MCTS 3.5 certifications

Next week I scheduled in training time focused on gaining “MCTS .NET 2.0 web


I started to investigate what the differences are between the 2.0 exams and the

3.5 versions. Here is what I have discovered (sharing it because everyone I’ve

asked haven’t had any ideas about the 3.5 certs)

MCTS Certification, MCITP Certification

Best Microsoft MCTS Certification, Microsoft MCITP Training at

They stripped out the old 3 ‘silos’ that the MCTS 2.0 exams had

* MCTS: .NET 2.0 Web apps

* MCTS: .NET 2.0 Windows apps

* MCTS: .NET 2.0 Distributed apps

and replaced it with a number of certifications that focus on a technology area.

The .NET 3.5 certifications are listed here. The first 3 with prep guides will

be released late March, with the others being released later on.

* MCTS: Windows Presentation Foundation 70-502 prep guide

* MCTS: Windows Communication Foundation 70-503 Prep guide

* MCTS: Windows Workflow 70-504 Prep guide

* MCTS: ADO.NET 70-561 Prep guide

* MCTS: ASP.NET. 3.5 70-562 Prep guide

* MCTS: Windows forms 70-505

All of these .NET 3.5 certifications still have this requirement

* MCTS: .NET 2.0 App development foundation 70-536 Prep guide

Which means you can work towards any of the 3.5 certifications right now. And if

you currently have a MCTS 2.0 certification then you already have passed that


They will have “upgrade exams” from

MCTS certifications

to 3.5, but full details haven’t been decided yet. But it is suggested that the

upgrade exams will ONLY cover the differences.
