    You are right. We should not share the experience after the exam.

    I actually said please do share your experience, without breaking any NDA

    I wouldn't expect to hear about specific questions and answers, but I would
    like to know how it compares to the current exams. Was it generally
    "harder", is the content more specific then the current exams, etc.

    I have ordered a couple of books, they are not specific to his exam.
    when they come and I have had a chance to inwrdly digest, I will post
    some more comments.

    Has anyone any experience of doing BETA exams recently?

    Beta exams for .NET have always been 4 hours.

    The ms web site says nothing about separate VB/C# versions of the exam. Does
    anybody know what language its in?

    Ian Walker Guest

    Yes, you get to choose whether you want the C' of VB.Net versions of
    the exam.

    We have come up with a innovative way to handle languages in .Net exams... It
    is no more required to select a language while choosing an exam... 71-528
    will be available in both C# as well as VB.Net... When the exam begins you
    will be given an option to choose a code language that you would like to
    appear the exam in...

    We call this concept as "Exam Branching"

    Do write back about your experiences when you appear the exam...

    Do you wish us to write about our experiences here in this NG, or at the
    exam's feedback session? I would be somewhat worried about posting
    experiences in here due to NDAs...???

    i took the beta exam , yesterday..
    But unlike the normal certifications, I didnt
    get my resutls at the end of the exam
    The test center says, since its Beta xa
    the results will be sent directly to me, some time later
    Is that true?????

    Yep, beta exam results are mailed to you sometime around the release of the
    exam to the public.

    How was the exam. I could not take the exam due to the heavy work load at
    office and didnt find enough time to prepare.

    Hope you had wonderful ride.

    The xam went all fine. But since I was busy with my office work,
    with my masters project, ....and preperation for this xam... couldnt
    do it well.

    I have the asp .net book which was old, it was based on the CTPreview
    on 2.o framewrk. And it has all code in VB, though i took the xam in

    But, if v read the latest released book, v can make thru it easily.
    The questions where much better than the prev. asp .net xam. Wat i
    observed, there are many questions which were frm 1.1 framework..
    I spent lots time on the new datasource/providers, but didnt find
    many Q's on these...and i almost ignored mobile but there
    were many Q's frm it.
    I hope, i didnt write anything against wat NDA says... if so lemem
    know..i will modify it accordingly.
