We managed to get 45 of these free due to MSDNAA and at £13.80 a pop for the rest, it worked cheap for our school, but still I am chuffed to bits..as is Ashman91!! :D
Two Questions :
1. Is this for the MCITP ?
2. Does the MCITP replace or will it replace the MCSE or what exactly ?
As a side note - not relating to this post but one of your posts ref the world travelling - you managed to look into tesco loans and if you dont mind me asking which bank was it that you are with - answer in a pm if required
We took these as the school cannot afford the exams for both of us to do the MCSE and MCITP. It covers a huge chunk of the requirements for both, but still some study to do. Might negotiate with MS to see if we can swap all out for a full qualification or something of that nature.
well done, tell us more about msdnaa, free is my kinda price!
I cant even get anything like this from my employer (NHS), good on ya.
I've been asking for some of them for ages.
MSDNAA costs us just shy of £4000 a year for our subscription. You get a certain amount of free exams with them, however you don't get the full exams for MCSA and MCITP etc. The ones I have done, cover a range of quals...My intention is to get all module passes for MCSE, MCITP, MCDC and MSDBA and then speak with MS to see if I can "trade them" for the full qualifications.
MCITP covers lots of different areas. You can be an MCITP in anything from Enterprise Desktop Administration to MCITP: Database Developer. All these require 2 or more exams to achieve.

MCTS is what you get for passing one of these. So at the moment I am an MCTS for Windows 7.
If I wanted an equivalent of an MCSA I would be looking at MCITP: Server Administrator (Which I am currently working on) and MCSE would be MCITP: Enterprise Administrator.
Now when I say equivalent there is a catch, the MCITP qualifcations are only valid for the life time of that product and as such will expire (unlike my MCSA).
You would have to take a full exam to get the full qualification I would have thought else it would be considered easier to do them in these small chunks.
Firstly well done, that is a very impressive list.
How did you go about studying for all of those exams as well as working?
Each module is roughly 2 hours of study, and we have been studying on and off since May. We studied in lunch breaks, free time, at home etc.
Congrats on pass the courses.

if i pass certain items could i still put those on a CV as a gain qualification even though it havent taken all the exams to get the full MCTS?
Has anyone got any feedback on the online training resources such as Collection 6292
