    I've only taken the .NET 2 exams.

    What is wrong with following the study guide ?

    How come you are taking .NET exams if you are working in support ?

    Yeah thats the study guide I thought I would go for - although I might go for the Visual Studio 2008 exams as I work in the civil service and we have only just got onto Visual Studio 2005.

    I do not work in support anymore - I transferred to a job doing programming in CA-Clipper, Visual Basic 6 and Blaise + Manipula scripting with abit of SQL Server - we still use SQL 2000 here aswell ! Laughable innit !

    I'd expect they have an MSDN subscription so there is not really any reason to not upgrade the IDE at least.

    SQL 2000 was ok, I can understand why it might still be in production. Again no reason to use it on greenfield projects.

    Visual Studio 2005 exams are still available, however seems pointless taking the older exams to me. Most new jobs will want you to have some .NET 3.5 and 4 exposure.

    I'd advise putting in a lot of study at home, use MSDN from work or get Dreamspark or Websitespark membership, install all the latest stuff and work through the guides for the .NET 4 track.
