Wonder if someone from Microsoft will be able to help me on this?
I studied for both 98-361 and 98-362 using the 'Microsoft Official Academic Course' books from Wiley publishing, I took both exams and passed them first time.
I then purchased another book from Wiley for 98-372 (all of them have 'Microsoft Official Academic Course' stamped on the front covers) - I felt pretty confident after getting pretty high scores using the free practice questions and the questions in the book - so I took the exam and this time I failed.
So I contacted Microsoft via IM and they told me to use '98-372-Study-Guide_PDF' - which I have done - again I felt pretty confident as I got all the correct answers to the questions in the PDF - so I booked a resit of 98-372.
Again I have managed to fail (My score was actually worse this time!)
So my question is (disregarding the fact that the Microsoft questions in the exam match nothing else I have studied) - where is there any training material for this exam - if any?
Seriously - no response from Microsoft, does that mean this forum is not moderated?
So for anyone who is interested in this, It'll give this update:
Well no update from Microsoft as you can see, I have tried speaking to one of their reps on the live chat feature.
So far they have given me links to a teaching course in Ireland (I'm in Scotland),
The exam page that I have been to many times.
Or the 98-372 PDF file - which I have been through.
I have also used the Wiley book
I'm not sure if any of the above have helped or not, granted I have learnt things, but it didn't help pass the exam (when I aced all the other questions from the PDF and Wiley book).
I'll post more as and when I get to the bottom of things.
I am also trying to take the exam.. Please pass on if you get any information on this. Thanks
Great, now I'm worried. I've been doing my best to prep for this exam by reading random MSDN pages and skimming through a C# book I have access to, but now I have to wonder if I'm wasting my time. It is surprisingly hard to find anything specific to this exam.
I'm looking into this as well. Finding learning material is surprisingly difficult.
I am not a Microsoft staff, but I think that some hands on practice would help.
Here it could help joining projects on codeplex.
Or some content from Microsoft virtual academy? Like. Programming in C# Jump Start
But I am not sure is appropriate for 372
I see on the 372 exam page, under skills measured that are links to msdn documentation, I think will read those. Some questions and challenges on the subject would be good, but I do not find it on msdn.
