    I have recently passed mcdst and I took and passed the 70-620 exam the other day and will be looking to do the 70-622 to get MCITP

    I wanted to know what other exams I would have to take to get MCSE status? :eek:

    the 70-620 its relativley more easier than say the 70-271 the xp equivalent, but I will warn you if you have not come across them yet you will have about 5 simulation questions,which are not in the MCDST exams they took me by surprise
    there is 64 questions unlike the dst exams you get plenty more time to do it though

    Number of questions can vary. It may not always be 64.

    5 sims??? Umm... are you sure? :blink Not saying you're wrong, as things may have moved on, but I have done 620 too.

    Not sure if the poster is confusing a sim with a question that has an exhibit, will soon find out though. Booking the exam soon... :study

    Well, I'll be interested to see if the exam has changed. If so, it'll be one of the quickest changes on record. I only took mine in March.

    Fair play mate, sims were only really in the core exams for the MCSE so it looks like MS has now included them in the new client OS exam from what you said.

    Perhaps it is a recent addition? From what GiddyG has said he didn’t get any sims but he took the exam a while back.

    The 622 was a heck of a lot different to the 620. From memory, it was more like the 271 I took recently.

    MS Press with the included MeasureUp questions. Also using Vista Business on my laptop and Vista Enterprise on my PC.

    Did you use both books when you took the exam?
