  • 2. What are the best books for the MCAD?
    I have been a .NET developer for 2 years now and I developed with VB6/ASP 3.0 before that. I want to get my MCAD certification and need to know what books to use to study for the test. I plan on doing this through self study. Any advice would be very welcome before I take this on.

My employer has bought the AppDev MCAD/MCSD suite.  Currently ww cannot
get them loaded on my machine.  We are going to try a new CD drive.

I also have Kalani's 70-315 book.  I have written some C#, and a
fairly robust web service in VB.Net.

Another wrinkle is that I am handicapped and am not sure certification
will help.  Most Jobss seem to be going to consultant and I do not see
consultants hiring the handicapped.
During my Lunch hours I would like to prepare for the MCAD.  Two

Is AppDev any good?

What would you suggest I do to prepare?

Your questions:

1. Is AppDev good? It depends on your learning style. The AppDev courseware 
is good for those who do well with CBTs. Depending on your handicap, they may 
be far easier for you than reading. The value of CBT is you are certing 
because you know the material and not because you read a cheat sheet. Do the 
exercises or the value is limited.

2. Handicap? It is illegal for a company, consulting or otherwise, to refuse 
to hire a qualified candidate because of a handicap. Having said that, it 
does happen, in companies that are consulting and otherwise. Whether you will 
be discriminated against, or not, is based on the nature of your handicap and 
how it reduces your viability as an employee. If you are good, it will be a 
hamper at the beginning and less so as you gain notariety on your skills. 
Success overcomes most obstacles.

3. I would use the curiculum. In addition, I would run through some prep 
tests ... for two reasons: 1) They help you get over the nervousness and 2) 
most are very similar in nature to what you can expect on the real test. Make 
sure you understand the reasoning behind the right answers on any prep test 
you take. It is the lack of knowing why that kills most people that test.
