    Hi friends,

    I know that passing any one of the exams offered by MS will qualify us the MCP certification but which one should I choose? I think many of other users would have also asked the same query but please be patient and bear with my botherings :rolleyes:

    I have even checked out MS Official Exam List But I am kind of confused and not sure which one I am supposed to be taking up to qualify the MCP. By the way my future is going to be with C, C++ programming and not with any of the Server Administration stuff.

    I would be glad if any one of you can give me a helping hand on this front. I promise to give you all a snickers if I get through aye lol :p

    Hi, if you are heading down the programming route/software engineering route, you should really be looking down this route:

    The MCSD, MCAD (these two if you're using C+ from MS Visual Studio .Net 1 or 1.1) or the MCPD, MCTS (these two if you're using C+ from MS Visual Studio .Net 2). And not the MCDST, MCSA or MCSE route.

    Take a look at the requirements at the above four quals (the links are set above for you), do one of the exams and you'll get the MCP status.

    Hope this helps.

    -Ken

    Examples of exams for the C+ route would be:

    Exam 70–315: Developing and Implementing Web Applications with Microsoft Visual C# .NET and Microsoft Visual Studio .NET

    Exam 70–316: Developing and Implementing Windows-based Applications with Microsoft Visual C# .NET and Microsoft Visual Studio .NET

    Exam 70–320: Developing XML Web Services and Server Components with Microsoft Visual C# and the Microsoft .NET Framework

    Exam 70–340: Implementing Security for Applications with Microsoft Visual C# .NET

    Exam 70–536: TS: Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 - Application Development Foundation

    Exam 70–526: TS: Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 - Windows-Based Client Development

    For more information see the MS website.
