    Hi
    Sorry for stupid question :-)
    At the moment I am working on 70-680 but I want to do MCITP, and I don't understand the difference (I suppose it is very little) between Enterprise Desktop Support Technician 7: Exam 70-680 and Exam 70-685 and Enterprise Desktop Administrator 7: Exam 70-680 and Exam 70-686

    Besides one more question
    How do I get MCITP? Example: Let's say I did 70-680 and I am learning towards 70-685, and I passed it as well, how will I obtain MCITP (not two separate certificates) how does it work?
    Sorry if it is noob question :-)

    There are no stupid questions

    The Enterprise Desktop Support Technician 7 is the MCDST replacement, the Enterprise Desktop Administrator 7 is at the same level as the MCITP: Server Admin and MCITP: Enterprise Admin (just different job roles).

    By passing the 70-680 and the 70-685 you will be automatically gain the MCITP credential, you can't earn the MCITP without the related MCTS.

    will they send me separate cert/paper for MCITP?

    will 685 be easier than 686 then?
    If I will do 70-680 and both 685 and 686 do I get 2 MCITP?

    cheers for help :)

    You would get a separate cert for each MCTS passed and one for the MCITP after passing the two MCTS's. You don't get paper certs unless you request them (at a cost) but get a digital cert that you can download and print.

    According to reports, yes. But then again, what may be easier for one, may not be for another. It just depend on your experience and knowledge.

    You'll get the:

    MCTS: Windows 7, Configuration
    MCITP: Enterprise Desktop Support Technician 7 &
    MCITP: Enterprise Desktop Administrator 7
