    Hi all,

    i just started a self-study for an MCSE, with the introduction of vista, would it be advisable to take the vista option that is 70-620 or the XP version 70-270 for a start.

    Thanks

    IMO, I would do 70-270.

    The Vista cert follows the same exam objectives as 70-270, just the Vista version.

    70-620 Exam Objectives

    Where I work, most of our computers are running Windows XP Professional including about 10 Vista machines and from what I can gather, most companies are sticking with XP due to Vista problems with backward compatibility which has been sited by Steve Ballmer (hence Windows 7 going to be 'totally' backward compatible).

    70-270 is great to start of with and the 70-620 is basically going over what XP can do, but in the Vista environment.

    Good luck! :biggrin

    Why don't you do both? You can do the 70-270 for the client requirement and the 70-620 for the elective requirement. How much experience do you have in IT?

    Go on be part of this community and introduce yourself here :)

    In all honesty, I've taken both (using 620 as my elective) and found the 20-270 'more rewarding'. The Vista examination is very much IMO selling the product, not knowledge on the product. Bear in mind 70-270 is SOLELY windows XP Pro, the Vista 620 exam is all flavours of vista.
