    Default 70-680 = MCTS still?

    If I pass my 70-680 do I get MCTS status or not anymore?

    Yes but Microsoft will be doing away with the MCTS and MCITP title at the end of the month. The title will then be MCSA. But you will also need to pass either the 70-685 or 70-686 to become MCSA for Windows 7.

    The MCTS title for passing the 70-680 will still be available after January 31, 2014. It is only the MCITP titles (680+685 -or- 680+686) that are going away.

    Until January 31, 2014, when you earn your MCSA: Windows 7 certification you also earn your MCTS: Windows 7, Configuration certification and either your MCITP: Enterprise Desktop Administrator on Windows 7 certification (Exams 680 and 686) or your MCITP: Enterprise Desktop Support Technician on Windows 7 certification (Exams 680 and 685).

    After January 2014, you can no longer earn the MCTS: Windows 7, Configuration, MCITP: Enterprise Desktop Administrator on Windows 7, or MCITP: Enterprise Desktop Support Technician on Windows 7 certifications, but Exams 680, 685, and 686 will still be required for the MCSA: Windows 7 certification.

    I stand corrected. I must have read the Windows Client portion incorrectly. Sorry.
