How to get Microsoft certification?
Since last couple of weeks, few friends asked me that how can they get Microsoft certification? Any tips and tricks? I replied to them via email or any other source. But as per Scott’s formula [“You have a finite number of keystrokes left in your hands before you die.” – http://keysleft.com/], rather than replying to email write a blog on it. And share the link. So, next time if someone asks same question to me [Or may be you] Can send this blog’s link.
So long back — I wrote Microsoft certification quick start guide
This document is a best place to start! Few things have been changed. But the basics remains the same.
If you don’t have time to go through the document, and need a quick summary. here you go!
- Target one exam at a time. Visit each exam’s Home Page – Understand what this exam covers. And start preparing. Best way to prepare for MS Certification is MS Press Books. You can find it from each of the following link – Better to have a hard copy. For example you are aiming to give 70-480 exam. It’s exam detail page is here : https://www.microsoft.com/learning/en-in/exam-70-480.aspx check “Skills Measured” section to understand what this exam covers. Check “Preparation options” section for all resources related to this exam.
- Select your exam track from here : https://www.microsoft.com/learning/en-in/certification-overview.aspx for example if you are ASP.NET Web Developer then you should go for this track : https://www.microsoft.com/learning/en-in/mcsd-web-apps-certification.aspx
- Before you go for exams. Start giving exams from Dumps, Search for your exam. E.g. http://www.examcollection.com/70-480.html there will be the lot of dumps. But I follow this formula to select a best dump [You will need a VCE Software to run this VCE files]:
- Select a dump – Which has MOST number of questions
- And which got Max number of votes. So, as per this example it goes for Microsoft.Actualtests.70-480.v2013-12-31.by.MARY.169q.vce
[As it got 169 questions and 162 votes]
- Then book your exam slot, Pearson is best!
