    Any reason why you want to do the 620: Vista exam?

    Apart from that on the Windows 7 track, I would do them in the following order (simply because that's the order I did them and for level of hardness):

    680
    685
    686

    Hi,

    officially there is no particular order in which you NEED to take them.
    The 620 is for Vista anyway and so does not 'fit in' with any of the others as they are Win7 certs.
    It is usually taken that the 680 exam, being the MCTS cert and therefore the 'root' of the 2 MCITP exams should be taken before either the 685 or 686.
    It is, though, entirely up to you.
