    Default 2007 or 2010 Exchange Certs - Seeking Advice

    Hi,

    After some advice regarding Exchange Certs.

    Currently I have MCSE 2003, have done 70-649 and going to take 70-647 shortly. Have been working in the industry for about 8 years now. Just started a new job which is seeing me work on many customer accounts all with exchange 2003-2007. I have done the 2003 Exchange exams years back but my knowledge is very lacking in exchange due to not using it often. I want to study and get certified in this now but am confused as to whether i go down the 2010 path or do 2007.

    After opinions/advise from anyone out there that has done these exams.

    Also any lab setup advice would be great also. Just setup a new pc at home for this purpose Core i7 860, 8gb ram, 4TB Raid 5 etc.. so should be sufficient to run at least 5+ full 64bit 08 server’s.

    Since you're working with 2007 as part of your job I would start there, the changes for 2010 build nicely on-top of that but learning enough Exchange 2007 to do the MCTS/MCITP will put you in a better position immediately with your day job.

    I was asking that question myself a few months ago and i think the option must be 2007 -> 2010. if you're already working with 2007, starting with 2007 is the best way to go.

    I'm another one in the boat of learning 2007 then moving on to 2010.

    If you really want to learn 2010 throw it on a box and play it with so you can say that at least you have some experince with it.

    I would do the MCTS 2007 and play with it for a while, then move on to 2010 and do the full path to ITP on the latest version
