New to this Need Advice of exam Track

  • Hi,

    I'm new to this. 

    I haven't done any of Microsoft exams yet. I want to do the MCSD - Web Application path..  So is it ok to start with this exam 70-480? or do I need to do some other exams?


  • Hello asanka,

    Yes, you can start with exam 70-480, and proceed with 70-487 and  70-486.  More so, there is no lawa restriction on how you write your exams. However, your final certification MCSD will reflect only when you finish all the required exams.

    Hope this answers you?

    Wishing you goof success.


  • I personally recommend that you should start with 98-375 (HTML5 Application Development fundamentals) just so that you can get familiar with HTML5. Then after it you can go for 70-480

  • hey Thanks for your replys..

    Also if I do one exam lets say 70-480 or 98-375 do I get certified as MCP?

  • You will have MCP status with either exam.

    Also, Thabang's recommendation, the 98-375 exam is designed for those without any experience in HTML, but have knowledge from training and other sources.  With the 70-480 exam, there is an expectation that you have some experience using HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript in a real-world situation.
