Which do you prefer? MCTS: Web Apps or MCTS: Windows Apps?

Discussion in 'MCTS' started by Willy David Jr, Dec 21, 2006.

  1. I have just passed my first Microsoft Certification which is 070-536. Now I
    am looking forward on achieving MCTS. Which do you think is in demand in our
    industry or the best one: MCTS: Web Apps or MCTS: Windows Apps? Thanks in
    advance for comments and suggestions!

    Hi
    I completed my MCTS in Web Development 3 months ago. I am working as an IT
    contractor and can say that in the UK demand for web apps far exceeds demand
    for windows apps IMO.
    Hope this helps and good luck with the exam.

  4. Hi Ritesh Mehta

    It does say that you will earn credit to
    •Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist: .NET Framework 2.0 Web
    Applications
    • Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist: .NET Framework 2.0 Windows
    Applications
    • Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist: .NET Framework 2.0 Distributed
    Applications

    because in order to get that MCTS, you need to pass 2 exams. One is 70-536,
    and the other one is 70-528 or 70-526 or 70-529, depending on which one is
    you preffered. Passing only 70-536 will not earn you to become certified in
    the bulleted mentioned above. You need to pass two exams.

    One thing, reviewing only 70-536 doesn't mean that you can take 70-528 or
    70-526 or 70-529 because 70-536 will only cover general overview of .NET 2.0
    Framework and WILL NOT COVER 70-528 or 70-526 or 70-529. But is really
    related to them but as much as possible, you have some resources for the
    other certifications. You still need to purchase or review some books related
    to your planned certification tracks.

    Hope that answers. Regards.
