    Question Question about MCSA: Windows 8

    It was mentioned in the below website that MCITP or MCSA Windows 7 + Exam 689 = MCSA Windows 8

    http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en...windows-8.aspx

    For my case, I already had MCITP (Enterprise Support Technician on Windows Vista).
    Just want to verify will I be certified for MCSA Windows 8 if I pass 70-689 exam?

    That's how I read it as well. But I'd follow-up with Microsoft to make sure!

    No, only the Win7 certs count for the upgrade. It says that right above the box that lists the eligible MCITP and MCSA certs.

    Yes, thats correct. If you have MCITP: EDA or MCITP: EDT/ or the re-named MCSA: Windows 7 you are only required to take 1 upgrade exam for the full MCSA: Windows 8 in exam 70-689. The problem is that there isn't any study material for the upgrade path...at least I havent found any yet.

    In your case, Vista is not included in the upgrade path... you would need to take the 70-680 --> 70-685/70-686 --> 70-689 (for acheving MCSA: Windows 7 AND Windows 8 )

    OR 70-687 --> 70-688 (for just MCSA: Windows 8 )
