Help me get a Microsoft DB certification

I want to get a Microsoft Database certification so I can become a database developer (I know some basic SQL using Postgres but I'd like to know more and get a certification). What's the best way to do this using a book instead of taking a class?

Here are my specific questions:
1) What specific book or package should I use to get this certification? The classes are bonkers expensive and I learn really well from books.
2) What's the best way to sign up for this test?
3) How do I get a job once I have this? Will someone hire me? If not, what else should I be doing to supplement this? I live in Washington, DC if that's relevant.
4) Anything else should I know? I really like databases and would like to move into this area but if this is the wrong way to do it or it will be unremunerative I'd rather know now.
