    Generally i have noticed most people taking the path of 70-290 before 70-291, although its up to you, you have to do both at some point anyway!

    290 trust me. 291 is a big jump up in difficulty

    I agree with both of the above. I use to teach both the 290 & 291, the 291 is a very very big jump.

    You can take any order ,it is up to you .
    although 70-291 is a big jump ,it doesnot matter with the order if you want to take both,
    some of them also can pass 70-291 before 70-290.
    The most important is to believe in you .
    good luck to you .

    +1 for 70-290!!
    The 70-291 has a huge amount of info you need to know, passing the 70-290 first will help tremendously.
    Btw I used the MS-Press books, M$ website and forums such as this to study.
