Certifications received

I just passed my final test for the MCITP- Enter. Administrator and I logged into the MS website to view my certs, and I'm a bit confused as what I'm actually certified in, here is a print out of what I saw:



Can someone explain what the heck I'm certified in, especially the MCTS portion of this image.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The MCITP:EA tests prior to the Final IT PRO test award you with a MCTS for different parts of Windows 2008, depending on the test. As a result you hold every certification listed on that page. MCITP:EA, an MCTS for Business Desktop Deployment, 3 MCTS certs for Windows 2008, MCSE, MCSA, and MCSA: Messaging. Also, if you chose to take the Upgrade your MCSE exam, you were awarded three MCTS certifications for that one test.

Edit to add: Microsoft decided to change their certification system so that you receive a certification for every test you take. This is mostly to allow better acknowledgement for people who are working toward an MCITP in something but haven't completed *all* the tests. With the MCSA and MCSE, you could complete 2 or 3 tests and you wouldn't really be able to show that on a resume until you completed the tests required for full completion of the MCSA/MCSE
