I passed 70-620 today, which was my first MCTS exam. It’s just Vista configuration, pretty easy test, although I was amused by how consumer focused this stuff is now which crap like windows media and whatnot. They really are going for a three tier model like Cisco, although I’ll never bother with the MCA while I’d like to get a CCIE some day.
It was a lame test, I should have taken 70-624 which is about the new Business Desktop Deployment software which I’m hoping is RIS done right, although I haven’t used it yet. I guess that’s why, I’ve been using Vista a bit since I’m supporting it at work now. Either meets a pre-requisite for the upcoming MCITP: Enterprise Administrator, which looks like the next certification to replace my MCSE: Server 2003 cert. I guess I just took the easier route. I think the other Server 2008 exams are out, but I’m not using it yet. I don’t know if I’ll get more Vista certs for the MCDST equivalent next or go back to something harder like Cisco or LPI. Upgrading to an LPIC-3 or finishing my CCNP would probably be a better use of my time.
