70-505 Study Guide Mistakes? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I’m hoping to take Exam 70-505: TS: Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5, Windows Forms Application Development in a few weeks but there a couple of things that are puzzling me about the study guide at http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/exams/70-505.aspx:

    1.       Firstly the exam still seems to be in development even though we are well past the publish date (10-Feb). Does this mean I can’t take the exam yet?

    2.       There are 2 items in the guide that seem to be related to WPF:

    a.       Change the appearance of a UI element by using triggers. This objective may include but is not limited to: using multiple triggers; using property triggers; using event triggers; using data triggers

    b.      Install a Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) browser application by using ClickOnce

    Is this a mistake or are these topics really in the Windows Forms exam?

  • Hi Carl,

    I think there may be a question on WPF in 70-505 in relation to WPF controls within windows forms and also clickonce as you point out is still in the guide.  I would not worry too much there are not going to be many questions on this, if you know your windows stuff you should be fine.  http://blogs.msdn.com/gerryo is the man in charge if you want to get a definitive answer.

    You can book the exam through prometric now, it is definitely live.

    Good Luck,
