Planning to take a microsoft certification next month, what would be the first exam I should take?
Should I enroll in any training center first or should I go straight to the exam?

I am focusing on windows application.... and vb.net

Any suggestions is greatly appreciated.

try 70-526 and/or 70-536 first as they are the base for many other certifications

looks like 70-536 is bigger in scope compared to 70-505? Am I right?

Do I need to pass, both the Exam 70-536 and Exam 70-505 to get a certification MCTS: .NET Framework 3.5, Windows Forms Applications?

Yes. 70-505 is very specific to Windows Forms application while 70-536 is the framework itself (threading, security, graphices, ...).

Also register for second shot if its available where you are located. That way if you fail you don't lose money. There was a book on amazon that I was looking at for 536 but reviews said it didn't cover everything that they asked in the exam.
