Hi guys, im new in the comunity (first post) so, sorry if this is not the right area for my question. Im new to Microsoft certifications and im a littlebit lost.

I decided to pursue the MCSE cert in the Cloud/Azure area, first I read online that is about 7 exams for MCSE but looking at the Microsoft Certifications website looks like is only 3-4 exams. Also I read somewhere that in order to get the MCSA I need to have the MTA but now reading at Microsoft certification website looks like not because says "Possess introductory IT skills through existing knowledge or optional MTA Certification" . I been working in the industry for about 10 years and also posses the CompTia A+, Network+ and Security+, so I guess I dont need the MTA?


I also read somewhere that having A+ and Net+ helps with the credits, but help for the credits towards MCSA or MCSE? how that works?


Im trying to define the path of exams/study I have to take and im just trying to avoid lost time or take exams I dont need.


I appreciate your help and clarification, thanks in advance.
