, 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?Saturday, February 09, 2013 4:18 PM UTmatshj 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.<br /> <br /> Was there many that was wrong and where it other then the ones we have found in this VCE and the two earlier?Saturday, February 09, 2013 8:16 AM UTMike, should have been much more specific.<br /> I meant to say answers were not correct. The questions were exactly the same, but the answers were marked wrong.Saturday, February 09, 2013 3:09 AM UTmatshj invalid, do you mean that there are new questions, not correct or wrong answers?Friday, February 08, 2013 1:51 PM UTMike guess that's both of our goal then! (:<br /> I completely agree, Win8 App is very confusing. Seems they changed a lot, I'm on the same boat as you.<br /> <br /> 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.Friday, February 08, 2013 1:02 PM UTmatshj That's the goal for me.. I get a raise when I get my MCSD. :D<br /> 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.Friday, February 08, 2013 9:11 AM UTmatshj anyone know if MS consider including Ascending as a wrong answer? Answer with and without Ascending will fullfill the requirment of the question.Thursday, February 07, 2013 1:23 PM UTmatshj you are right.. thanx for that one. Didnt see that one comming.<br /> loanQuery is a Linq.OrderedEnumerable.Thursday, February 07, 2013 1:17 PM UTQQ is wrong. You don't need to add ascending or descending.<br /> <br /> from amount in loadAmounts where amount % 2 == 0 orderby amount select amount<br /> <br /> is all you need.Thursday, February 07, 2013 10:54 AM UTmatshj 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.Wednesday, February 06, 2013 8:12 PM UTBrian inclusion of the DataContract and DataMember attributes suggest that we should use the DataContractSerializer here. These attributes would not effect the XmlSerializerWednesday, February 06, 2013 9:18 AM UTGeovani someone please verify (Exam A, Q57)?<br /> You need to serialize the Location object as XML.<br /> <br /> I think the answer is A. XmlSerializer?<br /> Source:, February 06, 2013 8:12 AM UTBrian 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. <br /> <br /> I think B and F is the correct answer. (Meaning i agree with what matshj said earlier)Tuesday, February 05, 2013 6:49 PM UTMatshj,I agreeTuesday, February 05, 2013 5:40 PM UTBrian believe Q43 is wrong. Option B is the only once that actually makes a call to the addbook methodTuesday, February 05, 2013 4:17 PM UTmatshj'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..Tuesday, February 05, 2013 11:56 AM UT5jeesh all, i am going to write the exam on coming saturday. Is this dump enough to study? Please confirm.Tuesday, February 05, 2013 11:21 AM UTmatshj, confirmed.Monday, February 04, 2013 8:48 AM UTmatshj <br /> Conditions.<br /> -Return only orders that have an OrderDate value other than null. <br /> -Return only orders that were placed in the year specified in the OrderDate property or in a later year.<br /> 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 :)Monday, February 04, 2013 8:46 AM UTR is not correct neither: tested with LinqPad. The answer is :, February 03, 2013 7:53 PM UTNo Name 5 is wrong. Answer A throws an exception when OrderDate is null.<br /> For A to be correct, it should be: order.OrderDate != null && order.OrderDate.Value.Year &gt; = year<br /> For C to be correct, it should be: order.OrderDate.HasValue && order.OrderDate.Value.Year &gt; = year.<br /> I believe there is a typo in answer C and the testers want as to check if we are aware of the HasValue property.<br /> <br /> Q58 is E. SortedList since HashTable is not sortedSunday, February 03, 2013 4:11 PM UTmatshj mean A of cource..Sunday, February 03, 2013 12:11 PM UTmatshj, Q5 correct answer is 5Sunday, February 03, 2013 11:57 AM UTAlex about Q5?<br /> I believe that it should be A.Sunday, February 03, 2013 6:41 AM UTmatshj, Alex, Azerus and Koks :)<br /> What about Q58 any one?Saturday, February 02, 2013 9:15 AM UTAlex matshj <br /> <br /> Agree about Q62Friday, February 01, 2013 9:38 PM UTAzerus matshj,<br /> <br /> Theses questions are 100% valid until now :) enjoyFriday, February 01, 2013 10:59 AM UTKoks question in %100 valid. <br /> I took the exam yesterdayFriday, February 01, 2013 2:02 AM UTmatshj JinG also wrote in an ealier post): <br /> Is the answer realy B, D? I also think B,F is the correct answer? Can someone confirm?Thursday, January 31, 2013 7:46 PM UTmatshj <br /> -Internally store a key and a value for each collection item. <br /> -Provide objects to Iterators in ascending order based on the key. <br /> -Ensure that item are accessible by zero-based index or by key.<br /> <br /> Im not sure but shouldn't the answer be E(SortedList) instead of D(HashTable)?Thursday, January 31, 2013 7:21 PM UTmatshj 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.<br /> I'm going to take the test with in 2weeks so after that I can tell you if its valid ;)<br /> <br /> When are you going to take the test?Thursday, January 31, 2013 6:52 PM UT
