Where do I learn for MTA certification? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I want to study for MTA-developer certification but I don't have any courses in my area. It means that I can't now get the certification? Is there any websites that teach the subject? What options do I have?

  • Please understand that there is no one course that will teach everything that is included in a Microsoft certification exam. Sometimes, there are courses that cover some or many of the topics, but these courses are not designed to prepare you to pass an exam. Rather, they designed to teach you about the topic.

    It is up to us as test takers to use various resources (books, websites, classes, etc.) to look up and learn about every topic listed in the "Skills Measured" section of an exam's description.

    Good luck!

  • Sorry - I was going to respond to your other request. I was busy.

    First off, you need to have access to the tools. Because you are student, you should have free access to the latest tools via DreamSpark. See if your school is participating in it: https://www.dreamspark.com/student/

    If this is a problem, you can always use the free "express" developer tools from Microsoft. Scroll down to the free Express editions, intended for students and hobbyists: http://www.visualstudio.com/en-us/downloads

    Learn how to program on a variety of free training sites such as:

    These should get you started.

    Good luck!

  • Hello Roman Blum.

    First of all, read carefully the exam web page on the Microsoft Learning web site: every page lists the measured skills and useful resources for studying. Wiley publishes a set of books that can be useful for the MTA certification: you can find more informations at http://www.wiley.com/college/sc/mta/.
    Another useful resource is the Born To Learn Training and Certification Community page at http://borntolearn.mslearn.net/.
    Anyway, remember that experience too is another important requirement for MTA certification.

    Best wishes for your certification exams!

    Bye.
