    Default "072" Series exams?

    Ok, I've searched all over the place and I seem to find the same answer everywhere.

    Anyway- the question: Is the "072" series exams the EXACT same as the "070" series? As in, do they fullfill MCP status and go towards MCSA/MCSE just the same? I've only read speculation by everyone, but have not read anyone who has taken advantage of the Academic Alliance yet and took a 72-XXX exam

    I'm a student at a university thats part of the academic alliance. I'd love to take advantage of the free voucher for my 1st MCP exam within the next 2 weeks just as long as it counts just as much as the 070 series exam, but I don't want to waste my time if it won't go towards MCSA/MCSE.

    Sorry if theres a thread out there on this already- searched for the past 20 minutes to find nothing on it... only that its an Academic Alliance test... not whether it applies directly to MCSA credit the exact same as the 70 series.

    I'll call PearsonVue on Monday to get a solid answer, but was wondering if anyone knows in advance.

    Exactly. Thats all I come across. I don't find anything saying, "These are the same exact exams as 070, only cheaper." I don't see anyone saying they have ACTUALLY signed up for/taken 072 exams and received same credit as a 070. It says theres the exams for them at discounted prices, but doesn't have in writing that they actually go towards the certification.

    Theres always catches for "free" things, and I want to make sure that the $150 exam I'll get for free will count just the same as the full priced one... in writing.

    The AATC testing program offers students and instructors of academic institutions (high schools and post-secondary schools) the opportunity to take a subset of the Microsoft Certified Professional (MCP) exams at a reduced price.
    I wouldn't worry about it too much, it seems like the only exclusions are the MCSE-specific exams. For everything else in MCSA,MCDST,MCAD,MCTS, they are according to pearson's website qualifying exams.
