  1. Hi,
    can anyone tell me whether the MCSD on Microsoft Visual Studio 6.0 has
    been canceled or not? Thanks!

  2. No, once you are an MCSD of Microsoft Visual Studio 6, you'll always be an
    MCSD on Visual Studio 6. However, after awhile that certification will
    become less valuable. For example, you can only use the recent upgrade exams
    if you are an MCSD .NET. They won't work if you are an MCSD in VS6.

  3. Thank you! In fact, I am not a MCSD now, but I want to be one. I have
    developped software using the VS6 for several years. Now I want to take the
    exam of MCSD, but I don't know whether the MCSD exam for VS6 exists of not.

  5. Adam:
    Sorry I misunderstood your question. All of the exams for MCSD on Visual
    Studio 6 have been cancelled, so you no longer can become an MCSD for Visual
    Studio 6, just .Net.

    However, the Microsoft Office Specialist Exam for Access 2000, 2002, and
    2003 are still available. You might want to take one of those exams. Access
    uses a modification of Visual Basic 6 called VBA (Visual Basic for
    Applications). The MOS exams, unfortunately, do not test VBA.

    Another option for VB6 certification would be www.brainbench.com. Some
    employers actually require brainbench certification since they don't have the
    problems with braindumps that Microsoft certifications have.

    Hope that helps.

  6. Thank you for your elaborate answer. I have decided to prepare the exam for
    MCSD on .NET. Nice to meet you!
