I'm preparing to take the Windows Applications Development with Microsoft .NET Framework 4 exam, but I'm not sure how many questions are on it. I know the exam should only take 90 minutes or so, but how many questions would I have to answer? 50? 100? More?

Are you asking how many questions this exam has? Or are you asking how many questions you need to answer correctly in order to pass the exam? Please clarify. – Manfred Oct 29 '11 at 5:44

I passed the test today with 850 points out of 1000. – user18404 Oct 30 '11 at 9:36
Congratulations, Andrew! – Manfred Oct 30 '11 at 21:43

The number of questions varies somewhat, but tends to be in the neighbourhood of 60.

If I had to guess, I'd say 58 +/- 3 covers 95% of the tests given. – blueberryfields Oct 29 '11 at 6:47
