  • Hi

    There is no direct path from MCAD to MCPD Web on 3.5

    You will need to do either start a fresh with 3 exams or do 2 upgrade exams to get to your chosen field.

    So here are your options

    Do exams in any order

    • 70-536 .NET Application Development Foundation
    • 70-562 MCTS ASP.NET 3.5
    • 70-564 MCPD Web Applications Develooper 3.5
    OR

    Do exams in any order but recommended in the following order

    • 70-551 Upgrade MCAD to MCPD Web Developer 2.0
    • 70-567 Upgrade MCPD Web Developer 2.0 to MCPD Web Developer 3.5
    Being honest, I would say your best bet is to start from scratch because even through it looks like 2 exams for the second option, its really 5 exams compressed into 2 for the sake of cost
