MCITP - Windows Server/Client Certs - Should I do the client certs?

I'm finalizing my MCITP study path for "Windows Server" technologies and need to find out if the "Windows Client" certifications are worth obtaining along with the Windows Server certifications.

Here is my current study path;

Windows Client –

MCITP: Enterprise Desktop Support Technician 7 (require exams 70-680, 70-685)
MCITP: Enterprise Desktop Administrator 7 (require exams 70-680, 70-686)

Windows Server –

MCITP: Server Administrator (require exams 70-640, 70-642, 70-646)
MCITP: Enterprise Administrator (require further exams 70-643, 70-680, 70-647)

The Client certs are obviously much easier than the Server certs – my question is does anyone know if the Client certs are worth spending time/money getting or should I just do the Server certs – do they supersede the Client certs?

    I would be careful about thinking that...


    If you want to get the MCITP:EA you will have to take the 70-680 or 70-620. I'm learning many things I didn't know by doing the 680, and I think it's already payed off for me.

    Id say the Win7 exam is on par with the 640 as far as difficulty goes (they cover very different material, though).

    The 70-270 (XP) exam was always deemed as one of the harder MCSE tests.
    I got a fortune cookie that said "Outlook not so good" and I thought to myself "Yeah...but Microsoft sells it anyway."
