  • It's for the upgrade exam - 70-648 (http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/exam.aspx?ID=70-648&locale=en-us#tab1}. 

     

    I have to ask - you signed up for a class and you weren't sure what it was for?

  • Hi,

    The course you are taking will prepare you for the following two certifications, which only require one exam each...

    Exam 70-640: TS: Windows Server 2008 Active Directory, Configuring
    Exam 70-642: TS: Windows Server 2008 Network Infrastructure, Configuring

    Once you've done this exam, you will be able to take 70-646 which will give you MCITP - Server Administrator

    From there you can do 70-643 (Server 2008 Applications Inrastructure, configuring) and then 70-647 for MCITP - Enterprise Administrator


    MCP, MCDST, MCTS x 5, MCITP x 2
