    No mate, having MCDST and passing 70-621 will mean you become an MCITP: Enterprise support BUT not an MCTS: Vista. 70-621 is a Pro exam so you don't gain an MCTS by sitting any of the Pro exams. You only get an MCTS: Vista config by sitting 70-620. Jim

    Sorry mate but you're wrong. By already having MCDST and then passing 70-621 you gain both MCITP:EST and MCTS: Vista.

    Ref - MS page - Linky

    David, if you're looking for a guide for the 70-621 I wrote one a while back. The link for it is here

    Quote From Microsoft website

    Upgrade your MCDST certification to earn MCTS and MCITP certifications
    As a Microsoft Certified Desktop Support Technician (MCDST), you can upgrade your credential to include a Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist (MCTS) certification and a Microsoft Certified IT Professional (MCITP) certification, by passing just one exam.

    It could happen to anyone. It's just an oversight especially when confronted with info overload like info on M$ sites :D

    Always, always, always, ALWAYS get this sort of information directly from the vendor's website... NEVER rely on someone on the forums (or even a company rep!!) to give you the correct info. This stuff changes far too often to rely on a single individual.
