MCSE in Windows 2003: Security road from here

Hi.

Yesterday I passed 70-292 exam so, as I had passed before 70-210, 70-215,
70-216 and 70, 218, I'm now MCSA in Windows 2000 and in Windows 2003.

My objective is the MCSE in Windows 2003 with speciality in Security. So,
being MCSA in Windows 2003, what now? How much to go? 2, 3 more? Which ones
could they be? How many “core” and how many “elective”?

The next exam I want to sit for is CompTIA Security+. In my opinion, this
exam has its own importance, apart from the possibility of being used as
requisite to MCSE, so passing it would give me at the same time “a piece of
the MCSE” and a 3rd party recognized certification.

Speaking about Security+…what exact impact does this exam have in the “path”
I need to accomplish my objective? Is it consider “elective”?

Honestly, I tried to understand the CertPlanner, but I just don’t get how to
figure out easily the options I have to achieve my goal.

Thanks!!!

You can see the total requirements here...
http://www.microsoft.com/learning/mc...erver2003.mspx

70-292 gave you credit for 70-290 and 70-291 which are 2 of the 4 networking
system core exams.
You'll need the remaining two, 70-293 and 70-294

You have 70-210 which will suffice for the client OS exam.

You'll need the core design exam 70-298.

At this point, you will have MCSE: 2003

You'll then need two additional core security elements out of the
following... 70-299, 70-227, 70-350, Comptia Security+

Good luck to you.

Hi, thanks so much for your reply.

I was wondering...can I take 70-296 (before 03/31, of course because MS is
retiring it) and avoid to take individually 70-293 and 70-294?

Exam 70-296 name states “…for an MCSE Certified on Windows 2000” and I’m
not. I got my MCSA 2000 and MCSA 2003. I’m not MCSE on 2000.

If I go to Prometric and register for 70-296…will it allow me? Does
Prometric have anyway to check if I’m or I’m not an MCSE on 2000 yet when I
register for 70-296?
If it does allow me and I pass it…will it be valid?

Thanks!!!

You cannot use 70-296 to avoid 70-293 and 70-294 unless you hold MCSE 2000
period. Since you are not MCSE 2000, 70-296 will not apply to you. I do
not know if Prometric is smart enough to figure that out, but it won't
matter. 70-296 will not buy you anything even if you pass it, unless hold
MCSE 2000 on or before March 31, 2008. If you want to get to MCSE 2003, you
must take 70-293 and 70-294.

Ok, ok, you're right. It was just an idea!!

What do you think of the path I’m planning to follow towards my MCSE 2003 –
Security?

01) System Core remaining 1: 70-293 - Planning and Maintaining a Windows
Server 2003 Network Infrastructure

02) System Core remaining 2: 70-294 - Planning, Implementing, and
Maintaining a Windows Server 2003 Active Directory Infrastructure

03) Desing remaining: 70-298 - Designing Security for a Microsoft Windows
Server 2003 Network

04) Comptia Security+


With these 4 exams do I get my MCSE 2003 – Security? Or there is still one
more missing?

I’m in doubt because in the page with the requirements states “Security
specialization (three exams required)".

Thanks a lot!

Carlos Tapia.

After completing your first three steps, you will have MCSE 2003. To
continue on with the security specialization, you will need two additional
elements (with your 70-298, that makes three). Comptia Security+ is one of
those elements. You will also need one additional security element. You
can choose from 70-299, 70-227, or 70-350. (Note, 70-227 retires 03/31/08
so if you want to use that, you need to complete that test before 03/31/0.
You can see the full requirements here...

Good luck to you.

I am MCSA & MCSE on Windows Server 2003. I want to download my Certificate
from the MCP Secure Site. But it says I must have at least 1 Specialization
in order to do that. I will like to do that by writing the least number of
exams. Can anyone tell me what to do to become MCITP or MCP with 1 specialty?
