    70 -270 or 70-620
    70-284 (70-285) or 70-236

    70-350 or 70-351

    Best :)

    I find a nice warm relaxing bath the best to be honest, it has got me through plenty of MS Press books. :twisted:

    Uhm, that's a hard choice. :D

    To be honest, if you are still yet to do the client exam, it probably isn't best to jump ahead and start thinking of electives. Take the exams one at a time, especially as you are just beggining on the MCSE path.

    I think this all depends on the individual. I would have a different choice than others, simply because everyones interests and experience levels are very different.

    I do have to admit, I find the 70-620 being an elective for the MCSE quite interesting. If someone wants to pass their MCSE with less effort, then that would definately be the elective of choice.

    Ahhh, now that's different. :D

    Again, it all depends on what you want to do. Do you see yourself supporting Vista, or XP more? Are you currently in a role that you have to support either of these?

    I think you should concentrate on the present as most of the technology will be around for some years to come.

    Also when the time is right you can then do the upgrade exams

    ISA 2006 is almost the same as ISA 2004, it's more like a service pack than a big change in product. There is more study material around for 2004 though. Good thing is, it's nearly all relevant for the 2006 exam. I'm going to do the 2006 one when I can be bothered to crack down with my studying again. :)

    Exactly right: you should concentrate on the present, not the future. You can always upgrade your certifications from XP to Vista... and once XP certifications are gone, they're gone.

    Personally, there is no "best path". If there were, there'd be only one certification path for everyone, and there'd be no electives. Therefore, you should take electives that are most applicable to what you're currently doing (NOT what you WANT to be doing).

    If you've got no IT experience then I think the A+ and N+ used together for the elective is a good start and confidence builder/ It worked for me anyway
