Microsoft Certification Studies: 70-536

Today, I'm starting studies for Microsoft .NET certification. It looks like the first step in the journey to any certification path is the 70-536: Microsoft .NET Framework Application Development Foundation.

First question that immediately came to mind: is the test given in C# or VB? Part of the beauty of the .NET Framework is the underlying CLR, BCL (base class libraries) and language-independence. However, this has also been a bit of a challenge for me during past .NET development projects.

I'm a C# guy, myself. Sometimes I'll find excellent blog entries, posts, or forum responses of what I want to do, but the examples are in VB. Now, I can stumble through VB code examples, but it feels like reading text in a foreign language, whereas reading C# feels like reading something in my native language (English).

I found the answer to my question here:

I'll definitely be selecting C# for my exam.
