      For your certification, first of all you need to understand the exam numbers you need to successfully complete. Now you can go for SQL Server 2008, because 2005 is outdated. You need to select the exam from three different ones according to your profile. You can do it from the following link.

    http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/certification/cert-sql-server.aspx#tab2

    Once you confirmed with the exam, you can find the trainings in microsoft or you can get the study materials from microsft press. You can prepare for the exam with those materials and register for the exam with any prometric exam center.
