    Thanks, guys. Now I don't know if I should move on to MCSD: Web Apps or MCSD: Windows Store Apps. I suppose web apps would go better with my experience in SharePoint development. Maybe I'll do both just for fun!

    I'm developing an app as initial prep for 481.

    Already watched the 481 jumpstart content so need a bit of practical application for it to stick in my head.

    Amala9,
    Take a look at the "skills measured" tab of this web page:
    Programming in HTML5 with JavaScript and CSS3

    I'm in the process of re-writing my study guide after having taken the exam a second time. It can be found here:
    70-480 - Programming in HTML5 with JavaScript and CSS3

    I am not certain that I will get that completed before you sit the exam, though. My major suggestion is that you use JSFiddle.net while you are going through the videos on the Channel9 site as well as any of the links in my guide to make sure you understand the concepts completely. You should really know the prototype pattern in JavaScript as well as how to do common things in both jQuery and in pure JavaScript. Since this exam is focused on both the web platform AND on Windows Store apps it does have questions on both sides.

    Most of the questions were exceptionally easy. But some of them were genuinely difficult. Not "tricky" but I sometimes thought "And this is why I go to the API reference site. Who knows every option of [insert jQuery method here]?" But I guess that's why I didn't pass with a perfect score.

    With the amount of effort Rob put into this thread and considering how useful it's going to be for others studying for this exam, I decided it was sticky-time.

    MCSD: Web Applications
    MCSD: Windows Metro style Apps using HTML5
    They have changed the designation from MCTS to MS - Microsoft Specialist.

    What sort of real world experience do you have with web development? And what's next for you?

    2years ago, I started with studying the ASP.net framework (web forms and mvc) and after that I made some apps for my company.
    The years before that, I made some basic websites for several people (with xHTML and CSS2).
    So you can say that I had a good basic knowledge of HTML and CSS3.

    Now I'm looking for a new opportunity, because my company went into liquidation ( I don't know if this is the right way to say it )
    I hope and think that this certificate will help me with my search for this new opportunity. (problem is that I currently doesn't have a bachelor degree)

    Beside I'm also a certified Windows developer 4 (MCPD?).

    I'm sure you'll find something with your experience and certs.

    Do you intend on completing the MCSD: Web Applications certification? I'm starting on the MVC4 studies right now. I took a course on MVC2 a while ago so this should not be too terribly difficult now that we are starting to use the MVC web API here at work with our LOB integration stuff.

    If you do intend on doing the 70-486 let me know and we can cooperate on a study guide for that. The 487, though, is going to be the real butt kicker for me. I have no professional experience and it does not look like there will be any official study guides for that any time soon.

    Hi Robert

    Great post ! it surely helped me I passed to day with 900 score.It was relater easy exam

    Now I am again confused regarding MS certification
    recently I passed 70 536 70 562 and now I have 480 too.
    It seems that only way to get certified ASP.NET web developer (MCSD isn't it) is to go
    for 70 486 and 70 487

    What do you think ?

    PS: I would like to work together with you on next exam if you wish

    MCSD: Web Applications 480 + 486 + 487 (new generation of exams for HTML5 and cloud technologies as well as traditional web platform)

    MCPD: ASP.Net 3.5 536 + 562 + 564 (You only need the 564 which retires in July 31, 2013! )

    I'd say you might as well go for it since it is just one exam.

    I'd love to collaborate on the next study guide with you. Give me a few days and I'll set something up for us.

    Web developing is a thing that I really want to do. I just viewed the MCSD track and I think it's good for me to complete this track. I'm interested to cooperate on a study guide for 486. Do you use some sort of collaboration tool? Or just a shared doc in hotmail/gmail?

    The only thing that might could be a problem is time. For the moment I don't have a job, but I'm following a 4year course (for getting my degree in Applied Informatics) and I have a website for a company to make.

    When do you want to do the exam 70-486? Within a month, 3 months, 6 months, ..?

    Hello. I have experience in HTML, CSS and JavaScript, as well as ASP. They are quite old technologies, and now I've decided to update my skills so I want to pass this exam. Is annoying the few resources that we could find. I've just started studying with the following free ebook .

    Free ebook: Programming Windows 8 Apps with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript - Microsoft Press - Site Home - MSDN Blogs

    I want to take this exam in February or March. Do you think is possible to pass this exam in about two months of study??.

    I am not completely certain yet as my professional experience with MVC is not extensive. So I am going to need to over study and do some lab work. I did take a course on MVC but it was when I was a complete beginner in most aspects of web development except for Silverlight and SharePoint. I'm starting the study right now, though. So I hope that I will have completed the exam by March. I am intending on using second shot because I am not totally certain how I will do even with 2 months of prep.

    If you have previous experience in HTML, CSS and Javascript, u can certainly pass the exam with two months of study.
    I did it in 3 weeks (I also had previous experience with xHTML, CSS2 and a bit of Javascript).
    Check also Robert his study guide, it is very useful.

    Hi Guys! I just heard about the 70-480 a few days ago and I think I'm going to go for it. I have never taken a Microsoft Cert. test but have always wanted to. I Googled the test # and found this forum. This is great! I like all the referencess here that can guide me to what to study. Anyone know where you can take a practice exam of this? I've heard Microsoft tests are weird. (not sure what that means exactly). I saw some study guides in PDFs for sale on ebay. Wondering if that was worth it.

    At this point, I wouldn't trust random PDFs from eBay, (the exam isn't old enough for there to be anything but self-made study guides.) Wait for the MS Press book to come out if you're looking for a more comprehensive cert-prep guide. You could always look at the Apress book, but it's a general knowledge guide, not specifically geared towards the exam.

    Welcome, susanreednet!

    Using the promo code on the MS Virtual Academy web site schedule the test for about 2 months out. Just to ensure you get it for free. Start with the Virtual Academy Jump Start and this resource thread.

    Use the free trial that comes from PluralSight and then sign up for a month of their training. Watch every video you can on HTML5, CSS, and JavaScript. This will be better than buying ANY book on the topic.

    Go through and build a web site (it does not need to be professional grade/public) but make sure you use every feature that they talk about focus on jQuery and Ajax as well as web workers and error handling. In two months, with those resources, I think nearly anyone can pass this test.

    If you are a web developer and use jQuery and JavaScript regularly a week of study might be enough.
