    Default MCPD Cert Books with ISBN numbers and release dates

    Today (6/29/2006) I got my shiny new book ".Net Framework 2.0 Application Development Foundation" 70-536 and in the back it has a timeline with the books that Microsoft will be releasing....

    As you know there are three MCPD certs - Web, Application, Enterprise - while working tward these Professional certifications you will pick up MCTS certifications that last as long as the technology is supported.

    Intro - Required for all MCPD Paths
    Exam 70-536 - Microsoft .Net Framework 2.0 - Application Development
    ISBN: 0-73556-2277-9
    Release Date: June 2006 (reading my copy now)

    MCPD Web Development

    Exam 70-528 - Microsoft .Net Framework 2.0 Web-Based Client Development
    ISBN: 0-7356-2334-1
    Release Date: September 2006

    Exam 70-547 - Designing and Developing Web Based Applications
    ISBN: 0-7356-2340-6
    Release Date: November 2006

    MCPD Windows Development

    Exam 70-526 - Microsoft .Net Framework 2.0 Windows-Based Client Development
    ISBN: 0-7356-2333-3
    Release Date: September 2006

    Exam 70-548 - Designing and Developing Windows Based Applications
    ISBN: 0-7356-2339-2
    Release Date: November 2006

    MCPD Enterprise Developer

    Exam 70-528 - Microsoft .Net Framework 2.0 Web-Based Client Development
    ISBN: 0-7356-2334-1
    Release Date: September 2006

    Exam 70-526 - Microsoft .Net Framework 2.0 Windows-Based Client Development
    ISBN: 0-7356-2333-3
    Release Date: September 2006

    Exam 70-529 - Microsoft .Net Framework 2.0 Distributed Application Development
    ISBN: 0-7356-2332-5
    Release Date: September 2006

    Exam 70-549 - Designing and Developing Enterprise Applications Using the Microsoft >net 2.0 Framework
    ISBN: 0-7356-2338-4
    Release Date: November 2006

    As you might expect, the Enterprise Developer is the longest path as it is 5 tests instead of 3. But I suspect this is the cert that most of you are going to be chasing.

    If you are starting with no Microsoft certifications you will gain a total of 5 certifications while getting your MCPD Enterprise Developer:

    70-536 MCP and Welcome Pack
    70-528 MCTS Web Client Development
    70-526 MCTS Windows Client Development
    70-529 MCTS Distributed Application Development
    70-549 MCPD Enterprise Developer

    Personally I am going to finish up my CompTIA Security+ and start working my way tward MCPD Enterprise.

    I do hope this forum expands to support the large group of people that will be looking to obtain this certification

    As a side note the Book came with 2 DVDRoms

    One contains a 90 day trail version of VS
    The other contains a test engine and the book in PDF format.

    Have not had time to play with any of these but will post about it once I do.
