Follow up 70-511 RRS feed

  • Question

  • A few years ago, in 2011, 2012, I have worked with WPF and read the exam Training Kit for 70-502 and later 70-511. I never had the time to do the exam though, I just never got to it. Now the exam 70-511 is being retired in a few weeks. I want to do some exam, to proof my knowledge. The job market and the project market is getting thougher. It does not has to be WPF, I also have loads of experience in ASP.NET, Winforms. Nevertheless I cannot see any new exam that has more or less the topics I saw for 70-502 and 70-511.

    If you already have the knowledge of the 70-511 exam, what new exam can you do, or what new exam could fit you with a few extra study hours?

  • Hey Marc,

    There is one test that I found on the subject and is valid and could be used for upgrading the qualification if you wish.
    70-486 Developing ASP.NET MVC 4 Web Applications (you can see Skills measured what you need for the exam).

    In addition if you want to upgrade your qualification to MCSD: Web Applications look through another two tests only (70-480 & 70-487). 
    I attached you a link to your review in accreditation and other details.

    Regarding your question regarding a short time of learning (a few hours) for test success, it depends on your learning abilities and your existing knowledge. 
    I would recommend to go through the issues that every examination and test your knowledge anyway, probably should devote more than a few hours, your test is successful.

    Please Mark This As Answer if it helps to solve the issue

  • Thank you very much. But your links gives me a : We are sorry, the page you requested cannot be found.

    To add some information: I think I cannot do the old WPF/Winforms exam before the end of this month, since I did not work with wpf for over a year. Also I am not looking for upgrading, since I never passed the old exam. I am not really looking for qualification to MCSD or titles like that, just an exam to show that I have the knowledge. I was thinking of doing 70-483 myselfs, seems pretty general.

  • The links work fine in Chrome and I'm not sure why they don't work in Internet Explorer. I always get the error you provided when trying to access the learning website using IE.

  • I am using QupZilla on Bodhi Linux actually. :-)

    I can google for it myself, it is not the problem. But is there not some exam I can do that involves more WPF knowlegde? I could not find it, I think it is a little annoying that they change the certfications every few years. I know they should upgrade, but then the old exam, should have a clear successor. And that I cannot find. 

    Thanks for all your advice though.
