MCPD Web Developer 4.0 Certification RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have question regarding the MCPD Web Developer 4.0 certification.

    I have recently cleared MCTS 70-515. So for further certification I am planning to appear for MCTS 70-513 (i.e. WCF using 4.0).

    And I wanted to know that for appearing in MCPD 70-519, do we need to clear all 3 MCTS certifications (i.e. 515, 513 and 516)? Or any of the above will do?

    Another thing if we clear 515, 513 and 516, do we need to again appear for 4th certification (i.e. 519) or clearing 3 certifications lets us to clear 519 automatically?

    Thanks,

    Chirag Vidani

    You don't need to pass ANY exam before sitting 70-519. The MCPD certification requires FOUR exams, but these four exams can be taken in any order; there is no requirement for passing one or more of the MCTS exams before taking the PRO exam (but the PRO exam by itself will not give you any certification until you pass the other three exams).

    You seem to think that 70-519 behaves in the same way as the "upgrade" exams, where one exam replaces several other previous exams. This is not the case. It is a completely independent exam, and it is required if you want to acquire the MCPD.

    To recap: The MCPD requires passing four exams. The four exams can be taken in any order; none of then is a prerequisite for another one. But you do not get your MCPD until all four are complete.

  • Hi Chirag,

    yes you need to get all 3 MCTS exams (513, 515, 516) before. After that you need to pass 70-519 to get the MCPD.
