    Hi,

    i am planing to start study for the Microsoft exam MCSD very soon. just
    wondering, isn't it a good idea to go for MCPD exam which is latest and
    has less exams.

    Well, MCSD shows previous experience... although if you are willing to do
    the beta exams, it might be worth while to do the MCPD right now. :) Since
    the beta exams are free, then it probably is the best way to go. (They are
    tougher than the MCSD ones, though!)

    My thoughts on the matter, as already given in the Discussion Thread below is
    study the new MCPD exams. If you are going to invest effort in studying for
    accreditation you may as well expend the effort on learning subject matter
    that will keep your skills current. The new exams will be based on the new
    Net 2.0 platform and these are the skills that will be in demand increasingly
    in the future.

    In Additional study the new MCPD exams will count towards accrediation in
    other specialist errors for example Architect Accreditation.

  4. Also, I remember reading somewhere that passing the MCSD.NET upgrade beta
    exams will get you "MCPD Enterprise Developer, Charter Member" as a title.
    As I think "Charter Member" has a nice ring to it, I went ahead and took the
    two upgrade exams...
    They sure are.
