    I have now completed all Microsoft qualifications set by my employer; I still have a credit with Microsoft for one more exam.. I want to continue on my network path as that’s what I mainly do at present, i.e. Cisco and HP switch / router / configuration, firewall setups etc
    My question is what would be the best Microsoft exam path to take that would enhance my current network skills.
    Are there any firewall or Network paths within Microsoft, I have done allot of work with SBS 2003 and 2008, and noticed that they have a 70-642 TS: Windows Server 2008 Network Infrastructure, But I do not really want to go down that path, Will be taking the Cisco 642-813 in about a month, I deal allot with the Clavister firewall at present, so a exam that deals with firewalls would be great...

    Any thoughts ?

    How about looking into ISA 2006? As far as I remember ISA is also a part of SBS so this would complement what you already have plus your wish for something firewall related.

    Thanks both,

    think I will look at the 70-351 (isi 2006) and then move on to the Forefront Threat Management Gateway
