I've taken it and passed for VB 5.0
and landed a job making 22K more a year.

Take practice exams and go in highly
motivated and confident. You will do good.

For career prospects, I'd strongly suggest putting together some sample programs to demonstrate your actual competance as well as your VB score. One of the nice things about the MCSD exams is that you can more easily prove your ability than the MCSE tests as some people assume that passing the test is just by remote memorization.

I have been studying for the MCP in VB 6 and having talked to other people who have passed the exam, I can say that the best thing to do is get one of a number of self-study books (go to amazon.com and do a search on microsoft certification). The best ones have practice exams so that you get a feel for the style of questioning. Then when you feel confident, take the exam.

Also if you want to see how much that certification, look at any salary survey and see how much difference a MCP in VBis worth. The ones I've seen are striking. In my situation, with my years of experience and in my part of the united states, I could be worth 25% more after passing the exam. It's worth it.

But, the most important thing is to get into a good practice project or two and get your hands dirty learning VB. Doing programming is the best way to learn it, I've found. Good luck!
