Microsoft certification

After all the changes I’ve gone through over the last several months, I’m not entirely sure what I want to do with my life next. I’ve tentatively decided, though, that I’m going to pursue a Microsoft certification, probably some variant of MCPD. I’ll have to start with exam 70-536, regardless of which path I take, so I’ve started working on that. I’m reading through the official MS Press book for this exam, via my ACM Books24x7 account. I’ve succeeded in reading a chapter a day for the last three days, so if I can keep this up, I can probably take the test a few weeks from now.

I’m not sure how serious I need to be about practicing for the test. Should I buy a practice test from Transcender or MeasureUp or somebody like that? Or just wing it?

I stumbled across this page on CodeProject this morning. Looks like something that would be worth playing with after I make it through the book.
