    I have decided to go for MCSD.NET. I will take exam 70-305 as my fist paper. Please help me in deciding how to start and also in searching good books and other study materials.
    Thanks

    A really good starting point is www.asp.net - it has everthing you need to get you started.
    www.amazon.co.uk is one of the best resources for books. I would suggest that you search for the course heading, i.e. '70-305' rather than 'ASP .NET'. That way you will get books specific to the course.

    When starting out in MCSD, is there any particular order or structure in which exams should be taken?

    Which ever way is most comfortable for you. The MCAD/MCSD is like any other MS cert/qualification. You can do them in any order you wish.

    Basically you need to decise on which platform you want to work with - Web (70-305) or Windows (70-306) - that's VB.NET mind, the codes are different for C# - and I would start there. You then need to do XML (70-310) and after that it's a matter of picking your electives...

    There's a little bit more to it than that I'm afraid.
    You may want to get your hands on an IDE to have a bit of a play with.
    Visual Studio is a bit pricey. Visual Basic.NET is reasonable and MS are giving away the 2005 express editions.
    There are some free ones on the interweb too, such as Webmatrix.
