Hi,

I am planning to do 70-271 exam as part of MCDST but wondering if I decide
to do MCSA in near future do I need to take 70-270 again? It looks there is
no difference between both.

can you shed some light on this please?

Although 70-270 and 70-271 would appear very similar, there are some
important differences. Mostly that 70-270 looks at XP from an Network
Administrator viewpoint, whereas 70-271 looks at XP from a user/tech support
viewpoint.

To move to MCSA, you will have to take a client elective. Your MCDST will
satisfy the MCSA open elective, but not the client elective. You will
therefore have to take either 70-210 (2000), 70-270 (XP), or 70-620 (Vista).
Note that 620 at this time does not appear to satisfy the client elective
for MCSA:S, or MCSA:M.
