MSCA - MCSA: Messaging - 2 seperate Member Kits?

I saw my transcript on the MS site and since i got my MCSA Messaging it now says i have 2 credentials being MCSA 2003 and MCSA: Messaging 2003. Does that mean i will get 2 seperate Member Kits????

    Im curious at this as well,

    Im currently studying 70-284 to finish of my MCSA 2003.

    So it is confirmed then that you will receive 2 credentials as well as 2 Welcome kits from doing 70-284 as elective?

    MCSA 2003 and
    MCSA 2003 : Messaging?

    I used sybex and ive been working with exchange for the past year on a regular basis so that helps. Ive used sybex for every exam and i find them really easy to read. Ye IT in Sydney is cool where abouts you from?

    Yeah I changed over to Sybex for this one, used MS press for previous exams.

    Im in the dry zone, SA - Adelaide. Beautiful city, beer is great, but IT a little dry in some ways.

    What cert you planning next?

    Yup, you'll get separate kits for each cert, even if a cert is essentially a superset of another cert you have.

    I got 4 kits:
    MCSA 2000
    MCSA 2000 messaging
    MCSA 2003
    MCSE 2003
    Since the kits were delayed, I got them all at the same time, even though I certified at 3 different dates:
    First I achieve MCSA 2000, but since I already passed the Exchange 2000 admin exam, I also achieve messaging.
    Then upgraded to MCSA 2003
    Then completed the rest of the track for MSCE 2003.
