[dotnet] MCPD upgrade exams from MCSD

By James Hippolite, in , posted: 12-Jun-2008 05:39

Kiaora Shane, The greatest piece of advice I received was: don’t do it!  Do the individual exams instead.  When I attempted the 70-551, I failed.  Ended up doing all 3 exams separately (70-536, 70-528, 70-547).  Greater coverage, greater understanding.  Unless you’re a genius.  For those of us of average intelligence, not a good choice.

has anyone sat either of exams 70-553 or 70-554? If so, do you have any study material you can sell second hand, or can you point me towards some study material? There are guides and practice exams available for the other regular exams in the MCPD range, but there seems to be a scarcity of anything for the upgrade exams.

Welcome to my technical blog. 

Here, I attempt to distill the Microsoft Certified Professional Developer knowledge I have accumulated since first qualifying MCP in 1996.  This blog started on 13 September 2007 as an off-shoot from my mixed up personal blog.  But it took a shot in the arm from Scott Hanselman's talk at TechEd New Zealand 08 "32 Ways To Make Your Blog Suck Less".
