    Hey,

    You can go straight into your 70-697 exam if you want to. The MTA is kind of a waste if you've been working as a SysAdmin for a while as you already have those 'skills'. Its only what Microsoft recommends, its up to you however

    You can just do the one exam if you want. Completing any exam like that gives you the MCP (Microsoft Certified Professional) title.

    So completing 70-697 will give you an MCP in Configuring Windows Devices. Also completing 70-698 will gain you an MCP in Installing and Configuring Windows 10 and an MCSA (Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate) in Windows 10.

    If you pass 70-697, I would do 70-698 as that exam is apparently a lot easier.

    MS actually recommend the 698 before the 697, but you can do either first. You need both to get the MCSA certification.

    I'm actually studying the 697 right now, having taken 698. I will say, doing 698 first is not only easier, but it introduces you to areas of the 697 as a primer, as the 697 does go into more detail in some areas. It also makes the monster that is 697 easier to swallow, as it means you can focus on areas such as InTune a lot more.
