Here is the Q&A on the Longhorn Certification webcast, morning edition. (MCP
Live Meeting: Your Next Step in Windows Server Certifications - Worldwide
(Session 1))
Undoubtedly it will answer some of the questions people will be posting here
(or have posted).
I may have missed a couple of questions because I joined the webcast late.
If anyone can post the evening edition (5pm PDT) Q&A, or have the earlier
questions [if any], I would appreciate it.

One interesting announcement on the webcast was the announcement that the
Windows 2000 Server exams will all retire on March 30, 2008. This includes
exams 70-210, 214 to 223, 226, 232, 244, 292, and 296. If you don't upgrade
your 2000 certification to 2003 by next March, you have to start over with
the 2003 exams.

Another announcement was that the Longhorn Beta exams will first be offered
at TechEd in Orlando, after which, only if they need more beta takers, will
it be offered to the public.

Also listed were the latest cert numbers: MCSE2003: 68,668, MCSA2003:
105,178; MCSE2000: 236,736; MCSA2000: 144,068.

Enjoy:

Question: Well I thought once I compelte 70-292 with a MCSE in 2000 makes me
an MCSA in 2003 which would qualify for the upgrade me to Longhorn. Please
correct me if I am wrong .
Answer: IF you are MCSE 2000, you need 292 AND 296 to earn MCSE 2003. If you
are MCSE and take only 292, you will not earn anything. MCSA 2000 can take
292 to upgrade to 2003. Does that help?
Question: Incorrect, If you are MCSE 2003 and take 70-292, you earn MCSA
2003 credential.
Answer: rob, thanks.
Question: "sorry my english" My name is Jose armando from Colombia, I have
MCP in XP but thinking of moving to 2003 in this year. i can obtain certified
in 2003 only present and pass 70-290 and 70-291 exam ?
