  • I used the official Microsoft training kit for exam 70-536 and I think it's pretty good. It covers all the material that is required to pass the exam but just reading the book is not enough. You have to study the book. Take your time, write code, analyze code samples and read the documentation on MSDN for the various API's that are discussed.

    Preparing for the exam may take up to two months, but it's worth it. You'll learn a lot of new things that are worth knowing about the .NET platform.

  • The Microsoft Press book is the only "book" that I know of for preparing for this exam.  Some of the practice test vendors have study guides that are available as well.  I have used the MS Press book to lead a couple of study groups with teams at work.  I would agree that overall it is a pretty good book and will, if you really take the time to study the book, help you to prepare for taking the test.

    Be sure to check out the Learning and Certification site for information on the exam (http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/exam.aspx?ID=70-536&locale=en-us).  Here you can reveiew the skills that are being measured in the exam and see the recommended preparation materials which includes both instructor led training and online learning (and you can save 25% on the elearning courses through the end of May 2010).

    Also, be sure to dig into the information on MSDN (http://msdn.microsoft.com) and be sure to build sample applications to test anything that you have questions about.

    Finally be sure to check the special offers pages from the Learning and Certification site (http://www.microsoft.com/learning), rigtht now there is an offer for Second Shot where you can, for free, re-take an exam if you do not pass on your first try (but you must register first!).
