MCITP vs MCSA/MCSE training material
I know there are loads of threads about MCSA/MCSE/MCITP. I *think* that what I want to know hasn't been answered already but, if it has, apologies!
I was all set to go along the MCSA/MCSE route and it was straightforward ... 70-270, 70-290, 70-291 etc. I got the MS books for the latter two exams and have found them useful and interesting.
I've looked into the many, somewhat confusing, exams that aim towards the variations of MCITP and it doesn't appear that any cover material similar to what's in the 70-290 and 70-291. I realise that the MCITP is aimed really at Windows 2008 and Windows 7 rather than Windows 2003 and XP.
Can anyone tell me which of the new exams/books are closest to covering the material in 70-290 and 70-291? I guess that much of the material is similar but I suspect that some of the dialogue boxes etc. may have been updated. I'm somewhat old fashioned and like to go to a large book store to actually look through the books but those that I've seen have small IT sections and very few have specialist IT material (as opposed to "Windows 7 for the elderly" or "How to buy or sell successfully on eBay" etc.)
