    Hi All,

    I'm planning on taking the VB path. Just wondering which
    exam is probably the best to start with.

    I am relatively new to .NET, so I'm wondering if its
    better to start with 70-300, or do 70-305, 70-306.

    I know this has been asked also, but I've been looking at
    the QUE and the MS Press books. Both seem like a good
    choice, though the QUE books are a little more pricey. Any

    Thx for your time...

    Go for the desktop apps one first... Even in this online world, still the
    majority of commercial applications are desktop orientated...

    As for the books, I've found the QUE one by Mike Gunderloy to be an
    excellent book... Essentially a VB version of the excellent Amit Kalani

  4. Another angle, though not necessarily true, is to go for the one that's more
    closely associated with your experience. If you've been a web developer,
    start with that one, or desktop if that's been the bulk of your experience.

    Being a career-switcher, coming from a consulting background, I went for
    70-300 first. To me, it's nice to get one under your belt before you start
    tackling material you're not as familiar with.
