MCSD Questions.

Hi Experts,
I am planning to start prepare for MCSD in C# and .NET. I have few basic questions about MCSD.
1). How many questions are there in each exam? For example 70-315, 70-316 etc.

2). What is the total points per exam? How much should I score to pass the exam?

3). Is it possible to get some sample questions for the MCSD exam 70-315, 70-316 and 70-320. I searched in the internet, but no use.

  The no of question around 56, I finished the MCSD last year, but at that time there's no passing score, the result told you if you pass or fail only, but I think these days the passing scores around 700

for more info about the exam look at

if you would to buy books to prepare for the exams, I highly recommanded the series from Que publishing by Amit Kalani, each chapter has a review questions and include CD that have a trial edition of PrepLogic exam simulation, it was the best books I read for the certification

HTH, and good luck :-)
mnasman, they changed it a little during the last 6 months maybe. Now you get the score and also the passing score. The total is always 1000 and the passing score of the last two exams I went to was 700 (so 70%). They even give you your score in the different areas of the exam...

I know that but wasn't sure, I will ask my students today, some of them passed exams in this month ;-)

I finished my MSCD about 2 months ago (took a year or so). The first 3 exams I had the same as you: only passed/failed. But the last two I had also a passing score, my score and scores for differents subareas.
Read that MCSD, not MSCD...

Is it required to take the exams in the order like 70-315, then 70-316 or Can I take the exams in any order. I am planning to take 70-316 first then 70-315 since I am mostly experienced in windows applications.
The order is irrelevant, you can take them in whatever order you want
