  • You need both exams to qualify for the MCTS, no matter the order.

  • There are no silly questions when someone wants to learn something: we're here to help you! ;-)

    Both the exams we're talking about are part of the Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist Certification (http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/certification/mcts.aspx), that proves your ability to successfully implement, build on, troubleshoot, and debug a particular Microsoft technology; both the exams count as credit toward the MCTS: .NET Framework 3.5, Windows Forms Applications Certification.
    If you want to get the MCTS certification you must pass all the exams that are part of that certification plan: you can find a complete list of ths MCTS Certifications at the following web address


    As you can see, every certification consists of a set of exam you have to pass to get certified.

    You can get more informations about the 70-505 exam at the following web address


    and more informations about the 70-536 exam at the following web address


    along with suggestions about the preparations materials you need to study and pass the exams.

  • Thanks once again........ I have checked the above links, found diff material for the exams. I am planning to go ahead 70-536 exam first and for this, i m planning to use the 'MCTS Self-Paced Training Kit (Exam 70-536): Microsoft® .NET Framework--Application Development Foundation, Second Edition'  (instead of confusing with using diff/many materials) and this kit contains practice tests also... Hope this material is enough for the exam. Please guide.
