    Is it not easier to do these exams separately rather than taking them all in
    one go because you have 2 books to read at once and Vista is still new and
    you are still getting used to some of the new features? MCDST izs easy
    because we all have been using XP for sometime and we know most stuff by
    head and some of the questions where related to things you knew before
    reading the exams. Please advise whether I am better off sitting for these
    exams separately or there is less questions and its easier when combined.

    I have to admit that I have never taken any of the upgrade exams. However,
    in a recent webcast, MSL admitted that the upgrade tests contain the more
    "challenging" questions from both other exams. 70-621 is in fact a
    combination of 70-620 and 70-622. Since you will only have half of the
    normal questions from 70-620, they purposely pick the more challenging ones.
    Same thing goes for 70-622.

    I have also heard it in these groups that people who have taken these tests
    have said they are, or at least they appeared to be more difficult.

    I have heard it said however that the upgrade exams are really only the
    delta's of the product, and not too much oriented on job function stuff.
    Again, I have no experience there and I cannot comment.

    However, for my money, I think I'd rather take the exams separately. You
    only have half of the information for each exam, however you do have twice
    the testing fees. Since my company reimburses test fees (if I pass), that
    really isn't a concern to me. Any job function stuff on the tests are
    probably things I need to learn anyway for the new product.

    I am currently studying 70-620 (and learning Vista).

    Thanks for the advice. I need to save money because I pay for my own exams
    but I will give it a thought first.
