Re: MCSA path

Discussion in 'MCDST' started by Michael D. Alligood, Jan 31, 2007.

  1. Is there any incentives from your company if you successfully negotiate
    your MCSA 2000 certification? Otherwise, Jonathan might have a point
    here. You could always get your MCSA in 2003 and "sell" your company on
    an upgrade knowing the benefits of running a Windows 2003 network.

  2. we may be getting a 2003 server soon actually ... do the concepts pretty
    much spillover into 2000 to where it would teach me a lot about the 2000
    server so i could apply my knowledge there? I am guessing it probably would
    but of course there would be lots of discrepancies...

    I have mentioned before that having a certification on multiple platforms is
    never a bad thing. If you do get your MCSA on 2000 you can then study and
    take one more exam for your MCSA on 2003... 70-292 was a bit of a bear but I
    did manage to pass it (barely!). I say go for 2000 because it is what you
    know best, then worry about 2003.

  5. Well duh! :) Don't you keep up with everything in the I.T. field?!?
    Yeah the 292 test covers a lot of material.
