    Well, regardless of which track you end up doing, you have to do the 70-536, so you might as well start with that.

    Quote from MS: Exam 70-536: TS: Microsoft .NET Framework – Application Development Foundation. This exam is the foundation prerequisite for all Visual Studio 2005 and Visual Studio 2008 MCTS and MCPD certifications.

    After you pass that exam, then think about what route/track you're going to do.

    The 70-536 has the advantage of not being version specific...

    Quote from MSIf you are a .NET 2.0 developer, you do not need to learn .NET 3.5 to pass Exam 70-536; conversely, if you are a .NET 3.5 developer, you do not need to review .NET 2.0 to pass the exam.

    Good luck with your studies & exam :)
