    Hi All,

    I am a beginner in Visual Studio world, have a basic knowledge of Visual
    Basic. I am considering learning Visual and then give MCSD exam.
    Can someone point me to right steps to achieve my goal. Should i just focus
    on learning Visual Basic for now and when i am confident with it, proceed
    with MCSD preparation?

    And any good books for Visual and MCSD will help.

    Thanks!.. for your reply.

  2. As a "beginner" with Visual Studio, I would guide you away from the
    MCAD/MCSD exams, which focus on VS2003 and .NET Framework v1.1, and guide
    you towards the new MCTS/MCPD certifications based on .NET v2.0/v3.5, and
    Visual Studio 2008.

    There's no point in getting caught up in learning retro-versions of
    development IDEs, or deprecated versions of the .NET Framework.

    Here's the first place you should start:
