Hello, Greetings of the day I'm a programmer and working as a senior software developer. I was thinking about completing Microsoft certification exam 70-483 programming in C# and 70-486 Developing ASP.NET MVC 4 Web Applications. I want to know the advantage and disadvantage of it. weather cracking exam is really beneficial for me or it is worth. Does it make negative impact?
It is worth it if you are looking for employment or plan to do so in the near future because it looks really good on your CV.
But of course, the actual, real result of a certification is THIS[^] (I sh*t you not!)

I have found that a certificate is only good when getting your first job. Once you have more experience than 1 or 2 years the certificate should not mean anything at all. A good potential employer will ask you what you have done and will hire based on experience.
But there are some companies that provide raises when getting certification. So, find out about your employer.
There are only 10 types of people in the world, those who understand binary and those who don't.
When reviewing resumes, I find certificates a negative (along with PhDs.) This is based on a lifetime of experience where most (not all, most) people tout certificates as a substitute for actual knowledge.
Speaking as someone who's given more than several technical interviews, I can say they don't have a negative impact IMO to have them. But, they don't certainly mean I'd hire someone just because they're there. So if you really want to pay for them go for it. Can't hurt. Just don't expect them to be a magic bullet to convince you to be hired, if the person hiring has any experience at all they'll use other means to gauge how good you are.
