MCPD – Web Developer

Its finally there! Its on the transcript! Yey!

Last October 29, I took the exam 70-547: and I got a passing score (phew!) Well that was really really hard!


My strategy for this exam is based on the preparation guide of the exam it self, so quoting Microsoft Learning:

Candidates should have worked in the following phases of the application life cycle:

  • Technical envisioning and planning
  • Design and development
  • Stabilizing and releasing

If you are taking this soon, I would suggest that you focus on these topics:

  • Exception handling
  • SQL and Data Topics
  • Authorization and Impersonation
  • The usual master page and theme questions
  • Validator controls
  • Testing and Deployment


Thanks also to my Boss 😛 for getting us this wonderful reference books from Microsoft Press! This book is still available at
