    A work collegue of mine wants to get his certs and I told him that he could either go the route I did with all M$ exams or CompTIA exams as well as.


    Is that right you can use A+ (and others?) as part of your MCSE. If that is the case, what is the route and what exams do they replace instead of all M$ ones.

    Pheonix is correct, (off the top of my head) you can use A+ and Network+ toweards your MCSA only.

    Server+ also counts in this, so it's any two of these CompTIA's count as an MCP towards MCSA, but NOT MCSE.

    I believe that's why the 70-218 was introduced - it is then one of the electives towards to MCSE.

    HTH.

    Hi All

    I maybe a tad confused on this but, I was sure that the MCSA was a subset of the MCSE qualifications therefore, you can use them towards the MCSE. (Can you tell that I have been doing lots of maths on my current courses?)

    If the MCSA is composed of 4 straight MCPs, then yes, it carries on, Sandy. However, if it is 3 MCP's plus the 2 x compTIA option, then the extra MCP still needs to be completed to make the full 7 of MCSE.

    And I'm cr@p at maths ! :rolleyes:

    Not sure if this is of interest. The A+ & either Net+ or Server+ only count as an elective on the MCSA only, but the Security+ exam from Comp Tia is an elective for either MCSA or MCSE in it's own right.
