where to start with windows certs

ok been at this for a while....

But I am thinking about knocking out some windows certs....

I guess this is a dumb question when i say:

I am using mostly win2003 at work....

But would you go that route or start down the 2008 path if you were starting fresh?
encrypt the encryption, never mind my brain hurts.

    Start with 2003 and Use 70-620 for your client OS. You'll need to do six more exams for your MCSE and only two to upgrade to MCITP: Enterprise Administrator.

    70-290

    Exam 70-620: TS: Configuring Microsoft Windows Vista Client: counts as credit toward the following certification(s):

    * Microsoft Certified IT Professional (MCITP): Consumer Support Technician
    * Microsoft Certified IT Professional (MCITP): Enterprise Support Technician
    * Microsoft Certified Systems Administrator (MCSA) on Windows Server 2003 and Microsoft Windows 2000
    * Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE) on Windows Server 2003 and Microsoft Windows 2000 Server
    * Microsoft Certified IT Professional (MCITP): Enterprise Administrator

    Additionally its used in the upgrade to 2008 Enterprise from the Win2003 MCSE

    can any of the 2003 test be applied to the 2008 track at all?

    620 is the only one that overlaps.

    thanks bro...



    I guess it would still be good to get the 2003 and then only have to take 4 tests to have the 2008 cert...

    If you have a 2003 MCSE, you'd only need two more to upgrade to MCITP: Enterprise Administrator.
