  • Hi Shriniket,
    Since you like working with C# and web technologies I would recommend pursuing the MCTS: Web Development certification.  To attain this certification you will need to pass two exams.  Exam 70-528 covers ASP.NET 2.0 related technologies.  Exam 70-536 covers all of the base framework classes.  Once you have passed both of these you can pursue your MCPD (Pro developer) certification in Web technologies.  Note that the 70-536 exam can be used towards your VS 2008 certifications as well. 

    If you are new to certification I think the 70-528 is the less complicated of the two exams.

    I hope this answers your question.
