Exam options ?

Discussion in 'MCSE' started by Richard Goulding, Apr 17, 2007.

  1. I have today, passed 70-219 W2000 AD Infrastucture Admin. Over the last few
    months I have passed 70-215, 70-210, 70-218, 70-216, 70-229, 70-228. This
    give me MCSA 2000 and a MCDBA 2000.

    I am now looking at doing a design exam (to complete the MCSE) but haven't a
    clue which one to do. I want to maximise my certs so I am leaning towards
    70-220 (Designing W2000 Security) because it will be useful for the
    MCSA\MCSE 2000 Security accreditation. My next step (after the design exam)
    however, is to upgrade the MCSA/MCSE to 2003.

    Can anyone tell me if I upgrade to MCSE 2003 will a MCSE 2000 Security
    accreditation be upgraded to. Also if I finish the MCSE with 70-220, then
    upgrade, can I just do the one exam to make it a MCSE 2000 Security ?

    I can't find this info on the MS Website.

    Thanks

  2. You must take 298 for the MCSE Security Designator for Server 2003. 220 will
    not transfer.

    Thanks for the info.

    I checked this on the Cert Planner and you are correct (Good job I asked). I
    did noticed that I can do the 298 to complete the MCSE 2000. So I guess it
    is probably the best choice. The only concerns I have is that all my work
    and certs have been on W2000 and do a 2003 design cert seems odd.

    Is 298 very similar to 220 (hence why it can be used as a core for MCSE
    2000) ?

    Should I do the MCSA 2003 upgrade (70-292) first to get a feel for W2003 or
    just finish the MCSE 2000 with 298 (I'm keen to complete it) ?

    Any advice is appreciated.

    Many thanks,

    Richard

  4. They are both design exams and in that sense they are basicly the same. I'd
    go for 298, this way you wouldn't have to take 220 and 298
