  • A good place to start is the Microsoft Learning web site: http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/certification/cert-overview.aspx 

    Since you are a developer, the Visual Studio-track is probably your best choice. Here is an overview of the available certifications for Visual Studio 2010:

    http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/certification/visual-studio-all.aspx#tab2 

    As your primary experience is with web development, I would recommend focussing on these certificates: MCTS: .NET Framework 4, Web Applications, MCTS: .NET Framework 4, Service Communication Applications, MCTS: .NET Framework 4, Data Access (If you click on the exam on the Microsoft Learning page, you will see a list of all the covered topics and available materials)
