece of code and ask how you do something. For example, how do you create nested masterpages or configure a WCF service in the web.config file of an ASP.NET application.

    The MCPD is more focused on the why. Which one of the following authentication methods would you use in this scenerio, which of the following controls provides the most appropriate functionality for this situation. Its more about do you understand why you use parts of the framework rather than how to use them.

    And for the MCPD Web Developer, 70-519,70-515 are both required (along with 2 other exams), you need the MCTS as well to get the MCPD certification.

  • thanks for the information i was wondering how come its allowing me to take the 70-562 exam directly without taking 70-536 ,so the answer is this even if i pass it i need to take this to get the cert.but if i pass the 70-536 first will i be given any certification or logo as to that i have passed the mcts application development or else the cert and mcts logo will be given only after i pass the next exam like 70-562

    one more ques i see in some sites the 70-515 book has become available is it true

    thanks
