    I want to get MCSD certification and I am wondering if somebody knows which
    company offers good training or has self training CDs/DVDs?
    I found some website in google, but I don't know which one is the best.
    I do appreciate your help.

    For 70-315/70-316/70-320 (which will count towards MCSD and certify you as an
    MCAD as well), Que's training guide by Amit Kalani is an excellent source.
    For 70-300, most of the reviews/sites point to Exam-Cram2 from Que and
    possibly MS self-paced training kit.

    Also, check out - a great site that provides links
    to the relevant topics in MSDN.

    Good Luck!

    So you don't recommend Cds?

    I haven't used any of the CDs so I can't comment. I used Kalani's book for
    70-315 and am using it now for 70-316/70-320. Though it is a very bulky read
    (1000+ pages) it's very well written and easy to read. I think Kalani + MSDN
    (for a few topics that are not covered in Kalani's book) + Practice Tests
    should be enough. Check out the reviews at Amazon for all the books. Some
    reviewers have mentioned the topics that need additional reference from MSDN.
    For 70-315, you need MSDN for ADO.NET, Security and XML.

    Good Luck!

    You do find a lot of the same content is covered in all exams. In particular
    ADO.NET Security and XML.

    what about Transcender's tests?
    are they any good?
    has anyone played with them?

    I've one more Question. Please answer. If I want to MCAD, am I need to do it
    only in one track(for say C# or VB.Net)? What I feel is If I do few papers in
    VB.Net & few in C#.Net, then it will be proof that I am able to do both
    VB.Net & C#.Net. In that case can I get MCAD.

    eg., If I do 70-315(C#.Net) & 70-310(VB.Net) & 70-229, can I get MCAD?
