Can you guide me about whether I should start a MCSD (visual C++) track or not?

Can you guide me about whether I should start a MCSD (visual C++ track ) or not? If you are interested in Microsoft programming topics and related certification, you can indeed pursue the MCSD with a specialization in C++. The list of exams you will need to take is as follows: 70-015 Designing and Implementing Distributed Applications with Microsoft Visual C++ 6.0 70-016 Designing and Implementing Desktop Applications with Microsoft...

Visual C++ 6.0 70-100 Analyzing Requirements and Defining Solution Architectures One elective exam: please visit the MCSD requirements page at http://www.microsoft.com/trainingandservices/default.asp?PageID=mcp&PageCall =requirements⋐Site=cert/mcsd&AnnMenu=mcsd for a complete list of the exams involved.

Before you pursue this certification, however, you might want to wait until November or December. Microsoft is getting ready for a major revision of the MCSD program, in part to take cognizance of the .NET environment. They will also be introducing exams on C# (C-sharp), their new object-oriented language that's very similar to Java. If you really want your development skills to be on the cutting edge, that kind of curriculum may be a better bet for your MCSD.
