I may have mentioned it before, but in case I haven’t, there’s a few Microsoft Certifications I want to get. Well, my target is an MCPD certification (that is, Microsoft Certified Professional Developer), but to do that one, I have to get an MCTS (Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist) first.
I’m happy to say that I’ve finally gotten my hands on a set of textbooks from which I can learn everything I need to get the MCTS; although, at this point, I can’t take the course for reasons I don’t want to bother mentioning.
The exams that make up the MCTS Windows Developer – that is, a specialist in Windows Forms development – are exam 70-536 (Application Development Foundation) and exam 70-526 (.NET Framework 2.0 Windows Based Client Development).
I know there’s more to the MCTS than this, but at this point, I’ll settle for what I can get. It’s still going to cost me my salary for 2 months to take the course, and that’s minimum expenditure.
At the moment, I’m working through the Application Development Foundation textbook and, although it’s taken me a week, I just started chapter 2 yesterday.
I had an idea about posting the lesson and chapter summaries over the next few weeks, but I’m not sure if that constitutes copyright infringement (if anyone can confirm, please let me know).
Thanks for your time and interest. Until next time…
