  • Hi TWHarrington,

    Interested on Active Directory on win2k8 and network infrastructure for win2k8, so what should be the first step that I should go? Thanks.

  • @snopjoy,

    The MCTS is a progression to the MCITP certification.  What you have to do is locate the requirements for the final level of certification you want to have.  Find the required tests, and the elective tests that you must complete and plan from there.  To be an MCITP Server Administrator you have to take Exam 70-640 and 70-642 before you should take 70-646.  Once you complete these three tests you will be an MCITP, once you complete the 640 or the 642 you will be an MCTS.

    Does that help?

  • Studying Network Infrastucture is easier than Active directory Infrastructure. So start with a client exam or network infrastructure. That knowledge will help to active directory.
