Now I am also MCTS on .Net Framework 3.5 Windows Communication Foundation Applications (Exam Code-70-503)

From last few weeks, I was preparing for the exam to get the certification on MCTS- .Net Framework 3.5 Windows Communication Foundation Applications (Exam Code-70-503). Today I have successfully passed the exam with very good score. So now I have one more MCTS certification.

Though I had experience working on various development projects using WCF still I spent a lot of time on reading articles/books related to WCF for this exam.
