MCTS: .NET Framework 3.5, ADO.NET Applications
The Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 certification tracks are based on six Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist (MCTS) certifications that demonstrate your understanding of application development. Each certification focuses on the features and functionality of key technology areas in the Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5.
Candidates for the MCTS certifications are professionals who use Visual Studio 2008 and the Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5, or who anticipate working with these technologies in the near future. You should have at least one year of experience using the underlying technologies that are covered in the corresponding exam.
Each MCTS certification requires Exam 70-536 and one specialized exam, as shown below. Note If you currently hold any .NET Framework 2.0 MCTS or Microsoft Certified Professional Developer (MCPD) certifications, you have already fulfilled the Exam 70-536 requirement and do not need to pass Exam 70-536 again; you must pass only the exam related to your specific certification.
The MCTS certifications will be retired when Microsoft discontinues mainstream support for the related technology.
