    Hi there,

    I have just started to think about taking my 70-647 exam to become an MCITP:EA so I get automatically updated to the new MCSA certification. After reading up on the new certification i`ve noticed that you can either be an MCITP:SA or an MCITP:EA to become certified with the new MCSA.

    Would I be correct in saying that I could actually take either the 70-646 or the 70-647 exam to get the MCSA credential?

    Many thanks, Mark

    Hi Mark, welcome to the forums.

    It appears that both MCITP:SA's and MCITP:EA's gain, two forum members mention gaining it in this thread: http://www.certforums.com/forums/wi...-microsoft-certified-solutions-associate.html

    Hey Mark, Welcome to CF!

    Just to clarify, the MCITP certification is earned by doing multiple exams, like the old MCSA and MCSE. The 70-647/70-646 exam is just one of the exams needed to earn the MCITP credential. Don't let the name of the exams "Pro: Windows Server 2008, Enterprise Administrator" or "Windows Server 2008, Server Administrator" mislead you. If you'd like, take a look at this link which will give you an idea of what is needed to obtain the MCITP credential.
