I passed my 70-646 today which completes my requirements for the MCSA: Windows Server 2008 and MCITP: Server Administrator on Windows Server 2008.
In the past 1.5 months I have managed to achieve 4 Microsoft certifications if you include the 2 MCTS requirements for the above certifications. I am very proud of this accomplishment but for those on the outside the timelines may seem very short. What this time frame does not show is the years of past effort and experience and in the last 4 months the hundreds of hours spent studying, labbing, in class courses and discussions with peers and classmates. It also does not show that I actually failed by 70-640 the first time around and I had to step back and regroup pass on my second try.
I have learned so much in the last few months but still have so much more to work on and learn. This is my first milestone in my Microsoft certification path and I am already looking eagerly to the next one.
