MCAD and MCSD
Posted on 2004-08-14
Hello C# experts!
Finally, we have Microsoft training courses for MCAD in India, Bangalore.
I am a Delphi developer, who has started porting old Delphi applications to the .net.
Although I have self-studied (and asked at ex-ex) to get my job done, I thought it would be a nice idea to learn what MS expects perople to know about .net.
I would like to focus on C#.
So, can you give your opinions on how good is the Microsoft curriculum professionally? If I take training for MCAD courses, would it help me in tackling real-world problems?
And I have seen that these certifications become obselete very quickly. So, one question is how old is the current MCAD program, and is it on the verge of being replaced or would it be good for say another couple of years (the current course says it is an August 2002 thing)?
The course is broken up into following modules:
1. Visual C#
2. ASP .net
It's pretty long (10 days per module), so I intend to take one module each month and appear for the corresponding exam (And start the next module after I clear the exam!!).
I know that I can see MS's website for information, but I would like to have neutral and expert opinions on these.
Also, I would like to know the difference between MCAD and MCSD.
Looking forward to your opinions,
