    Default 70-480 - Programming in HTML5 with JavaScript and CSS3

    I took the beta exam for the 7-480 (Programming in HTML5 with JavaScript and CSS3) last week and wanted to give my thoughts on it. I won't go into any details due to the NDA but I will say it was smaller than other betas I have taken part in. I don't think I passed. But that was not due to any difficulty of the exam itself. It was more due to lack of time for me to prepare. Although web development is a component of my job duties my company does not have any intentions of even considering moving into HTML5 until the middle of next year. For this reason I had not given it much attention until I received the beta exam announcement - and with just 3 days to prepare for the end of the exam period.


    I crammed the best I could during those 3 days. but it just wasn't enough time to cover all the topic. IMO, if you already know HTML, CSS, and JavaScript (including some jQuery) and you have two weeks to prep for the exam, you will find the test easy. The questions were not "tricky" and were very representatuve of the objectives.


    Here is a collection of tutorials and other information arranged by the published exam objectives. In compiling this if I placed more than one link for a resource there was usually a motive. Either I thought the concept was difficult or important on the exam or I thought it was very practical and therefore needed to be mastered.

    Excellent reference! I'm sure people will find this very helpful when the exam is released.

    This is a fantastic thread, thank you very much for taking the time to put this together. I'll dropping this in my bookmarks to look back to when I start tinkering with HTML5 and CSS3.

    I got a link to this today, in one of the many (MANY) Microsoft emails I get on a weekly basis: Free ebook: Programming Windows 8 Apps with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript (First Preview) - Microsoft Press - Site Home - MSDN Blogs

    Hopefully, it'll be a bit of help to add to the impressive arsenal of knowledge and tutorials you've already shared.

    Is this exam vendor neutral HTML5, CSS and JavaScript? Are there questions about Microsoft tools? Can also *NIX dev take this exam?

    CrashDump, there were no questions on this exam regarding MS tools. It was strictly HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript with a taste of jQuery thrown in. There were some questions that showed a specific tool, but the questions were answerable if you knew about HTML5 or CSS3 it didn't relate to the tool itself. If you look at the objectives you will notice nothing is mentioned about VisualStudio or Expression Web or any MS proprietary technology.

    As far as I could tell, it was spec HTML5 and MS has committed to IE10 working to the spec and not to an IE specific version of the spec. But you should keep in mind this exam is for people developing Windows Metro apps. So other than this MCTS level cert, I'm not sure where you might go after...

    Thanks for that! I'm not allowed to give you more rep right now, though...

    As far as I know this certification is MCTS and counts toward 2 MCSDs. Even though the MS Learning site does not call it an MCTS there is no other designation that it could be as a 70-XXX exam.

    Default Flexible Box Layout

    Rob, really appricate the outline of resources you provided. It looks like it was back in June you took the exam. Do you know if they are up to date with the latest version of the Fexible Box Layout spec, or was the test on the 2009 or 2011 version?

    Thanks,
    Chris

    I'll be honest: I am not sure but imagine 2011. I still have not gotten my results back but I am involved in a huge HTML5/SharePoint project right now so I am taking this exam again if I failed...

    It's official... I failed. So I am starting serious study for this one and expect to take it again in 4 weeks. I'll let you all know and add additional resources if I need to.

    Ouch, sorry to hear that. Here's to hoping you knock it down the next time around.

    I only had 3 days to prep, so I'm not too worried. I consider it a free practice test. I'll crush it this time.

    Hello, hopefully I'm not digging up too old of a thread here but I would like to say first of all, thanks to the OP this will help me with the exam.

    Also, I found Pluralsight thanks to you and thought I'd share some info with some people. I found out that Dreamspark has a partnership with Pluralsight and if you have a Dreamspark account, you can get a 90 day subscription to Pluralsight for free.

    I would also like to add that one of my professors gave me a link to a free voucher (promo code) for the 70-480 test for anyone thats interested I will post the links below:

    (Free Microsoft Virtual Academy Course)
    https://www.microsoftvirtualacademy....pps-jump-start

    (Microsoft Exam Webpage)
    Programming in HTML5 with JavaScript and CSS3

    Click Schedule, find a test center, pick an appointment, then when you go to pay, click the Voucher/Promo Code button and then use promo code = HTMLJMP

    Remember that its a promo code and not voucher (the Microsoft Vitrual Academy incorrectly says its a voucher code).

    Hope this helps, good luck everyone!

    I took 70-480 today and passed with a 700. (My first MS exam)

    Microsoft exams are definitely a step up from the multiple choice exams in challenge that I've taken from other providers.

    The exam is definitely very straightforward if you're a seasoned web developer and you know HTML/CSS3/javascript but beware you definitely do need to know jQuery as jQuery syntax does pop up in the questions.

    The other thing is don't rely soley on what's in the video course as there were some nuggets of content not specifically covered in the video course that Microsoft provide that came up like the HTML5 API's section.

    Long and short
    - If you're a beginning web dev (eg this is the first time you've seen javascript etc) you'll struggle to pass without first hand experience on projects unless you're good at studying
    - If you're a seasoned web dev who does it for a job and includes jQuery a few hours reading and you should pass it with ease

    Hi,

    Are there questions on the exam about the html/js/css specs that are not supported by microsoft?
    for example w3schools teach about border image, which is supported by al the big browsers except microsoft...

    so what i'm basicly asking is, is al the needed information found on the msdn link as you provided?

    Greatings,
    Rolf de Vries

    You can expect that this will be a very MS centric exam focused on what is supported by IE10. I cannot go into any details due to the NDA but as soon as I got back to my car I wrote down details of the exam knowing I would take it again. Once I got some more experience in HTML5 I realized how IE centric it was. I sit the retake in two days. Wish me luck!

    Thanks, guys. I passed with 880. My largest difficulty was CSS3. I'll be updating my study guide this weekend.
