To obtain the MCSD don't need to get MCSA. A completely different branch. In this document more clearly.

Hmm, that's interesting. Just the first thing I came across was "a Guide to Microsoft certification: to help the Manager and personnel Manager" April 2012, citing the following:
Table 2. The number of certification exams that they must pass to receive
technical certification status Microsoft.
New certification "cloud era" (introduced in 2012)

The status of the Number of examinations the Full name of the status
2 or 3 MCSA Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate
MCSE MCSA status + about 3 exams (total of about 6) Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert
MCSD status MCSA + about 3 exams (total of about 6) Microsoft Certified Solutions Developer
VIP MCSM-certification; requires MCSE (Expert) and/or additional Microsoft Certified Solutions Master
relatively serious tests

But your document is fresh.
