    Hi all.

    Have Comptia A+, N+ and also passed the 70-290 exam. Now studying for 70-291. I have been told that passing the 70-291 would make me MCSA certified. Is that correct?

    Was not aware that Microsoft recognised CompTIA exams.


    Cheers

    Yes Comptia exams do count as an 'Elective' but you will still need a client operating systems exam (70-680 for example).

    Yes, A+ AND N+ together will fulfill an elective requirement for MCSA.

    U also need to pass a client exam, along with 70-291 to get your MCSA

    You will also need to publish your Comptia certs to Microsoft, see here then Click on the "Verification to Microsoft & others" link to the left.

    Yup, you would need a client exam as well.
    The 70-620(Vista) is bed-wettingly easy.
