This book will provide C# developers the core knowledge and skills to pass the MCSD 70-483 certification exam: Programming in C#. Each chapter covers one of the core subject domains---referred to as "objectives"---that comprise the essential body of knowledge for this examination. The authors include experienced trainers who advised Microsoft on the development of its certification programs; they understand both the objectives and what it takes to master them. They will take a unique tutorial approach to this book not offered by competitors. Rather than just teaching readers how to answer a set of exam questions, the authors will provide them with an understanding of the underlying concepts and skills needed to succeed as professional C# programmers. In short, developers will not just learn how to pass a test---they'll learn how to become better C# developers! Each lesson in the book includes a step-by-step lab tutorial, inviting readers to practice what they've just learned in order to reinforce learning. The companion website will include solutions to all of the labs, so students can evaluate their progress as they work through the training kit. The accompanying website will include: More than 100 simulated test questions and answers covering all exam objectives Solutions to the hands-on labs presented in the book Complete sample code Chapters from related Wrox C# titles for more in-depth coverage.
