MTA 98-361 Preparation (Info collected from several posts)

  • Hello everybody!

    I am a software developer with around 7 years experience in Desktop/Web Microsoft apps and now I want to prepare the Software fundamentals certifications, aka MTA 98-361.

    I enclose here below several resources found in this community. I would like to hear from you guys about more knowledge resources useful to pass this exam and how long should take the previous preparation. I know, in each case is different but I think it can be helpful for those who want to achieve this goal at some date. Just with your experience time and the time invested in preparing the exam.

    Resources:

    - Practice test at MeasureUp ("Certification mode" and "Study mode"), these tests don't cover the entire Exam.
    - Microsoft virtual academy
    - youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLH5qQbwU8SGh4A1yj7CCkQri6gQ_Xqd2c
    - John Wiley 98-361 BOOK
    - wikiversity https://en.wikiversity.org/wiki/Exam_98-361:_Software_Development_Fundamentals

    Cheers!

  • Hello Rabasco,

    My name is Rupam, and I'm currently studying for the 98-361 MTA certification. Thank you for the course resources that you have shared.

    Well, there is some other MTA certification exams on web and desktop apps. are they also needed along with the 361 certificate or the"98-361" is enough? please let me know.

    Thanks

  • Hi Rupam,

    sorry for the delay answering you. Probably you already know the answer to your question...

    I think is enough if you just take one of those exams. They are there just depending on how do you want to continue after getting the MTA certification.

    Here is well explained.
