Which exam should I take post MCTS 70 515 & 433? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have got certified in 70 515 (4.0 Web applications) and 70 433 ( SS2k8 Database Development ). We basically design Business Applications hence i have to take these two.

    Which exam would be a better choice for me to take up next?

All replies

  • I would suggest to go for the MCPD next. So the ADO.Net and WCF exams would be next.

    You find all details at http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/certification/cert-vstudio.aspx#tab2.

    (So 70-516 and 70-513 are next followed by 70-519 at the end.)

    With kind regards,

  • I have not worked on Web services so 513 does not seem to be an efficient option for me.

    Without having prior knowledge i donot want to take up the test for the time being.

    How about taking up MS Sharepoint 2010, Application Development ( 70 573 ) as i have prior idea on MOSS 2007 ?

  • I am familier with a couple of concepts and few need to be revised.

    My question is whether it will be fine to go with Sharpoint 2010 when I have cleared MCTS 70 515 or should i wait, prepare and take 513.

    & what exactly can be Sharepoint's scope in the design of applications?
