    Let me first start off by saying that I've been one of those individuals
    that did not care for certifications. Mainly because in one interveiw many
    years ago I wasn't asked back for a 2nd, and out of the 12 people, I was the
    only one that had real world hands on experience. Of course that was back
    in the days of NT 4.0 server.

    Recently I was required to obtain my MCSE so that we could sell Cisco IP
    telephony. I've been working with Microsoft for some years now, install,
    configuring, and maintaining server environment. So I just picked my tests
    from the list on which ones I felt I would do best in.

    When I took 70-218 as an elective the pre-exam survey asked when I planned
    to complete my MCSA and I picked "never". Imagine my surpise a week later
    when I received an e-mail from Microsoft that I was an MCSA.

    Needless to say, as of Friday August 8th, I am now a MCP/MCSA/MCSE. It was
    a pleasant surprise to become a MCSA without even trying for it.

    Good luck to those who work hard and have actually worked on a server!

    JTT,

    With the certifications that you took to become MCSE certified you probably
    only need to take the 70-218 test to become MCSA certified. Check
    Microsoft's website and I"m sure that is what you will find. The MCSA only
    requires 4 exams, three core exams which includes the 70-218 and then one
    elective exam. Exams that you already took to receive your MCSE counted
    toward your MCSA.
