MCSA 2003 or MCSE 2000 first?

    I'm a 70-216 exam away from an MCSA 2000. My goal is MCSA 2003 as well as
    MCSE 2003. Should the order in which this is done be:

    MCSA 2000> MCSA 2003 upgrade> MCSE 2000> MCSE 2003 upgrade

    or

    MCSA 2000> MCSE 2000> MCSA 2003 upgrade> MCSE 2003 upgrade

    My concern is that if I do the MCSA 2003 upgrade right after the MCSA 2000,
    it will only cause confusion of trying to separate what functionality is in
    2000 or 2003 when I go for the MCSE 2000. Is this a valid concern or is the
    order not a big deal?

    Thanks,

    Paul

    You could also do this:

    MCSA 2000 > MCSA 2003 > MCSE 2003

    As far as I know, once you have an MCSA in 2003, you just need to
    take the remaining 4 exams for the MCSE; that is 2 core, 1 design,
    and 1 elective.

    If I understand you correctly, are you suggesting to do the MCSA upgrade
    (70-292) and then just do the remaining MCSE 2003 exam requirements? I want
    to have solid knowledge of both 2000 and 2003. If I went that route wouldn't
    I be missing some core 2000 stuff, like 70-217, or does the 2003 material
    cover both 2000 foundation as well as the new 2003 functionality?
