    The 70-646 I took today I passed, this was my 2nd exam on the track to complete the Server Admin 2008 MCITP certification.

    All I need now is to complete the 70-640, which I am aiming to do at the end of September. Started reading the MS Press book on the way home from work today.

    Quite happy with things thus far.

    My track thus far has been;

    70-620 (Apr 2010)
    70-680 (May 2010)
    70-642 (Jul 2010)
    70-646 (Aug 2010)

    So if I can knock over 70-640 in Sept, then I will be happy. Will then use the period of Oct to knock over the ITILv3 Foundations exam/cert. Then jump back to the windows ones. With the plan to do 70-623 and then 70-686. Then I'll get onto 70-652 for some Hyper-V stuff.

    I would have thought the 70-622 exam would be something you'd be focused on more than the 70-623?

    Thanks to all the responders. Appreciate it. I really like the forums, so glad I found this place. It's a good motivator.

    I am a Unix Team Leader and Unix Systems Specialist. Although I have had a long career over 10+ years in IT. Started out with Netware / NT, then found Linux which got me into Unix. Although honestly I would call myself a cross platform tech support guy. As I have a good understanding of both platforms and can troubleshoot pretty much either platform.

    This whole certification stuff was me going, **** I need some certs on my CV and hell I spend a bit of time on a train each day. So I need to turn this time into something productive. So I started on the track of reading the books, since MS Press books are reasonable priced when bought online from overseas. Oddly enough they cost a huge amount in Australian book stores.

    So far so good.

    Thanks for the feedback, hopefully I can also help someone take the leap and give it a go.

    Don't think I am going to bother with any Vista MCITP's, will focus on getting both Windows 7 MCITP's and leave the 70-620 just to linger away.

    Got my 70-640 exam on Wednesday next week. If I pass, then I just got MCITP SA 2008.

    I'm going down the route of MCITP Server Admin soon but want to get my Security+ out the way first.

    Have already ordered my books and am looking forward to getting stuck in!

    Congrats on the pass purana!

    Good Luck Killian. I am hoping to complete mine on Wednesday. Have booked the 640 exam to wrap it up, since I did them in a odd order. Probably don't recommend doing it in a odd order. Although it hasn't hurt me much, just don't recommend it.

    EDIT: I may be tempted to turn my SA into an EA down the track if time permits say in 8 months. As I only need to complete 2 exams to make it a EA too. Since I already have a client exam done, just would need 647 and the other one I am missing.

    passed my 70-646 today as well :)

    plenty of questions on WDS, WSUS, DNS, DHCP, ADI stub zones and 2 questions on active directory policies

    none on IPv6 (whew!)

    basically learn the services, differneces between TS RAP, CAP and NAP

    how certificates are enrolled, federated trusts and ADI

    good luck!

    this was my first ms cert. am i an MCP now?

    next i will do infrastructure and active directory!

    Well done!

    MCP's have been replaced by MCTS on the newer exams but either way the answer is no.

    646 does not carry and MCTS certification with it although 640 and 642 do individually.
