    Granted, I have worked for Microsoft partners the last 4 years, so this might not mean much, but no one cared when I got MCSE 2000: Security and MCSA 2000/2003: Security. However, I got numerous offers, including the one I took when I changed jobs recently, that MCITP: EA did help me get. The other certs that helped with that were VCP, MCITP: EMA, and MCSE in that order.

    With that said, it is only one exam and it wouldn't take much if anything to prep for it if you're already sitting 298, and you have the free retake promo.

    FYI - the free retake promo ends June 30, 2010. I realize this thread was from a while ago, but if you haven't made a decision you might want to factor this deadline in.
