    Wow. Awesome. Thanks for the link, man. Never would have found it, otherwise. And I'm already a member of the Dreamspark for school. This will definitely come in handy. Server 2008 Studying, here I come! :)

    So I am guessing that this cannot be used for exams like 70-647 EA exam, because according the MS site it is a MCITP exam. I have not taken the Vista exam yet but I was hoping not to have to. I was hoping that a Windows 7 exam will come out beta that will qualify in that slot for the Enterprise Administrator.

    It doesn't need to be. Read over the page carefully... You can verify your student status through JourneyEd.com and sign up from there. My school isn't there, but my whole office signed up.

    aaronchristenson - http://www.microsoft.com/learning/mcp/mcts/default.mspx The 2008 exams are on there, but you might be right about the 70-647.

    I just added the Dreamspark subscription to the shopping cart and checked out. Once there, they'll ask you to mail, fax, email, or upload proof of enrollment in classes. (I printed my schedule from my school's site to PDF and sent in that.)

    Free PowerShell Resources: Top PowerShell Blogs
    Free DevOps/Azure Resources: Visual Studio Dev Essentials

    Let it never be said that I didn't do the very least I could do.

    I wonder how long it takes for the proof of enrolment in school to be validated? The website was not that clear.

    I've gotten my access code and I'll be doing the 70-640... hopefully I can get that done in two months.

    I found it does not take long to get your access key. I got the comfirmation 24 hours later.
    Now I need to figure out which exam to take. Based on what I have in my signature anyone out there have any suggestions. I going to try not to do the Vista exam but if that is my best option then so be it.

    Thanks
