    I am halfway through working towards my first MCP 70-270, do people think I
    should continue with this or should I do the MCTS 70-260 instead, and work
    towards server 2008 instead of server 2003 MCSE? This is a long term plan, as
    I am currently working full-time and trying to complete this in my own time.

    What are you most experienced with. Certification is to prove
    experience. And I think you mean 70-620.

    Hi Mark,

    There will not be an MCSE on Windows Server 2008. The 'Senior
    Certifications' will be more pigeon-holed, and there will not be a single
    senior cert to really prove yourself. If you are working on 2003, get the
    MCSE on that platform.

    After you finish the 70-260, you'll be sitting around with your dick
    in your hand wondering what you where thinking, since you aren't any
    steps closer to the MCSE 2003. 70-270 is a joke anyway, if you use
    windows XP on a regular basis and aren't an idiot, you should be able
    to pass it with no trouble. If you use Linux, chances are you are
    nerd enough to pass 70-270 with no problem, and if you use a Mac, the
    you should thinking about going into the garbage collection business
    instead of network support.
