Picking what credits count to what?

    I recently passed the 680 exam and now have access to the MCP site. I've followed the process of getting my A+ and Network+ recognised and am just working on doing the Security+ now.

    My question is this. I currently have to do the 2 core exams to get the MCSA (which I hope to do over the next several months). I'm then intending on doing the ISA Security elective to go with the Security+ to get the Security specialisation MCSA cert. I'm just a little worried on whether or not me getting the Security+ on my transcript will make MS automatically use that particular cert as the elective for the basic MCSA (as opposed to the A+ and N+ combined elective).

    Would it be better for me to wait until I get the MCSA before I get the Security+ recognised by MS or would they use my A+ and N+ by default?

    I get the feeling I may have to discuss it with Microsoft directly but figured I'd try on here first and see if anyone has been in the same position before.

    erm.... someone can correct me if im wrong, but im fairly sure that exams aren't "used" when they count towards an exam. If you have them on the transcript, and they can count, they will count.
