Hey folks...

Its really different experience to announce about .Net flavour in Javaranch...

At the end of the day its about knowledge that makes sense in the end...

Its too early for me comment the good and bad of the .Net technology...

But i think i should gives some words to those who are going to do .Net may be someone like me - after Java....

I used the Microsoft MCTS self study book for .Net Framework 2.0 Application Development Framework...

I should say the MS has come up with a syllabus that has good depth compared to that of SCJP... Because .Net syllabus is not just about language fundamentals, it even goes on to talk about, Installation, Configration Management, Security and Encryption, Debugging, Logging, Emailing, Reflection and stuff like that... In that front i rank the 70-536 exam as a better thing compared to SCJP.. It feeds you more things you need to know as a developer in the respective platform..

As far as the exam is concerned its a joke with MS... No where near SCJP...

So dont be fooled when someone says 'Dude I got through .Net', especially someone like me.... hehehe

Even for a Java guru, i feel MS development is a must to examine avenue

Cheers

Well buddy there are two things...

The toughness itself is not in par with SUN exam (I am not gonna argue whether you need that sort of toughness really...)

But this is how i rate it..

In some SUN exam that level of toughness really puts you are competent enough and to be a thinker in the exam seat...

Other thing with MS is, even the leaked out exams are in the real exam database...

Some of the mocks i tried to gear up for the exam were really there....

Hope i did clarify you on my comments

I was debating whether this belonged in the Certification Results forum, or in the job discussion. But it seems to lean towards Cert Results, so I am going to move this thread to that forum. This thread is way too meaningful for Meaningless Drivel.

Congrats on passing the MS test.

Hey Mark..

I also thought to put this under Cert Results, but since forum's title read as'Sun Cert...', i had to make it into the other thing, Meaningless...

Anyway thanks for the move
