I finished off my MCSA: Messaging yesterday!

Very happy with myself even though it's taken a lot longer than I originally planned, new baby etc. will do that :)

Was dreading 70-284 as a lot of people said it was very hard, I found it the easiest of all the exams so far.

I think my next step will be MCITP:EA. At work we're going to be upgrading all out kit to 2008 so I'll get some real world hands on experiance.

I'm looking at 70-648 next which as I understand it, is a combination of 70-640 & 70-642. Should I study it as the two exams or are there any good resources for the combination, if you get wat I mean??

Also, how do I go about getting the certificate. I ordered one when I got my first MCP but cannot for the life of me remember where I went to get it.

    Sounds good. Looks like you have got yourself a plan.

    Congrats on the accomplishment!
    The poster above gave you the link to download and print your certificate. You may want to order this one (It's a little more important) which costs $11 from the same site. As far as I know there isn't one good resource for the 70-648 and you should probably study for both the 70-640/642 .
    Good luck on your studies.
    No longer work in IT. Play around with stuff sometimes still and fix stuff for friends and relatives.

    I´m proud and very happy with myself even though it's taken a lot longer than I originally planned, new baby ...!

    I found 70-284 very hard, I did not pass and was retired last march , today I take 70-680 and found it the easiest of all the exams so far ! Almost like XP.

    So I need now 648 upgrade to MCITP Windows Server 2008 (640 + 642), then 646 and I will have my MCITP Server administrator, then 643 and 647 and I will get my MCITP Enterprise administrator and I need a Client and this is My 70-680 so i´m done !

    how do I go about getting the certificate. I couldn´t ordered one when I got my first MCP and I want my MCSA ad MCTS!
