  • 3. I passed 70-305. What is right track for MCAD, then MCSD.
    Hi All, Yesterday I passed 70-305. I would like to do MCAD and MCSD. I'm thinking of taking Windows .NET with C# ie 70-316. Can I do my MCAD with 70-229(Sql Server 2000) and 70-310 or is it good to do the combination 70-316 and 70-310. ( I would like give one exam on C#) . I read that 70-229 is too hard . I'm good in T-Sql and Database scripting and some of database admin tasks. Thanks,
  • 4. 70-316 exam, need more info
    Hello, I am about to take 70-316 exam (planning to do it in December) and need a bit more info. In particular what study material best to use, format of the exam, how many questions, how long is the exam. I am using Amit Kalani preparation guide 'MCAD/MCSD Training Guide (70-316): Developing and Implementing Windows-Based Applications with Visual C# and Visual Studio.NET ', TranscenderCert exam simulations and material from Internet. Is this enough to pass an exam? I also got a bit more than a year experience in .Net with C#, however mostly with the server components (not much of the GUI). Apart from that I am working with VB6, BizTalk Server 2002, XML, ASP.NET, Web Services. Thanks in advance, Motek
  • 5. two 70-306 question
    I am planning to take 70-306. 1. If I use Microsoft Visual Studio .Net 2003 for study this should be OK? There are new IDE s are available... Should I practice using the latest one? 2. I am planning to take exam by mere reading the content @ MS web site and some articles. Not practicing any questions at all. Is it practically impossible to pass test without investing money on exclusively certification books and materials? I am planning to read a lot at MS web site since I am looking for knowledge also. Any thoughts on my approach? Thank you, John

I am about to start doing 305 for MCAD ( Web Apps using VB)

I have a Masters Degree in Computer Science (done in 1999), and have 5
years experience developing apps using VB6 and SQL. I have gained
experience in VB.NET over the last year.

Will the addition of an MCAD qualification on top of the above make a
big difference to my attractiveness to future employers in the UK? I
am happy where i am etc, but am looking at the best way forward for my

People's views on the above would be greatly appreciated, and
suggested alternatives.

Thanks Liam.

Hi Liam,

If your Masters degree is a conversion style degree (ie your first degree 
wasn't CompSci but something else) then its more likely to make a 

Otherwise, you should really just treat these exams as 'proof to yourself' 
that you can do it. VB6->VB7/C# is a step up that has beaten quite a few

Hi Nick,

And quite a few companies too!

Liam - you really need OO (Object Orientated) knowledge and principals 
before trying for .NET. Almost all .NET books cover this with an 
introductory chapter or two first though to get you started if you are not 
already familiar with the basics.

Yes OOP is a real must.  I've found great help from this book (Professional
C# 3rd edition - WROX publications)  They have an appendix (you can print it
from Wrox' wepsite) with a great into to oop concepts.  Also the book is
very helpful with fundamentals.  I'm a VB person moving to C#.  This book
has been quite a find!
