Getting certified is always a good new year’s resolution for any developer. My goal for this year is to nail the exam 70-483 : Programming in C#.
Since the exam is quite new, the preparation kit is not out yet, you can pre-order it from Amazon and expect to get it later in April 2013.
The exam covers C# 5.0 and the .Net Framework 4.5, so the Pro C# 5.0 and the .Net 4.5 Framework book could be a very good prep material.
When searching for some study guides, I found this interesting post by Andreas Hammar where you can found MSDN study links that cover most of the exam parts.
And who said Twitter is useless ? Look what I found while writing my post :
The programming in C# Jump Start follows the criteria for the exam 70-483, it is tailored for intermediary to seasoned developers looking to bulk up on C# or for a refresher on core concepts and features.
Hopefully this post will help many others who, just like me, are surfing the Net to find some materials to prepare for the 70-483 exam.
