    Hi,

    I have an MCSA and MCSE on Windows 2003 and I want to get the security
    specialisation.
    I don't see any point in taking the ISA 2000 exam as ISA 2004 has replaced
    it, but on the MS website, ISA 2000 is listed as necessary for MCSE+S.

    I guess my question is, will the 70-350 replace the ISA 2000 exam soon as
    part of the MCSE +S?

    Answers most appreciated

  4. According to the link for the 70-350 exam it does count toward the security
    specialization. You do not have to take an ISA exam however as the Comptia
    Security+ exam will also count toward it as long as you also take 70-299 and
    70-298 which is what I did as there was no study guide out for ISA 2004 when
    I was obtaining my MCSE Security for Windows 2003. The link below explains
    more though MS has not updated their website for the MCSE Security
    certification which they should do soon to end the confusion and I would
    certainly verify such with MS before you start the studying to make sure
    exactly what the requirements currently are using the second link

    My understanding was that the current MCSE/MCSA certs were 'feature
    complete' and there are to be no further changes, thus the answer would
    appear to be no and the MCSE+S will not be changing.

    AIUI, the current IT Pro certs stay in place as is, to be gradually
    replaced/sucerceded by the new set of certs announced in early July.

    Thanks Rowdy,

    As i mentioned in my original post I already hold my MCSE & MCSA on Windows
    2003, I want the +S specialisation so need to know if Microsoft are intending
    on allowing the 70-350 to count towards it. At the moment there is no
    information on their website about this,
