MCTS or MCPD

Discussion in 'Microsoft Certification' started by =?Utf-8?B?ZW50ZXI=?=, Oct 3, 2007.

  1. Hi,

    I have exposure to developing both WinForm 2.0, ASP.NET 2.0 using C# 2.0 and
    I'm working on DOT NET 2.

    As I don't have any technical degree, I want to obtain microsoft
    certification on .NET platform. I'm confused which one should I opt MCTS or
    MCPD.

    Please suggest what could be better?

    Thanks!

  2. You can't get an MCPD without first getting an MCTS.
    The MCTS consists of:
    - for Web: 70-528 and 70-536
    - for Windows: 70-526 and 70-536
    - for Enterprise: 70-529 and 70-536
    The MCPD consists of:
    - for Web: 70-528, 70-536, and 70-547
    - for Windows: 70-526, 70-536, and 70-548
    - for Enterprise: 70-526, 70-528, 70-529, 70-536, and 70-549
    I would recommend taking the 70-536 exam first, if you are not sure of what
    specialization you want. However, the 70-536 by itself will not give you a
    certification, whereas taking the 70-52x exam will make you a Microsoft
    Certified Professional.
    Best wishes in your certification studies.
