  • Hi Waranyoo,

    There is not pre-requisite exam for 70-663

    But if you want to complete MCITP: Enterprise Messaging Administrator on Exchange 2010 certification, you should also pass the 70-662 exam besides 70-663

  • So the conclusion is I can sit in any exam first (70-662 and 70-663). But to become MCITP qualified I need to pass BOTH the exams in ANY order. Please correct me if I am wrong.

    And, is Microsoft Elearning tool enough to prepare for 70-662 and 70-663 exam? Or is there any other book that you guys recommend reading. 

    Appreciate the response. 

    Thanks

  • Thanks Mr.Wharty. You've been of great help. 

    One more question, is the exam only multiple questions and case studies or would it include Virtual Lab as well?
