Is it worth my time to get an MCSD certification?
Can you advise me about how should I start getting an MCSD (Visual C++ track) certification? Which
books should I follow? Should I take a course?
You will find excellent guides to the MCSD certification process at
, including recommendations for study guides, practice
tests, and access to highly-qualified instructors and certified developers.
As to whether or not you should pursue this certification, MCSDs are still
pretty scarce and there is a strong demand for Microsoft programmers, so
if you can afford the time, money, and effort it will take to obtain this
credential, it will probably turn out to be a worthwhile investment.
Good luck in pursuing this certification program.
