  • Its personal preference on your goals and how quickly you can study.  Some of the server 2008 exams expire on July 31st so your best bet might be to go for SA with 70-649 and 70-646 and then upgrade to MCSA 2012 with 70-417.  

    EA path would involve 70-649, 70-647, and a client exam 70-680, 70-681, or 70-620.

    Be kind and Mark as Answer if I helped.

  • I would go for MCITP SA, the EA exam is _much_ harder. Also, if you log in to mcp.microsoft.com, on the left you have "My Certification Planner" where you can plan your next certification. A very handy tool if you already have certifications and want to know how to upgrade to a specific certification!

  • Hi,

    I wrote a wiki about upgrading from MCSA/MCSE 2003 to MCSE: Server 2012 by upgrading to MCITP: Server Administrator first:
