MUST READ - Tips & Tricks for preparing for Windows C# exam (70-31

Posts: n/a
I passed the Windows C# exam yesterday (May31st) with a score of 820. I have
a short list of my observations here

* 42 Questions in 150 minutes - You will NEVER EVER run out of time on this

* Only 1 question was a "Select all Correct choices". All others EXPLICITLY
STATED "Select 2" or "Select 3" - If you were a little frustrated with
getting the "Select All" questions wrong in the practice tests, don't be !

* Very heavy on ADO.Net - Amit Kalani's book (
coverage of ADO.Net is NOT SUFFICIENT ! Read the classic David Sceppa's
ADO.Net tome ( or atleast do some sort of pre-prep
on ADO.Net !

* Fair coverage of all topics - DON'T SKIP reading chapters in Amit's book.
You do need to know atleast something about everything !

* If the question+answers span more than the screen real-estate and you
choose the correct answer without scrolling down, you get the annoying pop-up
window saying "You have not read the entire question blah blah blah ..." -

* READ MSDN - This link is an excellent resource for doing that

I also used Jesse Liberty's "Programming C#" book (
as a starter to learn C#. Of course, you may not need this if you're already
an expert in C# !

Onto 70-320 .....

Proud of preparing & doing the exam the hard way WITHOUT any STUPID DUMPS,
