Details are slowly coming out from Redmond and Gerry O’Brien about the upcoming exams for Visual Studio 2010.
Similar to the exam structure that has been used for .NET 2.0 and .NET 3.5 exams, the new .NET 4.0 exams will have what looks like 3 MCPDs and a number of MCTS certifications. To date the ones that have been announced (or passed the initial exam design stage with SMEs) are
- 70-511 TS: Microsoft .NET Framework 4, Windows Applications Development (WPF)
- 70-515 TS: Microsoft .NET Framework 4, Web Applications Development
- 70-513 TS: Microsoft .NET Framework 4, Windows Communication Foundation Development
- 70-516 TS: Microsoft .NET Framework 4, Accessing Data with ADO.NET
- 70-518 Pro: Designing and Developing Windows Applications Using Microsoft .NET 4
- 70-519 Pro: Designing and Developing Web Applications Using Microsoft .NET Framework 4
These exams have finished their initial exam design stage. Betas for these exams should be around March 30 maybe.
