    Default Windows 8 or Windows 7???

    Would it just be a good idea to get the Windows 8 cert, it will mostly trickle down, right?

    Also, what materials did/do you use to pass the exam (Darryl didn't write an MS book ).

    You could always do MCSA: Windows 7, then take the upgrade exam to MCSA: Windows 8.

    Check Amazon.com for study materials. Also check out CBT Nuggets or TrainSignal for training videos.

    Since I have been studying for the MCTS Win 7 cert it seems like forever I will probably still stick with windows 7. It depends what your more comfortable, but since most people still use win 7 or earlier I think windows 7 would probably be better. I use windows 7 all the time so I am more familair with it, I am not sure what windows OS you use the most. I would get certified in the OS you feel most comfortable with.

    moon child, I've been using windows7 since it came out & very proficient with it as well. But when i started studying for the MCSA windows7, I figured out it's heck of a lot harder than just operating the OS. Currently I'm almost done studying for Win8 MCSA & it seems like lot easier than WIn7....It's just my opinion...
