    Lightbulb 70-483 Crash Course

    So I've picked up C#...and I'd like to pass the 70-483 C# exam, but I want to make sure that I'm ready. I'm pretty new to the language, but I've managed to find a few resources - mainly MVA (microsoft virtual academy) and I may pick up a subscription to learnvisualstudio.net - or pluralsight. will these be enough to pass the test, or will these videos be missing some things maybe?

    On a sidenote - almost totally unrelated - There's 70-480 that I could take, and I'm pretty good with HTML and CSS, but not Javascript - so either test, I'll be learning a language - either C# or Javascript. However, my reasoning for C# is this: 70-486 sounds like it might rely on something I'll learn from C#, if that makes sense.

    Thoughts?

    The 486 exam is a professional level test. Have are you currently working as a developer?

    Well, I haven't thought TOO far ahead yet, but I haven't worked as a developer using the Microsoft stack. I'm a freelance developer now, but I've only used Open Source technologies.

    However, I'm starting to wonder if the MCSD would be too far over my head without having some work experience with the microsoft stack - but I'm not quite sure how I would actually get my foot in the door as a developer (is junior developer a thing?) - a degree is out of the question for a good while and beyond my control

    You want to get Certified without learning it!! you should start learning the basics of .NET and C#, do some hands on practice before jumping into test preparation... i am preparing for 70-483 for quite some time trying to get my head around..

    Watching videos and wasting money on subscriptions isn't the way to learn a programming language, friend. You need to learn the syntax and do your own project in the language as soon as possible. And of course you need the Microsoft textbook for exam guidance and practice questions.
