Currently I am working on SharePoint 2013 environment for over a year!

I am willing to get the SharePoint certification and I want to know the difference between the 70-331 and the 70-488 certifications!

Please suggest the best SharePoint 2013 certifications to prove my skills and which one I should go first?

  • Don't you mean 70-488? 70-448 is about MS SQL Server 2008... – Evariste Jan 31 '17 at 17:21
  • Yes I am updating my question, I mean 70-488 – N.Sahraoui Feb 1 '17 at 9:15

70-331 (Core Solutions of Microsoft SharePoint Server 2013) is about installing, configuring and maintaining a SharePoint farm. It's not about developing solutions (despite the name); it's about administration.
Note: it's not a SharePoint end-user certification, it's an admin one.

70-488 (Developing Microsoft SharePoint Server 2013 Core Solutions) is about dev and customizations. So it's all about WSP solutions development, add-ins (apps), Visual Studio, features, C#, server and client APIs, etc.

So, are you a dev or an IT guy?! :)

  • Thank you @Evariste for your quick answer!! I think I need tp prepare for the 70-488 certification since I am a SharePoint Developer. However I have a question for you: As you see here There are 4 exams, am I obliged to pass the "Programming in HTML5 with JavaScript and CSS3" and "Developing ASP.NET MVC Web Applications" exams before going to the SP core solutions 2013 ?? or I can go directly to the SharePoint?? – N.Sahraoui Feb 1 '17 at 9:17
