  • Hi,

    You can take either of these exams. You do not need to take both.  If you are building web applications using version 3.5 of the network you should take 70-562.  If you are using the older 2.0 version of the framework you may want to consider the 70-528 exam.  Please note that to obtain the MCTS (Microsoft Certified Technology specialist) credential for web applications you will also need to pass the 70-536 exam.  This exam covers the .NET framework and is a prerequisite for any of the 2.0 or 3.5 MCTS developer certifications.

    Good luck,

  • Hi Praful,

    I am moving this thread from Base ".NET Framework Setup" forum to the "Training and Certification" forum, since the issue is related to certification. There are more experts in the "Training and Certification" forum.

    Thanks
