Q

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 www.cramsession.com, 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.
