    OK, so I have had the weekend off from studying after passing the Exchange 2007 exam (even though I was working on a migration project).

    I already have the client exam so only need the 70-647 and 70-649.

    So the question is, anyone who has already done the upgrade did they start with the 70-647 or the 70-649?

    Any feedback would be appreciated.

    I did the client exam first (Vista), then I did 70-649 (upgrade exam) before I did the 70-647.

    Was there any reason you did the 70-649 first?

    Two reasons

    1. The 70-649 came out first &
    2. The 70-649 is the TS exam, which means that it's "based" on the actual technologies and the 70-649 is the Pro exam, which means that it's "based" on your job role. Even if both those exams came out at the same time I would have done it the way I did, it made/makes sense to me. I don't think I would have do so well if I didn't know the in's and out's of the tech then be tested on how I'd work/implement them... IMO :)

    Necro posting!

    Which 70-649 book did you guys use the office MS one or a different one?

    The 70-649 has some bad reviews on Amazon and seems to cover the 70-648 as well.

    Any input is appreciated.
