Hi. I'm a freshman college student. Im a beginner programmer and i'm thinking about getting MCSD certified. i'm not sure whether to stay with the old MCSD track or to jump into the new .NET track. I know a bit about VB6 and I'm planning to keep on studying on in if i'll take the old track. But I'm scared of wasting my time on the old track if it's not going to be worth it. Can anyone give me an advice on this? Should i get certified on the old track or should i just pursue a certification on the .NET track? thanx. :rolleyes: :confused:

If you are new to programming start with Object oriented programming  directly. C# and VB.NET is totally different from VB6. No point of wasting your time on VB6 now.

Start with MCAD. I am doing too. but just started.

I agree with that Start with MCAD and then MCSD.Net .. Don't waste your time with MCSD.

Hi to all.

  i am new to this certification and all
  stuff. the doudt i have is that

  for mcad it takes 3 papers
  for mcsd.net it takes four elective papers.
  if i am not wrong:)))

  if a person completes his mcad
  and writes on more paper does microsoft
  offers the person mcsd.net also.
  that means 2 certification .

  can they be clubbed like this.
  how does this microsoft know that
  after taking this test you will get these
  2 certifications.

  does it mean we have to specify or just it
  automatically send u the certification
 
  is this login applicable to all
  exams or just mcsd exams

  what is the difference between this
  elective exams and core exams

  i know that it is not subject related
  but i take the opprtunity to clear
  my doudt..

  i feel that my post is long but pls do  
  answer this.
 
  thanks

Check out http://www.microsoft.com/mcad and http://www.microsoft.com/mcsd for the latest requirements.

Currently, it's like so:
MCAD requires that you pass three exams
MCSD on VB6 or VC++6 requires that you pass four exams
MCSD on VB.net or C# requires that you pass five exams

You can only pass any Microsoft exam once - you can take it as many times you want if you fail, but once you've passed the exam you can't take it again.

If you check out the requirements you'll see some exams mentioned more than once. 70-229 (SQL Server) is an exam that's core o elective for most tracks. This means that if you go off and pass 70-229, you're one step closer to achieve all of MCSD (both), MCAD, MCSE, MCDBA and MCSA.

So, you could take the three exams you need for MCSA, and then you'd just need two more to pass MCSD on .NET as well.

That's kinda the idea with MCSA, I'm sure, it's an achievable milestone towards MCSD.

You don't need to tell Microsoft or anyone else which 'full' certification you're aiming for. You can take any exams in any order you want. As soon as what you have adds up to a new full certification, Microsoft sends out a new membership card & lapel pin...

If you start towards one track, you can switch whenever. If you start on one track, nobody's forcing you to complete it. It's all optional...


Hope this answers some questions; more info is of course available at Microsoft's web site

Good Luck!

True, it should have read:
