MCTS in VS 2005 vs 208 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Would it be better to get VS 2005 or 2008 certified? Seeing as how most companies dont upgrade for awhile, should is start studying for 2005 now?

  • It is a view held by most peoply ,we should site the latest exams .or keep pace with the latest technology,server 2008.

    HOwever ,I think we should keep pace with the demand of the market .
    So, I recommend you can consider VS 2005 firstly,and then upgrade your VS 2005 credentials to vS 2008.

    Of course ,this is my point .

    A lot of places have upgraded to 3.5 because the CLR is the same from 2.0 to 3.5 meaning that most web shops didnt have to change too much unlike the move from 1.1 to 2.0 (new app pools for example)

    I would say go with 2008. You can still develop for .NET 2.0 in Visual Studio 2008 (multi targetting built into the IDE) and nearly all the information is the same. Its just the new additions to the framework really.

    Again it depends on what type of company you are targetting. If they are large software house, they will probably be running 2008, smaller less mobile companies may not be up to that IDE version.

    Either way start with exam 70-536 as it forms the basis of all the .NET 2.0/3.5 certifications. Once you have that passed you can decide on which framework version you want to persue
