Gang of Four

Preparing to take my 70-306 test and saw a reference to Design
patterns. How important is this topic to taking the test? Most of
the study material jumps back and forth from VB.net and C++, but
Design Patterns doesn't say much about VB.net. Are these patterns
universal or just for C++?

Thanks,

These Patterns are universal. For .NET-Implementations see:

Illustrated GOF Design Patterns in C#
http://www.codeproject.com/csharp/csdespat_1.asp
http://www.codeproject.com/csharp/csdespat_2.asp
http://www.codeproject.com/csharp/csdespat_3.asp
http://www.codeproject.com/csharp/csdespat_4.asp
http://www.codeproject.com/csharp/csdespat_5.asp
http://www.codeproject.com/csharp/csdespat_6.asp

You may also have a look at

http://www.microsoft.com/resources/practices/

a great resource for patterns in .NET.

John,
In addition to the other comments next month's MSDN magazine has an article
on common GOF design patterns, plus how they've been implemented in the
Framework itself.

http://msdn.microsoft.com/msdnmag/is...7/default.aspx

Unfortunately the article is not available on-line yet.

Hope this helps
Jay

One of the outstanding things about design patterns are their language
agnostic principles.

A good understanding of them is of paramount importance for any programmer
who want's to understand and create better architectures.

it wasn't on the exam when I took it and if you look at the exam topics
(http://www.microsoft.com/learning/exams/70-306.asp) you will not find
it -- nonetheless, learn it -- it is invaluable
