You need to take 6 papers in all 5 compulsory and the last one you have a

You are an MCP when you clear any one paper of your liking!! You need to make up
your mind whether you want to follow the VB.NET track or the C#.NET track before
starting to prepare. You cannot take one paper from one track and take a
parallel paper from the other track and claim credits.

The papers are as follows:

1) C#.NET / VB.NET

2) ASP.NET (C# or VB.NET track)

3) XML and Web Services (C# or VB.NET track)

4) SQL Server 2000 or higher

5) Project Management

6) You have to choose one of several papers – (Commerce Server/ Exchange Server
etc …)

You become an MCP if you clear any one of the first 5 papers. You are an MCAD
when you clear papers 1 through 4. When you have all 6 you are an MCSD.NET.
However, with 2005, Microsoft has already started upgrade exams. In another

year, they would have a separate track for VS 2005!!
still continue to be recognized at least for the next three years!!
