Book Review: Microsoft Silverlight 4 Development (70-506) Certification Guide

I have been reading the “MCTS: Microsoft Silverlight 4 Development (70-506) Certification Guide” for the last few weeks now and can speak to its simple approach towards getting you ready for the actual certification exam.

The book contains various topics from the introduction to XAML, to creating custom user controls and even more advanced topics like animations via storyboards. It also touches the out-of-browser experience that was introduced with Silverlight 3 and helps you create such applications. The book also includes sample test questions to help you prepare for the actual exam.

Overall, I have enjoyed reading the book and believe it has increased my knowledge of Silverlight. I have built several Windows Phone and Windows 8 apps which make use of Silverlight/XAML and this book has definitely sharpened my skills in some areas.

The book can be downloaded from Packt Publishing's website at
