Got My First Sharepoint Certification In WSS Application Development (Exam 70-541)

Hi guys,

It has been long time i didnt post any thing on this blog, i was busy with my projects and was studying sharepoint books for certification. Initially i had planned to do certification on Exam 70-630, i had posted article regarding this on my blogs here.  But later relasied that as a sharepoint developer it would be good if i get certification in application development in WSS and then in MOSS so started preparing for the exam. i took the Exam 70-541 yesterday, at one instance during the exam i felt i will not be clearing it, but once the exam was done i cleared it by scoring 871/1000 . Guys one thing i would suggest you is never beleive 100% on dumps. while going for exam i also studied dumps but frankly speaking hardly 5 to 10 question came from the dump rest was completely different.

I had been working on sharepoint for quite a long time, its almost 1.5 years now, this helped me a lot in clearing the exam. So be sure that if you are plannign to write sharepoint exam you need to have hands on experience on it.  I read the follwing books

Ted Pattison (Ted Pattison Group); Daniel Larson 

In this book you can skip the Ajax Chapters has there are no questions in exam on ajax integration with sharepoint
This books doesnt cover all the chapter that  are required to clear WSS application development certification. You have to read Windows Sharepoint Services SDK

You cand download e-book for  Inside Microsoft Windows Sharepoint Services  from the below link

Download Inside Microsoft® Windows® SharePoint® Services 
Download Inside Microsoft® Windows® SharePoint® Services 

also go through the code samples specified in this book

2. Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services Software Development Kit.

This sdk will help you the most in clearing the exam,  i found mandy examples in this book where asked has question in the exam. Please go through all the chapters on webparts from this book, this will help you a lot in clearing the exam.
You can download the book from the below link
Download Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services Software Development Kit

you can go through the
Preperation Guide For Exam 70-541
Hope this post help you in preparing for the exam. Please leave comment if you are not able to download any of the books sepcified above
