i know this has probably been written in here before.. but...

what's the recommended order of the MCSA?

yes, I know I should get the MCITP SA, which I will with my degree plan, and yes, I know there is no specific order for the MCSA.... but..

as i posted in another thread, the job I want with my current company specifically said a MCSA or MCSE would greatly help me get the job I want.... so... you can see my certs on the right...

where should I start now?

    essentially I'll be taking 70-680, 70-290, and 70-291... should I take 290 and 291 prior to 680? or the other way around?

    If I were you I would take the 70-680, 70-290, and then 70-291.

    I did the 270, 290, and 291. I don't think it matters when you take the client exam, but for the MCITP track, I've heard it better to wait until after the server exams are done.
    I would definitely do the 290 before the 291, though. 291 builds on the 291. The 290 will probably be the easiest of the 3 exams.

    I did my elective (A+/Net+), 270, 290, 291 and I think that is the way that people normally go. I found that each exam built off the other one, but I do remember getting questions on exams that I hadn't studied and then later learned from other studies. So there is some intermingling going on.
    Decide what to be and go be it.
