Study Group - Our Own Practice Questions

  • I was surprised to find references to other training sites which are asking me to pay more money when I have a free study group at my disposal here on  My first initial thought was this study group will talk about subjects of the exam and offer assistance, but I was wrong.  I didn't find a post like this one when I looked through all the threads, so I decided to create it.  Or, at least throw this idea out and let someone else better than me go forward with it.

    Objective of this Thread:  Create your own question for the group to answer.  

    Content of your replies:  State the Exam Objective for which the question should be in reference.

    Try to stump us with real world scenarios or very tricky questions.  Questions like "What is the HTML5 Doctype?" is too simple or "What is jQuery?" is too broad.

    What do you think?  Good idea or Bad idea?  I'm always scoring up higher on the bad ideas.   Maybe if it works we'll have a forum moderator to make a sticky for us.

  • Good idea... I am behind you on that one

  • Hi Darian,

    I have 2 questions.

    I see that the study material of "Training Guide Programming in HTML5 with JavaScript and CSS3 (MCSD)" from

    ( has VB.NET files and none in C #.

    Can this also happen during certification? I mean, what questions have VB.NET syntax when I program in C #?

    In my case I program in C # and do not want to have to start with VB.NET for the 70-480 exam.

    From already thank you very much.

  • Oscar, I respond to your direct question in another thread; still, it should be said that there is no C# or VB involved here.  You are learning about programming strictly in HTML5, JavaScript, and CSS3 and the corresponding exam (70-480) will indeed test on these, with no C# or VB.

  • I have to agree with Christopher Reed.  Even if there were C# or VB code in the sample files then an understanding of it wouldn't be necessary to get your training on HTML/JS/CSS.

    On a side note, I wouldn't want to use VB either.  I'd rather use JS with Node or Python.

  • I really like the idea, Darian.

    I have a question, please:

    I just started to prepare for exam 70-480 exam. In my practise I tried uploading images to the image folder of Visual studio 2013. When I started writing the code (setting a background image in CSS),

    I discovered that the image that I saved in the folder wasn't uploaded. It didn't show in Visual studio Solution Explorer, where you can see images in your image folder but it shows in the image folder via File Explorer . Please do anybody know what the problem could be?

  • Normally, what I do is Open Web Site within Visual Studio's file menu and choose the directory of the sample project I want to work on.  Importing any type of file into a currently opened project is too fragile for me.  Unless, Are you saying the images files didn't download with your sample files?  If so, I'd retry to download or send the publisher an email.

  • Thanks Darian.

    I later resolved it.
