Which exam first? 697 or 698

I've just been told by my boss that he'd like to have me certified with the Windows 10 MCSA cert. I took a look at both books and at first glance they seem quite a bit different from each other. Is there any recommendation at to which exam I should be studying for first (697 or 698 )? I understand that both exams are killers. Also wondering if the exams would be covering the Anniversary edition of Win 10.
IMO the 698 is the "real" desktop exam. 697 is very heavy towards the online-services from MS (Azure, Intune)
There will be plenty of material once the exam goes live.
Materials i used:
- Reading Technet (a lot!) -> Topics can be found in the exam description: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/learning/exam-70-698.aspx
- Microsoft Virtual Academy -> https://mva.microsoft.com/
- working with Win 10 (Updated all computers at work, my personal laptop, played around in my lab, installed Win 10 IoT and so on)
- also installed a Win Server 2016 Technical Preview (sometimes they ask server-questions inside the desktop exams)
