  2. Well Melissa, It would seem to me from your signature file that the one exam
    you took is 70-215, but if I am wrong please let me know. I will base my
    advice on that assumption and if I am wrong then please let me know.

    The next step up from MCP (on the IT Pro track) is MCSA. However to get
    your MCSA on Windows 2000 you need to take three more exams, and then to
    upgrade to MCSA on Windows Server 2003 is either one upgrade exam (not fun)
    or three more exams. However if we can assume for a minute that MCSA on
    Windows 2003 is more pertinent in today's world than 2000 then you can skip a
    step and take the four exams for MCSA 2003 right away, bypassing the 2000
    cert.

    If you choose to do that I believe you only need to take 70-270 (Windows
    XP), 70-290 (Server 2003), 70-291 (Infrastructure (GASP but not as hard as
    Infrastructure on 2000)), and one elective.

    I know it sounds like a lot but if you find a good study group in your area
    it should be doable within a few months.

    Good luck and let us know how you do!
