    Hey Rob! Check out this link. I also implemented this in SharePoint, but of course with this being CSS3 it only works properly in Chrome, Firefox, Opera and Safari

    That looks like it would be helpful in conjunction with the other resources suggested in this thread.

    I stupidly thought that going through those MVA videos will be sufficient and that the exam is going to be easy... and now I only have a few more days to cram for this exam.

    One question I have is that, the videos showed some MS specific stuff. Things like ms-flex-box, ms-grid, WinJS Promises.

    Are those coverd in the exam?

    thanks!

    NDA prohibits me from saying exactly what's on the exam but I'd advise that you check the study guide in this thread and work through the points in the study guide that are not covered in the videos as there are elements that are definitely examined that are not covered in the videos.

    The MVA videos do cover a good percentage of the material but theres a few extra bits that are not covered. Compare the MVA content against the exam objectives and you'll see what I mean.

    I'm not even sure why they covered promises in the MVA. Those are not in the objectives... But I guess that was more an intro to the Windows Store apps material just to get the student started thinking about it.

    As for the other items like ms-gid, you should have an understanding of those for sure as they do fit within the objectives.

    Question numbers vary from test to test as you never get the same test as the previous person but 40 - 50 is average what other people written.

    Pass score is 700 but this is a scaled score so does not mean 70%. Its a pass score set by the exam creatorsl

    Here is what the MCP Support folks say regarding the purchase of the physical cert as of January 7, 2013:

    Unfortunately this certificate is not ready for purchase, but will be in the coming weeks.

    From Microsoft's site:
    "Credit Toward CertificationWhen you pass Exam 70-480: Programming in HTML5 with JavaScript and CSS3, you complete the requirements for the following certification(s):
    • Programming in HTML5 with JavaScript and CSS3 Specialist"


    So.. does that mean they do not offer even a printed copy of the certificate when you pass yet?

    Correct. This is likely due to the name changes from MCTS to MS and the change in color from gold to blue.

    You can still download the PDF or XPS version of the certificate and print it yourself. But to purchase a physical copy of the certificate, you will have to wait until February.

    Thanks Robert and all of the other guys for the helpful resources!
    I'll take the exam on February 6th. I have work experience with C# ASP.NET, HTML CSS and a little of javascript.
    I was following these two study guides also:
    Exam 70-480 Study Material: Programming in HTML5 with JavaScript and CSS3
    Blogged By Chris » Microsoft Exam 70-480 Study Guide

    I don't know much about ajax, although I have done something in the past I think I should study more, now that I read your opinion about the exam.
    I also get the free 90 days on pluralsight by dreamspark, and I'll start to study hard now.

    Hello and thanks Robert. I've just passed the exam this morning. Mark of 1000/1000!!! Now I'm going to prepare for the next one, the 70-486, about ASP .NET. I see that there's a new study guide, I'll have to check it...

    It's not very well developed. If you find resources, please post them! And thanks! You did much better than I did. I only scored an 880.

    Cool Thanks for your help

    Just wanted to say thanks to all of those who wrote on this thread. I was able to pass the exam today thanks to many of your comments. It was also quite difficult in some of the ajax areas as well as jquery things since I was not as familiar with them in any of my own experience. Keep up the great work and keep on learning

    Well.. I took the test today using the links in this thread and a few other places and I failed the test today.

    I'm not a web developer or programmer (at all) .. I know I averaged about half of the test correctly.
    I'm not that discouraged because I gained a lot of knowledge from studying for the test, especially HTML5.

    When a test comes out like this with a free voucher, it's crazy "not" to take a chance, study it the best you can and take the exam.

    Thanks for the study links Robert, that was very kind of you to post out there.
    I feel that those links helped me out most of all.

    Passed it first time round today!!! 700 on the dot, would you believe? Thanks for your guide, I used it along with MVA and this another guide I found online Blogged By Chris » Microsoft Exam 70-480 Study Guide. I am really impressed with myself considering I had zero JavaScript experience prior to this. Thanks all

    Some advice would be appreciated.

    I am looking to sit this exam in the near future. I have decided to take the approach of learning JavaScript from scratch first (covering the JavaScript exam objectives in the process) and then focusing on the specific areas of HTML5 and CSS3 that are relevant to the exam.

    I am already proficient in HTML4 and CSS2, so I am not overly concerned about learning the new elements in 5 and 3 respectively (although areas like HTML canvas etc don't look overly straightforward).

    Do people think this is a good approach?

    My reasoning is that I want to develop a good understanding of Javascript regardless of the objectives for this cert, so I thought this would be a perfect time to pick it up from scratch and go into as much detail as possible...

    Hello,

    I'm sitting for this exam in mid july. I'm trying to gather resources and purchased the training bundle book.

    I see a lot of people recommending pluralsight videos for HTML5, what about the lynda ones ? From what I saw they seemed to be far more detailed. They also have a few DIY project videos for jquery and html5.

    For Javascript I'm planning to use the following Tutsplus premium video tutorials:

    Javascript fundamentals 101 (https://tutsplus.com/course/javascript-fundamentals/)
    advanced javascript fundamentals (https://tutsplus.com/course/advanced...-fundamentals/)
    Object Oriented Javascript (https://tutsplus.com/course/object-oriented-javascript/)

    Form CSS3, I'm a bit uncertain. Also I don't know if I should go through CSS2 again even though I know it (intermediate level probably)

    I think you are doing it right. The way I see it, you can't really touch HTML5 JS API without knowing Javascript first.

    Thanks for the book reference Slowhand. This book seems very Windows 8 - centric however, is that an important element of 70-480 ? Or is it that the HTML, CSS and Javascript covered in the book makes it a good adjunct reference for the test (if one ignores the Windows 8 focus of it?).

    This thread is so thorough, I'm wondering if one shouldn't use this thread as the basis of their study for the test? Rvince

    Hello,

    Can someone please tell me if it's necessary to know the exact syntax of functions in javascript for this exam ? I'm talking about String/Array/Number functions specifically.

    Also, I have about 25 days to prepare and I have no background in HTML5 and CSS3.Will I benefit more from reading a book on HTML5,CSS3,JS or just watch video tutorials ? I don't know if I remember all the information just watching videos.
