Well this morning I did it. I became a MCITP: Windows 7 MCITP Enterprise Desktop Support Technician. I wrote the upgrade exam (70-682) which is based on 70-680 MCTS: Windows 7, Configuring and 70-685: Windows 7, Enterprise Desktop Support Technician
This is an exam that I have be “working” on for a while, it all started with the Ottawa Windows 7 Study group. I got the MS Press book before the group even started and I finished reading the book long before the group has its first meeting. Needless to say I never really join the study group. Not too long ago I saw that there was an upgrade exam and I decided then that it made more sense to write one exam to get two certifications. So that is what I did.
Yes, I have already decide what my next exam is going to be and it will be 70-432 : Microsoft SQL Server 2008, Implementation and Maintenance. Although the SQL 2005 version of this exam was the “hardest” exam ever. It still make sense for me to write this exam since I’m always working with SQL.
And yes it has been ~20 months since I wrote my last exam. (70-647)
