70-515 and MVC RRS feed

Answers

  • This is a great resource to learn MVC and web forms.

    http://www.asp.net/mvc

    I started with the foundations section to get a better understanding of what MVC is.

    Pro ASP.NET MVC Framework by APress was an ok book.

  • I second that first recommendation. I learned MVC by following the tutorials at http://www.asp.net/mvc and then creating myself a couple of sample applications. After that, I didn't have any trouble answering the questions on MVC in 70-515.

  • I am also thinking of taking this exam. I got the Exam Kit for 70-562 also. I am confused with which parts to go on and which to skip; as you have taken the exam can you give me a little brief about which to go for?

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

  • You must prepare for all the topics listed in the "Skills Measured" list.

    Most exams are adaptive. That means you'll be asked a really hard question on a particular topic. If you get the question right, you move straight on to another hard question on a different topic. So in an adaptive exam, if you are right on top of your game, you can walk out of the exam room after maybe fifteen minutes with a very high mark. Get a question wrong, and you'll be asked an easier question on the same topic, worth less marks. Adaptive exams pick away at your weaknesses, to try and measure the level of understanding you do have. If you are unprepared in any one topic, you will get more questions on that area compared to the others.

    So don't skip any of the topics that are mentioned on the "Skills Measured" list for the exam. If you do, that might be enough for you to miss out on your certification.

  • Ok to correct the previous poster, these exams are NOT adpative.

    They used to be way back in the MCSE NT 3.51 days but now are based on a standard question pool with a certain amount chosen from this pool when you start the exam.

    They include a certain weighting on questions, which means you might get less on one topic than others.

    Included in the notes for the exam is the following

    Note This preparation guide is subject to change at any time without prior notice and at the sole discretion of Microsoft. Microsoft exams might include adaptive testing technology and simulation items. Microsoft does not identify the format in which exams are presented. Please use this preparation guide to prepare for the exam, regardless of its format.

    And this is on the bottom of all exam pages as a boilerplate notice to cover themselves

    I haven't taken the test yet but I am feeling much more confident than previously and hope to take the test soon. After making the original post I had a lot of information to study. Do make sure that you are referencing the list of skills on the test information site. You will not find information on the 70-562 book on JQuery or MVC. Most everything in the 70-562 book is useful.
