This MVA course uses content from previous MVA deliveries on HTML5 and Windows App Store development to present coverage of the MTA 98-375 Exam outline. New developers looking to write applications for Windows 8/8.1 using HTML5, CSS, and JavaScript will find this MVA collection a great starting point for understanding what these technologies provide for app development. Although this course covers the key aspects of the MTA exam, it is not a complete exam prep or study guide that will allow you pass the 98-375 exam without further study and hands-on experience.
