    I'm planning for MCTS.:D
    Actually I was interested in MCAD, Dut now that Many of the MCAD
    exams are sheduled for retirement I'm going for MCTS.

    I've heard that 2 years of dot net experience is a must for this exam. I mean to ask that does Microsoft asks for experience for being eligible for the exam?

    I've a little experience in programming Visual Basic 6.0.:D

    Also guide me about the preparation for this exam.:D

    I think it would be pointless going for this at the moment, passing the exams isn't going to make you a programmer or designer it should only be used to re-enforce your existing knowledge.

    Although I agree that you need to have a reasonable idea before doing these exams, I think that it's more than just a piece of paper which adds nothing your competence.

    You look at some areas which you may not normally get involved in or for which training is not available where you work.

    For instance, there's lots of stuff in the .NET foundation paper (70-536) which I would not have encountered otherwise (although this could of course be due to my relative inexperience/incompetence - you decide!).

    :(I guess the flipside of this is that you may end up learning lots of things you don't really need while life is already short.

    Anyway, I'm sticking with it.
