Book for MCSD: Exam 70-484 - Essentials of Developing Windows Metro style Apps using C# RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I recently passed the 70-483 exam (without a book being available).  I was hoping to move straight on to 70-484 but I realise I probably wont get lucky twice.  I have scoured the web and can't find any mention of when the book might be released.  Anybody got any ideas?

  • The Microsoft training guide for this exam is not due for release until the middle of 2013.  I am also not aware of any other books scheduled for release on this topic.

    What I'd suggest doing is using the Skills Measured section of the exam and the contents covered in Course 20484A: Essentials of Developing Windows Store Apps Using C# to research content via MSDN online and the internet.

  • hi

    Im also looking for books or online courses for 484 exam, have you had any lock finding study materials for it yet?

    Im currently studing for the 483 exam and there is no official books out for that one either. But I found Pro Csharp 5 and the NET 4.5 Framework and that on seems to cover most of that in the 483 exam. So Im wondering if there are some book or books that cover most of the thing you need to know for the 484 exam?
