The Microsoft MCSE 70-620 Windows Vista exam is a universally-recognized certification exam that tests you in your knowledge of installing, configuring, and administering Windows Vista. According to Microsoft MCTS Certification, typical candidates for this certification have already had some experience with Windows clients, such as 2000 and XP, and have worked in a mid-to-large size computing environment before. In practice, many candidates for this exam have neither worked in a large computing environment or have had extensive practice with Windows Vista before. The exam does not test you on your ability to use Vista, per se, but rather on your ability to install, configure, and administer the software.
It is important for you to understand that this exam does not cover the actual use of Windows Vista, but rather, the configuration of Vista for business and enterprise purposes. That being said, a power user would have only a slight advantage over a typical user of Vista as the exam does not cover the gimmicks and special features of Vista.
