MCAD/MCSD Question

I am wanting to get my MCAD and MCSD certifications and just had a
couple questions. I am fairly new to C# and started learning with .NET
2.0 so one of my questions is, are the test covering .NET 2.0 or 1.1?

If they cover 1.1 is it very different from 2.0?

And will the Microsoft .NET Core Requirements Self-Paced Training Kit
(http://search.barnesandnoble.com/boo...35619255&itm=1)
cover everything I need to know to pass the exams?

Thank you

Absolutely, you have to be sure what version they cover, 2.0 include a lot
of new features.

Read the requirements.

MCAD/MCSD cover .NET Framework 1.1 and Visual Studio .NET 2003.

The newer accreditations are MCPD and MCTS (based on .NET 2.0). But
Microsoft are encouraging people to continue with MCAD. Once MCAD certified,
upgrading to MCPD is easier than starting from scratch as you earn MCTS when
qualifiing for MCPD.

These new exams are still in beta, they won't be available until sometime in
February.

Cheers
Simon.
