  • Hi Priyank,
     

    If you are using Visual Studio my suggestion is that go for Revised Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist (MCTS) for .Net Framework 4 / VS 2010


    If your are a Windows developer go for 70-511 Exam or if you are web developer go for 70-515

    You no need to take up the lengthy 70-536 (for .Net 2.0) since this exam is no longer prerequisite for MCTS

  • thanks a lot sir..

  • I never checked the first one. Both was for the same exam (that was changed a little over time of course).

    You should make sure, that all topics of the exam are handled in the book. And you should make sure, that you really play around with the technology.

    If you want, you can give me a list of chapters or so and I check if any major thing was changed (e.g. replacing one chapter with a complete new one or something like that. I don't know this .Net Framework 2.0 book so maybe it has a chapter about .Net Remoting that I know from the MCSD/MCAD books and is not in the second edition book).

    The 3.0 and 3.5 Frameworks based on the 2.0 Framework so the basics should be the same. Only new technologies came (e.g. WPF, WCF, ...) and these are not part of this basic exams.

    But of course: There MUST be changes that are that big, that Tony Northrup / MSPress decided that an errata is not enough and a 2nd edition book is required.

  • Ok, if you found some chapters of the 1st edition: It should be ok. If you ever think about buying a book: get the 2nd edition.

    I think it is more important to really play around with the technologie explained in there. So it should be ok to use the 1st edition or the PDF of it (I think you found something like that, because all the Self-Paced training kits came with a CD that contained the book sin electronic format. The MCAD/MCSD books still used a CHM format instead of PDF but that was changed quite long in the past).

    I wrote it multiple times already: I really like the self paced training kits just to learn. Stuff is not just explained - you always have some praxis after each chapter where you do a small program or something like that. So you can really play around and get deeper into the technology explained.

    With kind regards,

    Konrad
