MOS - Word/Excel Expert exams RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I've got a little question which couldn't be answered by visiting the Microsoft Learning page:

    http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/certification/mos.aspx#certifications

    When I want to earn the Microsoft Office Master certification, I have to take the Word Expert exam (77-887) and the Excel Expert exam (77-888). Do I have to take the Word exam (77-881) before I can take the Word Expert exam and the Excel exam (77-882) before I can take the Excel Expert exam?

    Greetings,

    Toni

  • Hi Toni,

    No you don't as they're considered to be seperate certifications from what I can tell.  The certifications for Excel for example, read as follows;

    When you pass Exam 77-882: Excel 2010, you complete the requirements for the following certification(s):Microsoft Office Specialist: Microsoft Excel 2010

    When you pass Exam 77-888: Excel 2010 Expert, you complete the requirements for the following certification(s): Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS): Microsoft Excel 2010 Expert

     

    Good luck

  • Hi Toni,

    You can do them in any order you'd like. Remember though that you need a couple more to earn your Master Certification but those are the easy ones right?

    Good luck on taking the exams...

  • Hello,

    thanks for the information.

    My question was just for planning purposes since I'm busy earning the MS Exchange Certifications (passed 70-662 on Friday, yes! :-))
