Jr. System Admin - which test to start

Hey guys, which test do most people normally study for and take first in the MSCE track; i'm guessing the AD one? I'm starting a new job as a Jr. System Admin in two weeks and would like to go ahead and start my studies now, which would be most beneficial to study first in your opinion?

    Start with the 290 as it will cover most of the things a Jr. Sys Admin will need to know from an ops perspective. This is the do you know how to create an AD account, work with OUs, manage a Server 2003 system test.

    The AD one is good knowledge (and also a major pain in the ass) but likely doesn't pertain much to what you are doing. 290 and 291 will be where you want to start.

    Once you have them down you can do your client exam (probably want to do 70-680 for that over the 270) and you already have the elective (A+/Net+) for your MCSA. Then move on to the 293, 294, and your design elective for the MCSE.
    Decide what to be and go be it.
