    Hi everyone,

    I'm at the very beginning now. I've passed 70-210 and now looking towards
    MCSA. And I'm not sure which one should work on - 2000 or 2003.

    IMHO:

    MCSA 2000
    Pros
    + more familiar with
    + there're more businesses using 2000 right now
    + after upgrading can have both 2000 and 2003 status
    + chances are that MCSA 2000 will be good enough to get a job in a company
    with 2003 environment
    Cons
    - eventually will be replaced by 2003
    - more exams to pass and more expensive and time-consuming


    MCSA2003
    Pros
    + newer technology
    + MCSA2003 can also get a job where requirement is MCSA2000 (or am I wrong?)
    + less time- and effort-consuming than uprading from 2000
    Cons
    - less experience than with 2000
    - as I said, right now 2000 is more demanded (I think)


    Now, gentlemen, what are your thoughts about it and what would you recommend
    me?

    With best regards,
    Aman
