i am planning to take a .NET certification (decided to take web based). I came to know there is MCPD certification for developers. I started looking into microsoft site for further information but I was not able to make a list of certifications or pre-requisites so I can take my step towards completing them. I have not taken any certifications before and also please let me know if it is possible to take .NET 3.5 without completing 2.0 ? Any clarifications are appreciated!
Thanks in advance!
