MCPD to MCPD 3.5 / 2008 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everybody,
    i just wanna know, if there is an upgrade path to MCPD 3.5 (VS2008) with only 3 upgrade exams? Currently i am just a MCSD .net Developer but i want upgrade with exams 70-551, 70-552 & 70-554. So i will earn MCPD: Windows & Web & Enterprise Developer only with three exams instead of four. Is there for upgrade to MCPD 3.5 (VS2008) an easy way like for the upgrade to MCPD 2.0 ?

    best regards

  • Hi Hendrik

    There is no upgrade from MCSD.NET to MCPD 3.5 as normally upgrades dont skip versions.

    If you up to 2.0 then you can do 4 exams from 2.0 to 3.5 to get the full suite of MCPD certs on both 2.0 and 3.5

    Other than that you are left with starting from scratch with .NET 3.5 and taking a total of 8 exams to get to get all the MCPDs on 3.5 ... so its a choice for you of 7 exams resulting in a total of 13 certs or 8 exams resulting in 7 certs.

    Hope that helps
