How about we start with "what have you looked up or research materials you amassed?". You know different certifications focus on different topics and to be cert specific (if that is what you are asking) would require telling us what you are going for.

Outside of that - flip through the tutorials here.

I am not sure what you need since it seems a bit hard to divine from your statements.. but go flip through the pinned threads.

Since this isn't a programming help question, I'm moving it to the "Advanced Discussion" area.

Now, the important question is, which certification do you plan on trying for? You can't just say "give me study material" because each different certification is going to require a different set of knowledge.

Next, is that cert reputable? For example, W3Schools certifications are completely worthless, where as Microsoft's MCPD ("Microsoft Certified Professional Developer") is completely valid and respectable. Make sure you're not wasting your time and money on a cert that won't get you anywhere.

My biggest question for you is, do you feel like you're an expert in C#? If not, then don't bother. If you don't have enough knowledge for a Cert, you're wasting your time and money, and you need more general study material, like advanced books on the language.

Out of curiosity, do you think the MCPD is worth getting? I got my MCSD in 2000, and have thought about upgrading.

From everything I've heard and read, MCPD is a very good cert. It's not easy to get, you have to get three separate certs (MCTS) and then take a comprehensive test.

I'm personally working towards getting a CISSP cert this year.
