  • Hi Bharath,

    what exactly do you want to reach? You mentioned the 70-536 exam that you passed (Congratulation!). So I think you are on the Visual Studio 2008 path. (Details can be found at http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/certification/cert-vstudio.aspx#tab3)

    There you find 3 possibilities:

    1) MCPD WIndows Developer 3.5:
    For this you need to continue with these exams: 070-505 (Windows Forms) and 070-563 (PRO exam).

    2) MCPD ASP.Net Developer 3.5:
    For this you need to continue with these exams: 070-562 (ASP.Net) and 070-564 (PRO exam).

    3) MCPD Enterprise Applications 3.5:
    For this you need to continue with these exams 070-505, 070-562, 070-503, 070-561 (There is no real order in these!) and the 070-565 at the end.

    Of course: You could still think about switching to Visual Studio 2010 exams. You are not loosing anything and the number of exams is still the same. The only difference is, that there are only 2 MCPD titles and that you always need ADO.Net and WCF to become a MCPD. (Which makes sense. These are basic technologies and all professional developers should know them!)

    I hope this helped.

    With kind regards,

    Konrad

  • Dear Bharath BS,

    Most of the MCAD exam are retired. As you said you have passed 70-536 exam, so you can earn MCPD (Microsoft Certified Professional Developer) on VS 2005 or 2008.

    If you take another 2 exams 70-505 and 70-563, you will earn MCPD on Microsoft Visual Studio 2008

    I hopes this helps.


    Thanks and Regards, Bharath S.
