MS Enterprise Administrator

What do people recommend for the exam order for this certification path?  Upon looking at all the exam and subject content, it seems logical to take 70-640 first, but now I'm not so sure.

In fact I just hit a forum where some people said they took that one last?!

Just a quick personal background on me, I'm not new to being a Sys Admin (8 years or so), but have never taken exams before and am somewhat new to Server 2008.

it is really a personal preference. I will do it in the sequence if you know your stuff well.

different subject was testing you different skills.
I have done the upgrade path means 1 exam and consist of first 3 exams. (which is not fun)

build your confidence up by doing the first one.
If you feel confidence, you will continue to do the rest :)

Good luck for your exam.

After you study the exam prep material, I suggest doing something like Transcender for at least the first test (NOT as a substitute for actually learning the material though).  Part of passing Microsoft tests is learning how to take the tests, how to manage your time, getting a comfort level established, and learning how they want the questions answered!
