Visual Studio 2005 certification series MCTS and MCPD


MCSD, MCAD is what most of the Microsoft developers have been looking forward to for quite some years now, being one I was planning to opt for MCAD, but a serious study on MS site revealed a new picture, with the introduction of VS 2005, a new set of exams have popped in, the MCTS [Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist] and the MCPD [Microsoft Certified Professional Developer].

Many developers are still not aware of the introduction of new exams and still opt for MCAD & MSCD, which involves only VS 2003, which most of the developers are not using.
