Part of my OU degree is going to have me studying the materials for 70-640 and 70-642 so I'll do the additional one myself and sit the three exams (can't remember the third modules number), hope to have it done by this time next year (the OU module in question doesn't start until October)

Was looking at doing an MCTS course just to get the MS logo but not at the moment... got enough to worry about with Summer projects without adding piles of study to the list. Best reserved for when the days are dark and cold

I've got MCTS, MCSA (Systems Administrator - not the new bloody Solutions Associate!!), MCP, ACSP and currently working towards CCNA. Will try to get Server 2008 MCITP if I can find the time.

I have a 20 metres breaststroke certificate if that's any good.

I have MCITP:EA and MCITP:EDST.
It was worth it just for the satisfaction of completing it. Definitely helps to get to interview stage (along with experience) in the current climate.

I have MCP MCTS MCSA MCSE MCITP EA CCENT and yes they do get you in the door especially with agencies, but lets face it if you don't use it you loose it, however I get more phone calls offering Linux work than you would believe and I have no Linux qualifications. The one thing above all else that has helped me is being DV cleared.
While in Oz it was my Microsoft certs that worked for me.

I have the compulsory MCSE (that includes MCP and MCSA) and the certification path is a never ending story, we have to keep on upgrading all the time, now Server 2008, Exchange, etc. In addition you need to add some specialist certification focus on a particular area like CCNA or Linux as mentioned, or VMware, buf
I decided three years ago to stop the certification roller coaster and focus on getting a degree in Computing, I believe the academic insight that you gain on the degree path should really glue with the technical bits acquired during experience and practical exams of the certifications... not sure yet if I’m right!

I got the old track: MCP - MCDST - MCSA - MCSA: S - MCSA: E - MCSE , etc...
The newer track: MCTS (Multiple) - MCITP (Multiple)
As well as the newest track: MCSA:2008
Not sure if I want to gain the new MCSE:2008 or just wait until Server 2012 or just complete my PGCert (will take 4 years, as I've just started, plus doing 1 module a year).

I didn't concentrate on professional certification until I finished my degree. Now a days, most certifications are valid for either 3 years or the support life of the product, whereas the degree (or any academic qualification, eg HNC/HND/CertHE/DipHE and any postgrad qualification PGCert/PGDip/Masters) is for life.
