    According to Microsoft:

    It looks like you either have to have one of these combinations:

    1. A+ & Network+
    2. A+ & Server+
    3. Security+

    See here.

    Once you have the required combination of exams, see here for the page to request Comptia to share your records with Microsoft.

    For alternative elective exams see here.

    Why so against the A+? I had been in the IT industry for five years before getting the A+, and even I learned something from it.
