Hi Guys,

Bit confused at the mo :)

I am just about to start my MCSA studies and decided to pick "70-620 Windows Vista Configuration MCTS" as an elective exam. I have already got the MCDST certification and did notice that there is an upgrade using 70-621 but is unavailable as an elective exam.

My confusion is:

1) Will the 70-620 still be an equivilant upgrade for MCDST?

2) Is it worth doing this exam?


Cheers

I am going to answer this lonely topic, to say that certifications are different. I know a Microsoft MVP who has two near equivalent certifications, but he had to get both of them.

MCDST: Microsoft Certified Desktop Support Technician

vs.

Windows Vista Configuration MCTS (Two separate links)

Just read those three links. I think they should back up what I said. The certifications are different. I feel that contacting a support technician about this type of question would be needed if you are rather concerned!

70-621 is the upgrade for MCDST to MCITP:Enterprise Support Technician, 70-621 will also count towards your MCSA & MCITP:Enterprise Administrator certifications.
