    The 70-515 is the MCTS exam for web applications using .Net 4.0. Passing just this exam will net you MCTS status, covering this area of development.

    The 70-562 covers the same aspect, but using .Net 3.5. However, the 70-562 alone will not give you MCTS status. You will also need to sit the 70-536 exam in order to obtain the MCTS.

    Sit whichever one makes more sense to you given your development work. If you aren't using .Net 4.0, and will not be in the future, then it might make more sense to do the 3.5 exams. If you will (or are) be progressing onto .Net 4.0, then that exam makes more sense.

    It makes most sense for most people to take the NET v4 track, its less exams and its on the latest version.
