    Two of the three exams you'll need are 70-620 & 70-622... I am speculating
    that the third is 70-623, but I did not look it up. I took the beta upgrade
    exam for MCITP (I took 620 & 622 too) but won't know the results for some
    time. I hate waiting... I have three beta exams that I am waiting on
    results for.

    Good luck!

    If you go the full Vista route, then it's what Montreal MCT said, it the
    70-620, 70-622 & 70-623 (this has to be confirmed, the 70-623 is still in
    beta).

    However I would recommend the upgrade path, this is so you'll be certified
    in XP as well as Vista, this route goes: 70-271, 70-272 & 70-621 (this one is
    the upgade exam).

    If you do the upgrade route you'll get the MCDST, MCTS and MCITP status, if
    you do the full Vista route you'll get the MCTS and the MCITP status (one in
    Enterprise Support, one in Consumer support).

    The choose is yours...

    Hope this helps

  4. Seems like the upgrade route is a no brainer; exams 70-271, 70-272 & 70-621
    are the ones with the most benefit (three certs for three exams); thank you
    for your assistance.

    Hi Jonathan

    I don't know about Mark, but this was my route MCSA -> MCDST -> MCSE. Even
    though I already had the MCSA I went for the MCDST, I guess it was for
    several reasons: 1. To get another cert & 2. To actually broaden my knowledge
    base.

    The MCDST & MCSE covers different areas and I wanted to make sure that I had
    the basic's covered. I didn't want to to say "oh yes" I'm a MCSE but turn up
    to a private job and not be able to configure Outlook Express properly (at
    work we use Office 2003/2007), etc...

    I guess after typing this I'm also interested in other peoples stories, in
    why they decide to do the MCDST after completing the MCSA/MCSE :)
