    Hello Friends,

    I had passed 70-536 and my status was MCP. Now I have cleared 70-540 but
    on its page it states that "Required Exams for MCTS: Windows Mobile 5.0
    Applications (One Exam Required)"..but its also written that

    Credit toward certification

    When you pass the TS: Microsoft Windows Mobile 5.0 – Application Development
    exam, you achieve Microsoft Certified Professional status. You also earn
    credit toward the following certification:
    • MCTS: Windows Mobile 5.0 Applications

    so now.. i am confused..as i already had MCP (0fcourse for .NET 2.0 full
    framework).. and now i have cleared this 70-540..what is my credit..do i have
    2 MCP credit or one MCP (earlier one) and MCTS(mobile)??

    please guide me people.. I am really very confused..

    thanks..

    The title "Microsoft Certified Professional", in addition to referring to a
    collection of certifications on older products, is now also a generic title
    that refers to all persons who have passed any one exam in any of the
    several and various Microsoft certification programs.

    When you passed the 70-536 you completed one of two requirements for one of
    three different MCTS certifications:
    • Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist: .NET Framework 2.0 Web
    Applications
    • Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist: .NET Framework 2.0 Windows
    Applications
    • Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist: .NET Framework 2.0 Distributed
    Applications

    When you passed the 70-540 you completed one of =one= requirement for a
    completely different MCTS certification:•
    • Microsoft Windows Mobile 5.0 - Application Development


    If you were to follow the hyperlinked "Microsoft Certified Professional" in
    that cite from the 70-540 page, you'd end up at
    http://www.microsoft.com/learning/mcp/mcp/default.mspx

    which is the Home Page of the entire Microsoft Certification program.
