There are 3 tracks:
There are 2 levels on each track, each covered by an exam. That's 6 exams and each one takes quite a lot of work. You have to get to the first level on a track before you can sit the next level.
(Actually there is a 3rd level, Microsoft Certified Master, but it costs about $15,000! There are 3 in the world outside Microsoft, and about 12 who are Microsoft employees. I presume they get quite a staff discount!)
Here's the home page for SQL Server certification: http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/certification/cert-sql-server.aspx

Just a suggestion, but considering the current release schedules and versions available, if you are going for certification now, it would be best to go for 2008 certs, not 2005.

Hari, start with one of the MCTS Exam depending on which path you want to take:
