About MCPD and MCSD RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

     

    I want to get the new MCSD: web apps certificate. I passed the 70-480 javascript & HTML5 exam. Is it better to complete MCSD exams track directly(70-486 &70-487) or to certify MCPD: web developer 4 first then take the 70-492 upgrade exam? I knew that MCPD will expire on 31-7-2013 then I knew that it will not expire, and also I can't find a valid dump for the 70-492 upgrade exam.

    Can anyone please tell me the best option whether to complete MCSD track or to take MCPD then upgrade? and when will MCPD be retired?

    Another question please, if MCPD is retired, can I still take the 70-492 upgrade exam even after retirement?

     

    Many thx in advance,

    Mona Fathy

  • Hi,

    The upgrade exam should expire at the same time as the other exams.

  • Hi,

    Please note that only Microsoft approved exam preperation tests are valid, all other dumps and question sites are not valid and you cannot ask for any recommendations here on dumps other then the official approved preperation tests like MeasureUp.

    The MCPD certification is based on Visual Studio 2010 and will not get updated anymore. The new MCSD certification will be based on Visual Studio 2012 so this certification will be the standard for the next few years.
