Default MCTS Certification Toolkit (exam 70-515)


There was a book on wrox.com title: “MCTS Certification Toolkit (exam 70-515): Web Application Development with Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0” ISBN-10: 0470932422, ISBN-13: 978-0470932421.

The details for this book is no longer visible on wrox.com however the details were visible in upcoming books page earlier.

I have ordered it on amazon.co.uk but release date were changed several times and now it is changed again from December 29 2012 to August 30 2013.

I know I won’t be able to sit in exam 70-515 after July 2013 as this will be expired in favour of new MCSD exams i.e. (Exam 70-486: Developing ASP.NET 4.5 MVC Web Applications).

My question is should I cancel my order that I placed on amazon.co.uk or should I wait for the book? Are you going to release book for newer exams or will this still be for older exam? Or no book for any exam at all?

Please advise,

Thanks for asking. Unfortunately, the book you are asking about has indeed been cancelled. Because of the new structure and focus of Microsoft's exams for .NET 4.5, we no longer found this exam to be a good investment. We are looking at the new exam structure and hope to be able to announce a book on the key exam within it and publish on it next year.
In the mean time, you should definitely cancel the order on the other book. Retailers should have the word soon that we have cancelled this and would be automatically cancelling these orders.
I apologize for any inconvenience.
