Uhuh, After months and months of practice and reviews!
Sharing my strategy on this leg of exams, I first took the exam 70-528 : Microsoft® .NET Framework 2.0 – Web-based Client Development last May 12, 2008 and roughly two months later I was ready to take on exam 70-536 : Microsoft® .NET Framework 2.0 – Application Development Foundation (July 07, 2008). I took 528 first because I am really a Web Guy 😀 and my first ever MCP exam is exam 70-305 Developing and Implementing Web Applications with Microsoft® Visual Basic® .NET and Microsoft® Visual Studio® .NET which I took February 27, 2008.
Certification exam titles are a mouthful huh? Yeah! You even have to pass both 528 and 536 exam to have the MCTS certification. Depending on your strategy on how you would schedule the two exam, you may opt to take 528 first then the 536 or the other way around. You may just have to focus on the topics and what I did was structure the topics where-in overlapping topics as much as possible be reviewed once then the specifics should be on the initial and final review.
Not just for this exam but also for reference. Its like having a specific MSDN topic on my bookshelf 😀
