Perhaps the biggest trouble spot on Exam 70-506 is that it is easy to devote all of your study efforts to the more difficult topics and forget that there is some relatively basic material covered on the exam. For example, you will need to know how to arrange content with panels and how to implement controls such as text boxes, buttons, and check boxes. These are easy topics to master, but you cannot overlook them if you want to pass this exam.
Probably the best way to prepare for this exam is to take advantage of all the resources that Microsoft makes available to you. For example, Microsoft offers a Silverlight 4 Training Course that you can download for free. This training course contains whitepapers and hands on labs, and it can go a very long way toward helping you to prepare for the 70-506 exam.
