    Forgive me, all, for I have sinned.. It's been quite a few years since my last exam.. :twisted:

    I should really get back on the cert bandwagon and validate all of this knowledge I have ;) That being said.. I'm not sure what to start with. All I know is that I want to take the minimum amount of exams to achieve the certification.

    I currently have an old MCSA2003(270,290,291), MCDST(271, 272), MCDST Vista Upgrade(621), Win7 Upgrade(685) and Win7/Office2010 Deployment(681).

    I believe my initial path plan would be:
    - MCSA2003 -> MCITP: SA
    Exams required: 70-648 & 70-646 (Does this satisfy?)

    My plan after that would be:
    - MCITP: SA -> MCITP: EA
    Exams required: 70-647 & 70-643 (Is this right? / Is EA retiring now? / Is it MCSE: Server Infrastructure instead?)

    I'm not quite sure what has happened/is happening with the MS certs since two years ago.. so any advice would be much appreciated!

    Certifications: MCP (271, 272, 270, 290, 291, 621, 681, 685), MCDST, MCTS, MCITP, MCSA, Security+, CCA(XA6.5)

    That sounds right to me. It wouldn't be a MCSE as this does not exist for 2008 (the MCSA does though) I know some of the exams you plan to do are being retired in July this year (70-643 for one) so check on that beforehand, although it really depends on what schedule for completing them is

    Certifications: MCSE 2003, MCSA 2008
