Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist (MCTS) Silverlight 4 Development

I am really happy to share my first experience on MCTS exam. Yes, I successfully completed my Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist (MCTS) Silverlight 4 Development certification today. Really it was nice experience since it is first certification exam in my career. I just want to share some technical information about this exam. Hope following information will be useful to you guys when you plan for silverlight certification exam.
Here is the info:
Total questions are 50 and given time was 2:20 hrs. Here are the section details.

  • 10 questions from data model (MVVM)

  • 5 questions from WCF service reference.

  • 5 to 7 questions from templates and styles.

  • 2 questions from out of browser

  • 3 questions from Object tag in aspx file.

  • 10 questions from typical xaml and code behind logic such as event handler, background thread, dependency properties, etc.

That’s all I could remember. However, people can pass this exam very easily if you have good experience on MVVM, control templates, styles, basic WCF configuration and deployment, dependency properties and custom controls.
