I think microsoft's announcement to introduce the new MCSA certification is great. We can now earn certification sooner and go on to MCSE if we so desire. It just takes to long to get the MCSE done.

I agree

I think the sooner you get out & implement what you learned in Pro, Server, & AD, the easier the rest of the MCSE track would be to finish.

it is marketing

by somchai In reply to MCSA

I think it is marketing oriented style of Microsoft. In the past, many MCSE choose TCP/IP and IIS as elective in order to get MCP+I before they gain MCSE. Choosing TCP/IP and IIS is also make them able to grow up to MCSE+I if they want.

After MCP+I and MCSE+I are discontinued. Microsoft have to fill the grap between MCP and MCSE. MCSA is that one. The effect of MCSA would make MCSE choose 70-218 as elective in order to gain both MCSA and MCSE.

The idea of selection other vendors' certifications into MCSA is also for marketing. Microsoft was published the book for Network+, so it got much money from this popular cert. Choosing A+ as elective make Microsoft be able to print the book for other vendors' certs with MCSA credit. e.g. MCSA Study Guide: A+, etc.
