    Must admit I was a little nervous about this one as with the A+ nearly all of it is something you can relate to, and the N+ has fringe topics that are very conceptual, not that I struggled with it but ya know...

    Anyways I can't remember the exact score but was mid 800s the gf worked it out as 92% so can't moan really.

    Question is where from here, think I'd like to get the MCTS with Win7 client and then the MCSA, using the CompTIA exams as the elective credit. Unless anyone has a reason why that's a particularly bad idea? :D

    Big thanks to everyone here, I'm usually on every day but lurking is my style half the time.

    Congrats!

    Can't see any reason you shouldn't use A+ & N+ as elective for MCSA... makes sence to me

    Thanks guys...

    I don't have the experience, but the boss of my current SME happens to be running server 2003. Nod nod wink wink.

    Incidentally, is there any particular reason MS dropped the allowance of the CompTIA electives for the new set of qualifications? Greed, or something else?

    1/4.

    they havent having the A+,N+ and MCDST means you only have to do the two main exams for the MCSA including the BEAST.

    I know it can be used for the MCSA/MCSE, but I did refer to the new set of qualifications like the MCITPs etc.

    So you can use the A+ for one of the three required exams for the MCSA? Stupid question but wouldn't employers prefer you to have MCITP qualifications because they concentrate on newer technology?

    Nope, you can use A+ AND N+ for one of the FOUR requirments.

    But with regards to the newer certs, if depends what a company is using, so, why not try for them all? :biggrin
    Thats my plan in the long run.
