matshj from Sweden – 02 09 2013, 4:18 PM Report Spam Q57, I'v been readning about NetDataContractSerializer and DataContractSerializer and they seem to be closely related. Why use DataContractSerializer(answer D) and not NetDataContractSerializer (answer B) in this case? matshj from Sweden – 02 09 2013, 8:16 AM Report Spam So you get feedback now days on the answers? When I did my sql cert back in 2002 you just got a pass/fail in the test. Was there many that was wrong and where it other then the ones we have found in this VCE and the two earlier? Mike from United States – 02 09 2013, 3:09 AM Report Spam Sorry, should have been much more specific.I meant to say answers were not correct. The questions were exactly the same, but the answers were marked wrong. matshj from Sweden – 02 08 2013, 1:51 PM Report Spam With invalid, do you mean that there are new questions, not correct or wrong answers? Mike from United States – 02 08 2013, 1:02 PM Report Spam I guess that's both of our goal then! (:I completely agree, Win8 App is very confusing. Seems they changed a lot, I'm on the same boat as you. Anyway, Passed the exam today 840. I must say some questions in this dump are invalid(other than what the user's suggested), however, I have yet to find out which ones. matshj from Sweden – 02 08 2013, 9:11 AM Report Spam Mike: That's the goal for me… I get a raise when I get my MCSD. I have already started studing for the 484 test, but it's hard to find any books that covers all. And as I have to get started in coding Win 8 apps to. The 483 test is'n that hard(I hope) because I have been coding C# (on and off) sinse 2002. But win 8 apps, MVVM, XAML and all that is new to me. matshj from Sweden – 02 07 2013, 1:23 PM Report Spam Does anyone know if MS consider including Ascending as a wrong answer? Answer with and without Ascending will fullfill the requirment of the question. matshj from Sweden – 02 07 2013, 1:17 PM Report Spam Yea you are right… thanx for that one. Didnt see that one comming.loanQuery is a Linq.OrderedEnumerable. QQ from Netherlands – 02 07 2013, 10:54 AM Report Spam Q6 is wrong. You don't need to add ascending or descending. from amount in loadAmounts where amount % 2 == 0 orderby amount select amount is all you need. matshj from Sweden – 02 06 2013, 8:12 PM Report Spam I have updated the vce file with the corrections suggested comments in this and the one before. I have added a modified version of Q5 according to "No name"s suggestions. Hopefully it's up in a couple of hours. I have not made any changes to drag and drop questions. Brian from United Kingdom – 02 06 2013, 9:18 AM Report Spam The inclusion of the DataContract and DataMember attributes suggest that we should use the DataContractSerializer here. These attributes would not effect the XmlSerializer Geovani from United States – 02 06 2013, 8:12 AM Report Spam Could someone please verify (Exam A, Q57)?You need to serialize the Location object as XML. I think the answer is A. XmlSerializer?Source: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/815813 Brian from United Kingdom – 02 05 2013, 6:49 PM Report Spam Q62 also seems a bit suspect to me. B would be one way of doing it, but D would result in the CalculateInterest() method being in being un-callable from anywhere, under any build. I think B and F is the correct answer. (Meaning i agree with what matshj said earlier) Matshj from Sweden – 02 05 2013, 5:40 PM Report Spam Brian,I agree Brian from United Kingdom – 02 05 2013, 4:17 PM Report Spam I believe Q43 is wrong. Option B is the only once that actually makes a call to the addbook method matshj from Sweden – 02 05 2013, 11:56 AM Report Spam It's been confirmed that it's 100% valid. But that's no guarantee that MS doesnt add other questions and there is no guarantee that the answers in the file is correct. If this test is all you gonna study, you might pass the test but the cert is not worth sh*t… 5jeesh from India – 02 05 2013, 11:21 AM Report Spam Hi all, i am going to write the exam on coming saturday. Is this dump enough to study? Please confirm. matshj from Sweden – 02 04 2013, 8:48 AM Report Spam Q6, confirmed. matshj from Sweden – 02 04 2013, 8:46 AM Report Spam Q5: Conditions..-Return only orders that have an OrderDate value other than null. -Return only orders that were placed in the year specified in the OrderDate property or in a later year.It says nothing about not raising exceptions in the Q. So I'll go with A for now, but thanx for the input, if the question is in the test we'll be prepaired R from Tunisia – 02 03 2013, 7:53 PM Report Spam Q6 is not correct neither: tested with LinqPad. The answer is : from…where…orderby..ascending…select. No Name from Unknown – 02 03 2013, 4:11 PM Report Spam Question 5 is wrong. Answer A throws an exception when OrderDate is null.For A to be correct, it should be: order.OrderDate != null && order.OrderDate.Value.Year > = yearFor C to be correct, it should be: order.OrderDate.HasValue && order.OrderDate.Value.Year > = year.I believe there is a typo in answer C and the testers want as to check if we are aware of the HasValue property. Q58 is E. SortedList since HashTable is not sorted matshj from Sweden – 02 03 2013, 12:11 PM Report Spam I mean A of cource… matshj from Sweden – 02 03 2013, 11:57 AM Report Spam Yes, Q5 correct answer is 5 Alex from New Zealand – 02 03 2013, 6:41 AM Report Spam How about Q5?I believe that it should be A. matshj from Sweden – 02 02 2013, 9:15 AM Report Spam Thanx, Alex, Azerus and Koks What about Q58 any one? Alex from New Zealand – 02 01 2013, 9:38 PM Report Spam 2 matshj Agree about Q62 Azerus from Tunisia – 02 01 2013, 10:59 AM Report Spam Hi matshj, Theses questions are 100% valid until now enjoy Koks from United Kingdom – 02 01 2013, 2:02 AM Report Spam This question in %100 valid. I took the exam yesterday matshj from Sweden – 01 31 2013, 7:46 PM Report Spam Q62:(As JinG also wrote in an ealier post): Is the answer realy B, D? I also think B,F is the correct answer? Can someone confirm? matshj from Sweden – 01 31 2013, 7:21 PM Report Spam Q58: -Internally store a key and a value for each collection item. -Provide objects to Iterators in ascending order based on the key. -Ensure that item are accessible by zero-based index or by key. Im not sure but shouldn't the answer be E(SortedList) instead of D(HashTable)? matshj from Sweden – 01 31 2013, 6:52 PM Report Spam I was just going to take a look at one you sent to me. I'v been sick so I havn't been able to come around to it until now.I'm going to take the test with in 2weeks so after that I can tell you if its valid When are you going to take the test?
