Thanks you guys for coming to the prep session with Susan yesterday, even if you weren’t listening. Please read this – I know from the number of questions on it we haven’t done a good job explaining:
Does 536 cover .NET 2.0 content or 3.5 content?
70-536 is focused on measuring your skills and knowledge of the fundamentals of .NET development. The aspects of .NET development that we’re covering in the exam are the same whether you’re using .NET 2.0 or 3.5 – the questions are not tied to a specific version. Customers who are experienced using either 2.0 or 3.5, and are comfortable with the objectives of the exam listed on the prep guide, should be able to pass the exam. If you are a 2.0 developer you do not need to ‘learn’ 3.5 to pass 70-536; a 3.5 developer does not need to review 2.0 to pass the exam.
