Today I just passed Exam 70-573 TS: Microsoft SharePoint 2010, Application Development. I just did some research to find out what’s the next exam should I take to earn MCPD for SharePoint developer 2010.
For those who are not aware of SharePoint 2010 Certifications, MSFT now offers two separate tracks namely MCPD for Developers and MCITP for IT Professionals each containing two exams as shown in figure below. This also means that SharePoint professionals (both Developers and IT Professionals) are now better align with other technologies / product certifications (for example .NET 3.5 MCPD track).

First you need to pass Exam 70-573 TS: Microsoft SharePoint 2010, Application Development and then Exam 70-576: PRO: Designing and Developing Microsoft SharePoint 2010 Applications to earn MCPD SharePoint Developer 2010.
