    First of all this information is available on the MCP site through a webcast from Dec called Vista certifications upgrade your MCDST Session 1 - but you need to login. So for those of you who cant log in but still want some info on the Vista exams ill try relay the information onto you.

    First of all these are the Vista exams and when they are coming out - NB to take any exam on the right hand side you first need to pass the 70-620. Enterprise Support will be more or less the new MCDST.

    These below are all the exams:

    This is the training MS will have - interesting to note no book for the upgrade from MCDST so you could end up buying the 622 and a good reference book to learn the basics....

    Below is the upgrade from MCDST. Now the most important thing is, once you pass 621 you also get 620! More like MCP ---> MCDST - only now it seems you can display it more as it has more meaning! So pass your upgrade and you become TS:Vista and MCITP:Enterprise Desktop Support.

    But there is more news! 70-620 will satisfy the client elective for both MCSA and MCSE (on both 2000 and 2003) as will 70-210 (Windows 2000 Pro) and 70-270 (Windows XP Pro). It can also satisfy the elective requirement for MCSA and MCSE (on both 2000 and 2003) as long as the candidate does not use it as both their client elective and a general elective – it can satisfy one or the other but not both.

    MCDSTs will need to take only one exam (70-621) to earn the MCTS and MCITP: Enterprise Support certifications instead of following the direct path of three exams—so you can demonstrate your skills on Windows XP and on Windows Vista. Microsoft Learning is offering special savings just for MCDST credential holders: 40 percent off on the Windows Vista upgrade exam (70-621) when it becomes available in February 2007. Details of this limited-time offer, more information about the upgrade exam requirements, and training materials will be available in early 2007.

    Getting the 620 book and the 622 book will cover 621... because 620 + 622 = 621. That's the reason you get 620 and 622 when you do 621. Makes sense, huh? ;)

    Sales tactic:

    620 book = £30+
    622 = 30+

    total = 60+

    621 book would cost £30! :biggrin

    i was thinking this could well have been the 1st book out!

    The reason there's not a 70-621 book is the same reason why there wasn't a 70-240 book, a 70-292 book, or a 70-296 book. The information is covered separately.

    If there were a 70-621 book, it certainly wouldn't cost £30. It would contain just about EVERYTHING from 70-620 and 70-622 (because you need ALL of it for 70-621). Thus, if it were available, people would buy it instead of buying the 70-620 and 70-622 books individually, even for people taking the individual exams. They're not going to throw away revenue that easily, Zim. ;)
