Today, someone asked me “Which do you typically recommend as the introductory course for the 6424,25,26 pathway, etc…6421, 6430, 6420?” 

Well, it depends on the student’s START– experience & previous training.

If you’re looking to becoming a certified systems administrator in Microsoft, or you’re already a sys.admin and you’re looking for more distinction, here’s a SUPER chart from Microsoft Learning!  You’ll find it here:  CHART from MS LEARNING

And if you’re a trainer, bookmark the site above!

The chart is specific for those looking for administrative like jobs (Microsoft has also conveniently identified the related job roles at the same site).

Here’s a quick overview of the Windows 7 exams.  Like Vista, it follows the MCTS & MCITP model.  Basically, you start with the “core” technology exam 70-680. 

Once you pass the 70-680,  distinguish yourself by pursuing the Windows 7 professional series exam 70-686  — OR— 70-685.  More information can be found on Microsoft’s website here and here.
