Which one is the bridge exam for Windows 7?

A co worker in my office has the MCDST and he was wondering which Windows 7 exam would be required to get the Enterprise Support Specialist?

Also would you get that credential and the MCTS?

    Thanks for the information. The guy at work is a really good guy and he has been out of the loop for a while. We got on the subject of certs and I was surprised he even had one cert. So I decided to ask the all knowledgeable message board. As usually you guys didn't disappoint.

    It DOES also provide the MCTS Windows 7 Configuring. This has been confirmed by people who have taken it and MS Learning.

    Robert forgive the ignorance. Are you saying that studying the 680 would prep him for the 682?

    I believe the 682 is just a mix of 680 and 685.

    Also a question on this......would this give you credit for the EA/SA or MCSA/MCSE client exam then?

    If so I'll skip the 680 and just take the 682 upgrade exam. I figured I'd have to do both.

    No, that is not what I am saying althought that is correct in part. I am saying that qualifying candidates who pass the 682 receive both the MCTS on Windows 7 and the MCITP EDST 7 credentials as the Win 7 Configuring is a pre-req for the MCITP.

    It is I verified with one of our admins here at work. He actually has taken the 682 and said he studied the book for 685/686 and just did online material for 680. He passed no problem

    Yes, that's the way it is with all the upgrad exams. Generally there are two section - one for each of the "regular" exams. In some instances these are actually split into different testlets (mini exams) - although in most of the upgrade exams there is only one test but there are two objectives mapping to each of the regular exams.

    This is good stuff to know. I was planning on pursuing the MCDST since so many gov't agencies still use XP. So I can just tac on a 70-682 and grab a MCITP: EDST as well! Awesome.

    To answer the question, yes it does.
    I confirmed with MCP help that the 70-682 does indeed count for the MCITP EA / SA.
