    is mcsd available for VS 2005. if yes what are the paper codes. Almost all the paper codes i have seen on mcsd site are of framework 1.1
  • 4. NO Prior Experience
    Would it be possible to pass the exam with no prior hands on experience. I'm taking the 305 exam next week and the only prior experince has been the book examples. I purchased the whole .net core package and I have used the questions provided. Those questions are long and hard, plus I purchased the Trancender bundle as well and so far it has been good. But, the hardest test I have taken has been from the microsoft assesment website. the best score I had so far has been a 64% I need guidance. should I have some prior experince or is this ok.

I Passed 315 Today !     

score 902    

I use :    
Microsoft Training Kit  
A lot of MSDN libary  
SefTest software.        

SefTest question are, sometime, more difficult of real question, but
it's e real good method to prepare the test.... Start SefTest in learn
mode, when you do not know the answer don't read the solution ! Study
on msdn !

It's a hard test...

Hi Enricoe

What's the weight for each exam objectives? Like what's the percentage
of the exams are for the ADO.NET, what's the percentage for the
Configuration questions? etc.

Thanks in advance,

So, ADO.NET a lot but simple, study when you must use sqlClient or
OleDBClient, the connection string, and methods of dataset like the
merge.

You must know the web.config, security and autorization very well,
inproc , stateserver and sqlserver manage of states too.

You can search exam section on the microsoft site.

Just passed 70-315 with 884.

My Background:
Have done just one 'proper' project in .NET and that too about writing
a windows service. But that got me aquainted with .NET and syntax and
all that. I was coding in java for more than a year (before February
2003) but that was a very good groundwork for my concepts et al for
C#. Afer that it was all ASP and SQL till beginning of 2004 when I
picked up .NET

Resources used:
* The 'GOD' book - Amit kalani's 
* Microsoft's-MCAD/MCSD-Developing web applications with MS VB.NET and
C#.NET
* Tim's online notes 
* transender exams
* some yahoo groups 
* online questions from different sites
* qod.com

Preparation:
* The 'GOD' book - kalani's (read each page, solved all exercises -
except guided ones, this was my FIRST exposure to ASP.NET and C#)
* Microsoft's - MCAD/MCSD - Developing web applications with MS VB.NET
and C#.NET (not all chapters only some, though an excellent book many
topics are irrelevant if your soul purpose is to pass 315)
* Tim's online notes (excellent notes - the best I feel, simply
because they point to MSDN articles; skimmed through most
articles/links in last 2 days before my exam)
* transender exams - very good preparation to get you in the zone/mood
(scores -720, 800, 800)
* working full time and married
* took about 3 months on the whole, but very limited preparation on a
daily basis as such - somewhere about 1.5 hrs on an average.


My experience:
A pretty straightforward exam if you are well prepared (Duh!).
No, seriously, you need to be sure that you are well prepared for the
exam as the questions can get tricky sometimes.
Read as much material as possible to get maximum information. Again,
'MSDN articles' is the best resource per moa.
Try to get mock exams/sample questions and such - that helps.
Testing out the finer points by writing code also helps a lot as then
it gets embossed in your brain (for awhile atleast).
Get the evaluation copy of SQL server, the .NET framework (free) and
the free .NET IDE (SharpDevelop etc) and start coding to get practise.
Of course if you can get licensed versions and VS .NET that is the
best.
There are some standard questions that should jump out to you while
studying itself - from topics like controls(user,custom), migration
from ASP to .NET, globalization, accessibility etc.

Remember - Practice makes man perfect (or is it practise!!??)

Passed 315 today with a socre of 905.is that a good score?
took about a 40 minutes.

Prepared with MSDN,ms press books and testking.
Also practiced a lot on the mspress book's Practice tests 
on the cd.they really give you a feeling of the test. 

My advice is before a day ot two left for exam go thru 
testking. it will help a lot.

One more resource that helped me a lot is 
www.codeclinic.com
its really a gold mine.

Onto 320 NOW.

Hi hem,

I would suggest you Microsoft's MCAD/MCSD Self-Paced Training Kit:
Developing XML Web Services and Server Components with Microsoft Visual
Basic .NET and Microsoft C# .NET (ISBN: 0-7356-1586-1) for 70-320,
because it covers almost all the exam objectivies and more over since u
have already cleared 70-315, going thro it will be a breeze for you.
And for practice questions you can use either testking or dumps from
autodumper.com (But use it only after u have finished the book and very
clear with the concept)

Anyways best wishes for ur preparations and do let us know abt ur
progress.

43 questions and 2 hours limit. Got 886. Not as easy as 
316. Kalani book was fabulous again and was well 
supplemented by trial exams.

Hello Dom,

Congratulations!

I just have one month experience on .NET. 

I am going to give 316 exam in 3 days. I am using Amit Kalani book.  Please 
let me know what other resources you have referred? And what topics are being 
asked mostly in the exam? Your help is very much appreciated. 

I am very nervous of the exam.
