    Someone correct me if I'm wrong?
    Thanks for that, just checked on the MS site and your right...

    NICE congrats!!!

    May I suggest 70-270?

    should be cake if you already passed 290

    All you need after that is an elective and voila, MCSA

    at the time, I was dying to try out an infosec exam. Sec+ was right up my alley. I was originally going to take 290/291 first, but I decided to try something different.

    The exam itself is notorious for badly worded questions. however, if you know your stuff well, youll do fine. The sec+ exam section on this site is full of good study advice, and the technotes are top notch; and they are FREE!!! I used these to pass in a little under 2 months, along with a few books. I had minimal security experience prior to my exam. I would recommend this exam for sure, especially for MCSA/E track. You get the Sec+ credit, AND it counts towards your MCSA/E. No brainer, IMO.

    Noob question, if you get security + is that enough to become a MCSA? let's say you nailed 270, 290 and 291?
