    Hi all,

    In the next few months, I'm planning on doing MCDST followed by the Vista (70-261) and 7 (70-682) upgrade exams.

    Completing 70-261 gives:
    MCITP: Enterprise Desktop Support Technician
    MCTS: Windows Vista, Configuration

    However, I'm unsure as to whether 70-682 gives the MCTS & MCITP, or just the MCITP. After reading this thread (http://www.certforums.co.uk/forums/newreply.php?do=newreply&p=352273), I'm still none the wiser as two MS sources are saying the exact opposite.

    I've e-mailed Microsoft, but I was wondering if anybody in here could shed any more light on the matter in the meantime?

    Thanks,

    Gav

    You will get the MCTS:Configuring Windows 7 on your transcript if you pass the 70-682.
    The confusion seems to have arisen from a foobar at their end and was rectified in September last year. I've seen it verified on other peoples transcripts.

    Remember that the exam does cover some of the contents from both the 680 and 685 exams

    I know. I'm planning on getting both of the books and studying as though I was doing the exams separately.
