Exam 70-536 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am a newbie to this forum and have some basic doubts regarding certification exams, i would really appreciate your guidance regarding the same.

    First of all I want to know, is it not possible to take 70-562 exam straight away without passing 70-536?

    2. How many attempts one can make once he/she gets registered for an exam like 70-536?

    3. I have VS 2008 and .Net Framework 3.5 installed in my system. And if its required to clear 70-536 to be able to take any other MCTS cert exams then, is it possible for me to do my preparation without having to change back to VS 2005 & .Net Framework 2.0?

    Thanks in advance

  • 1. It possible. But you not get certification without passing 70-536

    2. Now one registration is one attempt. If you don't pass exam then you register on exam again

    3. It's enough

  • Just as addition to the good answer you got already:

    You should prepare with Visual Studio 2008 and .Net Framework 3.5. All exams (70-536 and 70-562) are targeting to that version. But be carefull: There are 2 Self-Paced Training Kit Books available for the 70-536. You need the newer Second Edition! The older one (first edition) is targeting VS 2005. (I think the first edition appeared (*) in 2006 and the second edition in 2008.)

    (*) I have no idea, if "appeared" is the correct word. It is a 1:1 translation from german which could be wrong and hard to understand. Ment is the date, a book is printed.

    With kind regards,

  • Thanks a lot both of you for clearing my doubts.

    One more doubt!..Please do clarify this also if possible..

    If i clear 70-562 first i know from you that i'll not get certification. But will they provide any other type of certificate that can be shown with my profile? Does 70-562 alone carry any weightage?

  • You should get access to the MCP site where you have your transcript which will show the 70-562 exam and the logo builder should give you access to the MCP logo (For your business card and/or email signature).
