Re: .NET Training order / prerequisites

  1. Hi,
    I am an MCT that teaches these classes. I think you will be happy taking the
    2559 class first. It will reinforce the knowledge you have from your
    previous experience, teach you some new things, and introduce you to VB.NET.

    After that take the 2310 which will introduce ASP.NET and reinforce the
    VB.NET that you learned in 2559.

    Both 2559 and 2310 are designed for those who are new to .NET, but have some
    general programming background. So you should be comfortable with the level
    of these classes.

    Then take the 2389 to learn more about ADO.NET. You will get some exposure
    to ADO.NET in both of the earlier classes, but it is a big topic so there is
    lots more to learn. As for XML, look for some basic tutorials on the web to
    familiarize yourself with the topic, that should be sufficient. You will
    also learn a little about XML in the 2310 class.

    I would recommend that you not take 2373, that course is designed as a quick
    update to VB.NET and the .NET platform for those who are very experienced
    with older versions of VB. Perhaps the training center will let you
    substifute a different class. The 2415 .NET Framework class might be a good
    choice, take this one last.
    Allow some time between classes, so you can do some work on your own and
    practice the things that you have learned. That way you can ask lots of
    questions when you when you attend the subsequent classes.
