Objectives Guides for .NET Exams Now Online

New exams guides for Microsoft's developer tracks now available; details beta dates.

Microsoft just last week posted exam objective guides for the .NET exams. Those exams are components of the revamped MCSD for Microsoft .NET and newly created Microsoft Certified Application Developer for Microsoft .NET titles that the company announced last month:

Microsoft has yet to post guides for three other exams required for completing the developer tracks:

  • 70-320, Developing XML Web Services and Server Components with Visual C# and the .NET Framework
  • 70-300, Analyzing Requirements and Defining .NET Solution Architectures

How does one get notified to take the beta exams and how far in advance? I would think since I'm MCSD & MCDBA I would get an offer to take the beta exams, right?
