Just Passed 2nd MCDST Exam...Dumb Resume Question

    Okay, so about a month ago I finally took the 70-271 exam and passed.
    Yesterday I took the 70-272 and passed. Which leads me to a rather dumb
    question:

    Since Microsoft considered anyone who passes any of their exams on anything
    to be an MCP, should I put both MCP and MCDST on my resume, or would that
    just come off as inappropriate, like I'm gunning for extra points by padding
    my resume with info that goes without saying (granted, not all IT managers
    would be aware of this, but I'd hope most are)?

    On a side note, while I scored pretty well on the first exam, I scored much
    better on the second, mainly, I think, due to the fact that the exams seem
    to overlap on their content.

    Thanks!

    Put them both, it looks better. Realize that you did just get another
    certification and nothing is inappropriate about advertising the fact
    that you have more than just your MCP.

    Also, if you feel that your score was an extremely high score, include
    the actual test score that you got when you completed the exam. It
    works.

    Hmmm...to be honest, I didn't really consider putting the scores up, but I
    suppose it might help. 70-721 was an 833 (not low, not high, but right in
    the middle), but the 70-272 was 972, so that'll look nice...

    Thanks,
    Bob

    Oops, just realized I mistyped those exam numbers...obviously they should
    have been the 70-271 and 70-272 exams...
