So I now have the date booked for my upgrade exam 70-567. So now I am mainly doing some revision as well as trying to remember where I had issues when I did the ASP.NET beta exam.
My main thing is to start looking again at the exam matrix and seeing what I need to brush up on, which for me is a bit of WCF, LINQ and AJAX. These are the major additions to ASP.NET from 2.0 to 3.5
I went through Dino Espsito’s Programming ASP.NET 3.5 book again after finding it explained most of the stuff I wasn’t too familiar with the first time round and also for this exam, I have being doing a lot of ASP.NET development as part of my day to day work and also in my spare time for the Stavanger Rugby club site.
So the MCTS should be ok. The MCPD part will be based on past experience and general knowledge of what do I do when x happens. Not very handy for those trying to do the same thing I know, but I will do another blog post on that next week when I get more stuff squared away.
