Resources:

1. If you are new to WPF and would like to have a basic, clear and through knowledge of the the core concepts of WPF, I would recommend Illustrated WPF book by Daniel Solis.

2. MCTS 70-511 Training KIT is also very much helpful to answer most of the questions in the exam.

3. I have referred WPF 4.5 cook book, which has many code samples to get clarity about the concepts and to learn the advanced concepts.

4.The links provided in the MCTS 70-511 exam link below for preparation are also important.

you can visit any of the prometric websites to register for the exam. At some places like hyderabad, NIIT centers also provide the facility to write the exam. Actually I wrote in my Company, where they took care of everything from registration for the exam till the score card.

You can call the Prometric centers directly and get the information.

I was charged 4200 Rs. for exam with second shot(two attempts, if you dont qualify in one attempt).

Preparation time is based on how much experience you already have developing WPF applications. Minimum one month is required to grasp all the topics well.
