  • If you are a beginner, you probably do NOT want to start with an exam. You can sign up for classes, or maybe read some books, and then, AFTER you know how to program, you may consider taking an exam to accredit your knowledge. If you wish to take a Microsoft exam, then you first need to choose a specialty, for instance, the exam for Web Applications is different from the exam for Desktop Applications. You can see the available certifications and the exams needed for each one of them here:

    http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/certification/cert-vstudio.aspx#tab1

    If you follow the links to one of the exams, such as 70-515 for Web Applications, you will find a section named "Audience profile" where it lists the type of knowledge that the candidates are expected to have. You will notice that some "experience" is expected.

  • Please have a look at the Microsoft Visual Studio Certification Paths

    You can start with 70-536 .NET Framework Programming which is a base exam for all .NET certifications.

     

    Hmm .. I just want to correct this a little. The 70-536 is not a base exam for ALL .Net certifications. The 70-536 is only part of the certification lines for Visual Studio 2005 and Visual Studio 2008. So you do not need it for either the old MCAD / MCSD exams nor the new Visual Studio 2010 exams. (This is important, because we get all the questions regarding 70-536 over and over here!)

    And I would always refer to the MS site when looking for certifications. Other people can easily make errors. So I would suggest http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/certification/cert-vstudio.aspx as a good starting point (as Alberto posted already!).

    And I fully agree to Alberto: As a beginner yous hould work on the development skills first. The exams normaly expect about 2 years experience. So just concentarte on learning the language you like first and get some decent practice through some projects.

    With kind regards,

    Konrad

  • Hmm. Why do you think that the Framework 4.0 exams are still in beta?

    You can book all the exams at prometric.com, so AFAIK they are not in beta (for quite some time).

    The 2 upgrade exams wasn't available for some time but I even saw them now when I checked the site.

    (And if I look at http://blogs.msdn.com/b/gerryo/archive/2010/03/17/register-for-visual-studio-2010-beta-exams.aspx, the beta was just April 2010!)

    With kind regards,
