    Default 70-698 - no cert?

    Just passed 70-698 today (barely!), and noticed that the exam had appeared on my transcript, but no certification. On checking the MCP site, it looks like only 70-697 will give you a Microsoft Specialist cert, and both together will give you a MCSA, but nothing for 698 on its own.

    Anyone know if this is normal for a new exam and if it's likely to change?? I previously passed 70-680 a few years back, which was very similar to this exam in terms of topics covered, and it gave a cert on its own (previously MCTS, now MS Specialist).

    Thanks . Bought the booster pack with the practice exam, only other resource was the MS Press book. Was all done on a bit of a whirlwind, only bought the book a couple of weeks ago! The practice exam helped quite a lot. Passed first time so didn't need the resits in the end.

    Found this link where the comments at the bottom basically confirm that 698 won't get a cert on its own.

    Can anyone confirm if this exam does or does not reward an MCP certification?
