Elective Exams (One Exam Required)

Microsoft Certified Solution Developer (MCSD) for Microsoft .NET candidates are required to pass four core exams and one elective exam. The core exams provide a valid and reliable measure of technical proficiency and expertise in developing and maintaining enterprise applications that are based on Microsoft development tools, technologies, and platforms on the Microsoft .NET Framework 1.0 and Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1. The elective exam provides proof of expertise on a specific Microsoft server product.

An MCSD for Microsoft .NET candidate should have two years of experience developing and maintaining solutions and applications.

NEW You may now choose to apply the new Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist exams for Microsoft SQL Server 2005 and Microsoft BizTalk Server 2006 as electives toward your MCSD credential.
