Upgrade path: MCSA2000:Sec -> MCSA2003 -> MCSE2003:Sec ?

Discussion in 'MCSE' started by =?Utf-8?B?QW1hbiBCLg==?=, Sep 7, 2005.

  1. Hi everyone,

    I'm getting a bit confused about upgrading options.

    Say, I have MCSA2000:Security (210-215-218-214-Security+)
    Ultimate goal is to get MCSE2003:Security

    Now, from what I understood, I cannot get MCSE2000:Security upgraded to
    MCSE2003:Secuirty.
    So the path of MCSA2000:Sec -> MCSE2000:Sec -> MCSE2003:Sec
    doesn't work, right?

    But then I can upgrade MCSA2000:Security to MCSA2003:plain (btw, there is no
    MCSA2003:Security, is there?)
    Can I then go for MCSE2003:Security with my _upgraded_ MCSA2003? Plus use
    Security+ at the very end to get :Security spec?

    If anyone could clarify that, it would be greatly appreciated

    If it isn't clear on the MS web site, you might be better off to contact
    Michael C Phelp at microsoft about it:

    from the bottom of
    http://www.microsoft.com/learning/mcp/mcsa/security/windowsserver2003.asp

    and

    http://www.microsoft.com/learning/mcp/mcse/security/windowsserver2003.asp

    "2 Candidates who hold MCSA or MCSE on Windows 2000 credentials may take
    Exam 70-292 in place of Exams 70-290 and 70-291. In addition, candidates
    who hold an MCSE on Windows 2000 credential may take Exam 70-296 in place
    of Exams 70-293 and 70-294. "

    so for the MCSA 2003:Sec you would then need 70-299 and if you haven't
    taken it the ISA or Sec+ exam after taking the 70-292 exam. You could
    then theoretically finish the MCSE 2000 and write both the 70-296 exam
    and the 70-298 exam giving you MCSE on 2000 and 2003, MCSA on 2000 (which
    you have) and 2003, MCSA:Sec on 2000 (which you have) and 2003 and
    MCSE:Sec on 2003 (only).

    spend a bit of time in www.microsoft.com/learning and most of this pops
    up. you could also have a look at the certification planner in the MCP
    private web site.

    (and yes there is an MCSA:Sec 2003)

    It's really been bugging you that you've been below Ben and The Rev on the
    League tables, hasn't it.
