Preparing for 70-521 transition test..

For me, panic is the best motivator 🙂 Lately had to brush up my WPF/EF/WCF skills trying to prepare for the upgrade test for the MCPD Windows Developer (that I’m about to take tomorrow morning…)

Kind of learned several new things – no matter how long you have worked with some framework, it really pays up to pick up a book on the subject and read from the basics. There’s always something you haven’t realized before or find a new way to use some classes.

I guess the same goes with the Windows Phone. After tomorrow I probably pick up Charles Petzolds excellent e-book ( and just read it through and see if I’ll be enlightened 🙂
