          Oh!

          BTW, Well done on passing the exam. Keep the momentum going and get book in for the next one. You can always re-schedule if you think your not quite ready.

            Congratulations! Another DST on the way!

            As said, the MCSE is only 7 exams from a fairly large menu

            Note also you can, after your MCDST, do a single exam (70-621 IIRC) to get:
            MCTS: Vista Configuration
            MCITP: Enterprise Support
            Tom Jones
            MCT, MCSE (2000:Security & 2003), MCSA:Security & Messaging, MCDBA, MCDST, MCITP(EA, EMA, SA, EDA, ES, CS), MCTS, MCP, Sec+

              Useful site! Thanks for that

              Can I do more than one Core / elective exam on top of what is required? I like the idea of doing a bit more than whats required if it would help

              My 'rough plan' is as follows

              70-290
              70-291
              70-293
              70-294

              Then do my 70-270 to begin with (looks very similar to the 70-271 I passed)

              70-297

              70-350

              Then, I would look to do the 'new' courses (if it would be beneficial) say the 70-620 and 70-624, to cover my bases for vista. What do you think of this idea?

              Seeing as the 70-621 isnt listed in my curricular, I will ask if I can do this after I get my MCDST

                Re: Passed 70-271

                You can do as many electives as you like, but (unless you pick up the correct ones for "messaging" or "security", you will not get extra certifications.

                70-621 is not an elective but the DST is (note it does not replace 70-270 which is similar but a bit harder IMHO)

                Since 620 is one of the client OS options, it would be interesting to see if 621 (which gives the equivalent MCTS) will also count as an option to 620
