Training Kit para o Exame 70-502

1/9/2008 5:39:00 PM By Felipe Pessoto

No site da Microsoft já consta o novo Training Kit para o Exame 70-502 que está em Beta. Esse exame é MCTS para Microsoft® .NET Framework 3.5—Windows Presentation Foundation. Estranho ser 3.5 pois o WPF é do .Net 3.0, deve ser pra não parecer que é um exame antigo. Lembrando que o Kit ainda nao está à venda, mas em breve, provavelmente quando o exame sair do Beta.

O exame 70-503 também está em Beta, mas o Training Kit dele ainda não foi divulgado.
