    I want to get MCSD certification.I realize that VB6 is
    going to be retired soon. I worked with Vb6, some extent
    prepared for 70-176. Whereas about .net I have no Idea.
    Although I did go thru some upgrade notes. I have two

    1. Is the transition easy from Vb6 to VB.net.
    2.What should I do? go for .net or VB6.

    Please advise.

    Why would you tell someone that is already acquainted with
    programming to study VB.NET for a year? Is that so they
    don't go out into the working world and jeopardise your
    possibilities. Most programmers can pick up a new language
    in a few months and easily pass the test. It must be you
    that is new to programming since all of us programmers
    know this. I program in 8 languages. You?

    I suggest you to certify your current skill for VB6 first, and then jump to
    VB.NET later...

    Learn one oo language, the rest are easy to learn. Generally design &
    programming techniques don't change, only the constructs and syntax
    do. In any case programming forms only a small part of the development

    I will say though, that learning the ins and outs of dot net does
    require more effort, although you certainly don't need to understand
    it a great deal in order to pass the exams.

    Sri didn't express an immediate interest in landing a job. He did say that
    he has no idea about .NET, and it can in fact take a year to become fully
    acquanted with a new platform (it's not just leaning a new language). I
    already have a job, so I'm not concerned with misleading potential
    competitors. My only intention is to provide useful and pragmatic advise to
    someone who asked for it.
