    Most definitely. You may be more familiar with Windows XP so you may want to take 70-270. The 70-620 however will give you credit towards your 2008 certifications like MCTS and MCITP as well as the 2003 MCSA/MCSE stuff. Just depends on what you want to do and/or what your comfortable with. Keep in mind XP and the 2003 stuff will still be around for a long time, so don't think it's 'outdated'.

    The Vista exam 70-620 is more versatile in your certification options the the older 70-270 for XP. It also covers a lot less which makes it easier.

    Your XP knowledge will apply to a good number of things on the 70-620 and and also on the 70-290 if you choose to go after your MCSA/MCSE.
