  • 3. 70-305 - Web Applications advice
    I am planning to do my MCAD this year. I currently have 5 years exp VB6 and SQL Server, and 1 year .NET. The first exam Im going to take is 70-305 - .NET Web Apps There are a few questions Id like help with before I start; 1) How long will i need to prepare for this exam (how long a piece of string I know) but, how many topics should I aim to cover a week? Is there anywhere I can locate a strategy guide do give some structure to my learning. 2) What is the best book? I hear the official Microsoft one are not adequate to pass 3) I will be attempting this without any training - just self learning, is this wise? 4) How can I expect the MCAD to benefit me - I am now 27 with 5 years experience, but am just a bog standard developer. Should I aim to be some kind of lead developer? Thanks in Advance Everyone! Gareth
  • 4. new to IT MCAD or MCSD.Net
    I am 33 years old, currently not employed or knowledgable in the IT Business World. I am very interested in programming and development. I have an opportunity to go to a place called TechSkills.com for free. I will be getting certifications in the following A+, then Network+, SCJP (Core Java 2), and then I have a choice of MCAD or MCSD.NET. Does anyone have a recommendation as to what I should do ? Will I find work with these certifications alone and no degree ? I'd appreciate some educated professional opinons. I understand that I will probably sit behind a help desk for a while, but I am willing to wait my turn to advance. I am eager to develop software, not answer phones. Do people in this industry promote from within ?
    hi.. i m planning for MCAD Paper 1, now the only doubt i have in my mind is tht fact tht VS2005 have been released... so is thr any possibility tht within the same year we will have to upgrade ourself..... n tht probably mean tht we will have to again give the same paper... any suggestions regarding tht.. plz do email me at XXXX@XXXXX.COM

first you need to be sure of what exactly you want to ask... mcsd... 
programming... making your own messenger... whatever

have a read of this

if you are a beginner and think that MCAD or MCSD will look good on you !!!
hold you guns... lapel pins okay... but i havent used it till date..
get yourself .net sdk at

for info on visual studio

if you to try the new Visual studio 2005 tools.. express products are here
just for you.. help yourself.

Now one you know in's and out's of programming ... on to certification..

Basic info on what MCP/MCAD/MCSD is

pointers to the right places...
MCP.. you give one exam you become MCP

MCAD.. do 3 select MCP exmas and you become MCAD

MCSD.. do all the required MCPs for a particular stream and you become MCSD

For .NET certification(s) MCP/ MCAD/ MCSD:
you have 55 questions
passing score is 700 of 1000
its a 2 hour exam (plus 15 mins for tutorial + 15 for comments)
it costs 103.something GBP in uk...
you can find out the cost for your country at

Also... you can take the exam in any order.. start with elective or a core
the only requirement is that you do the least number of MCPs required for
your cert

If you program in C#.. get Amit Kalani's stuff... its not too bad... infact
i am doing my 70-320 with this book and it all looks good so far.

if you want MS training material...

Please dont request dumps and or training material or information to be
emailed to you. if you are smart enough to finish a newsgroup to spam then
please remember that google is your best friend. first find out what mcad /
mcsd is.
