Ok, this is an official rant about the .Net Framework 2.0 70-536 Self-Paced Training Kit.
I understand that writing a book is difficult, I understand that creating 302 practice test is also difficult. Buy my god, people are using these materials as study aids to pass a cert. Editors, proof read the DAMN book will you. How am I supposed to study when the practice test has errors?
Here is an example:
Blah, blah, blah about launching a thread in a way to minimize the impact on performance, choose all the answers that apply.
Answer B is as follows
ThreadStart myThreadDelegate = new ThreadStart( ThreadWork.DoWork);
Thread myThread = new Thread( myThreadDelegate );
The Thread.StartLowPriority method does not exist.
WHAT, if StartLowPriority does not exist, they why are you telling me that it is the correct answer... WTF
I guess I would cut them some slack, but today our group came across 2 out of 30 questions that were WRONG.
How am I going to feel confident if my study materials are WRONG?
Rant Over, Till next time
