Microsoft Certification - .Net, VS 2008, SQL Server RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have 3yrs experience with .Net, Visual Studio, C#, SQL Server.

    I am looking to begin getting certifications.

    I am not sure where to begin. Do I begin with MCTS or with MCPD?

    Thanks.

  • OK. I found the pdf doc detailing certs. So I begin with MCTS and first exam is 70-511.

    Can anyone recommend any good learning materials for this exam? - websites, books, articles, etc.

    Amazon reviews are pretty poor for the MCTS Training kits.

    I don't know what Amazon reviews you have been reading, but my own students usually tell me that they find these Training kits to be quite good. Unfortunately the training kit for 70-511 is not expected to be released until February 7:
