MCSA done, now on to MCSE

  1. I should done this a long time ago, but hey. I have completed 70-210,
    70-215, 70-218 and A+ and Net+ to get my MCSA 2000. Now I will be getting
    70-292 to upgrade to get MCSA 2003. However since a number of 2000 exams are
    getting expired I am wondering if is better to get MCSE 2000 before March '08
    or take more time and get MCSE 2003

    Do you currently have MCSE 2000 skills and do you see yourself needing MCSE
    2000 certification in the future? That would be the only logical reason to
    pursue MCSE 2000 if you are afraid of the exams retiring in March. Do you
    really think you will be designing and implementing network infrastructure
    based on 2000 in the future?

    The upgrade exams 70-292 and 70-296 are also retiring at the same time. You
    will still be able to "upgrade" to MCSA 2003 by taking 70-290 and 70-291
    instead of 70-292, and MCSE 2003 by taking 70-293 and 70-294 instead of
    70-296 (given of course that you obtain MCSE 2000).

    A lot of shops still have 2000 boxes as member servers, so the MCSA 2000
    will probably serve you well in addition to the 2003 path. Your original
    path to upgrade to MCSA 2003 certainly sounds reasonable to me, then move
    forward to MCSE 2003. (Note: your MCSA 2000 will serve as the elective for
    MCSE 2003, so you will only need 3 additional tests once you have MCSA
    2003).
