  • It depends on which direction you want to go, but it would be best to start with an MCTS

    Microsoft Visual Studio

    2008 (Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5)

    MCTS: Three options for developers who want to demonstrate their technical expertise in using the .NET Framework 3.5; six specialty areas are available: Windows Presentation Foundation, Windows Communication Foundation, Windows Workflow Foundation, Windows Forms, ASP.NET, and ADO.NET

    MCPD: Builds on an MCTS prerequisite(s) and is designed for developers who want to demonstrate their expertise in using Visual Studio 2008 for one of three specific job roles: Windows Developer, ASP.NET Developer, or Enterprise Application Developer

     

    2005 (Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0)

    MCTS: For developers who want to demonstrate their technical expertise using the Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0; three specialty areas are available: Web Applications, Windows Applications, and Distributed Applications

    MCPD: For developers who want to demonstrate their advanced skills in one or more of three job-role tracks: Web Developer, Windows Developer, and Enterprise Applications Developer

     

    Microsoft .NET Framework

    Microsoft Certified Application Developer (MCAD): For developers who want to demonstrate their technical expertise using Microsoft Visual Studio, the Microsoft .NET Framework, and Web services

    Microsoft Certified Solutions Developer (MCSD): For developers who want to demonstrate their advanced skills designing enterprise solutions by using Microsoft development tools and technologies, including the Microsoft .NET Framework

  • Please be aware that the MCSD.NET and MCAD are now retired certs (the requisite exams are not available anymore)

    I would start with exam 70-536 which forms the base for all certs on .NET 2.0 and 3.5
