Preparation and Training Material for MCTS 70-515

Earlier this month I passed MCTS: .NET Framework 4, Web Applications. After which I started receiving emails regularly asking about training kit or any preparation material for exam. So I thought may be its good idea to write a blog post on it instead of replying to emails individually.

So let’s discuss about the exam and how to prepare for it.

Exam Format:

The exam comprises of 50 Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs) with 70% marks as passing criteria.

Preparation Material:

As the exam was published some months back so obviously the training kit is not available yet. Well honestly there was no single book or training kit available to prepare. Overall I have gone through most of the following material for exam :

  1. Hands on: jQuery, ASP.NET Web forms and MVC 2

Pre-requisite:

I think it would be good if you have 2+ years of experience of building asp.net web applications. Like me if you were a ASP.NET Web Form developer then you may simply need to learn some new features of ASP.NET 4 along with hands on MVC framework, jQuery etc.

Hope this helps!
