SharePoint 2013 MCSD Path, Exam 70-486 made official?

As you probably know, I have been blogging a lot about the SharePoint 2013 MCSD Path. Why? Because Microsoft still did not release any official information about it!  Even if the 70-488 and 70-489 have been made publicly available on June 20 2013, Microsoft still did not release the full path!

MCSD Website

2 days after the Exam 488 and 489 went live, still no official word of the SharePoint 2013 Certification Path

Previously, I had almost official information from J. Seymour that the 70-486 will be the mystery 4th exam that Microsoft never announced.  Even if the comment J. Seymour made on my blog on January 31st was 100% correct until now, I could not confirm it until Microsoft Learning announced it on their website.   Today I want to announce you that even if it’s still not there, we are 1 step forward.

On the Official Microsoft Certification Planner,  we now see the 70-486 exam as a requirement to the SharePoint 2013 MCSD.  Even if this is a step forward, the exam names for the 70-488 and 70-489 are still not correct,  therefor I cannot say it’s a “finished product” , however it is one step forward!

Here is a Screenshot of the Certification Planner taken June 20, 2013!

Phew! You almost scared the s— out of me! 🙂
I spent a long time preparing to take 486.

I don’t really understand why do we need to make 70-486 to get the MCSD, am not an MVC developer and this will be hard for me. If I don’t make it then I would think MCSE or MCSM. Dilema is that I did 70-480 already.

It’s Microsoft :). They want to make certifications harder to make sure the people who are certified are really good in all the aspects of the product!
