New generation of Microsoft Certifications

Nigelblogged about the new generation of Microsoft Certifications here. It’s interesting that they are becoming more focused on skills …etc

This presents me with a wee problem though, I am currently studying for MCAD and am not too far from sitting the first exam.

Now the question is, should someone like me go through the entire 03 MCAD certificate or should I do the first exam and then start focusing on the new generation stuff??

I think I will go for both! Is that a good thing to do, what do you guys think?
