Discussion in 'MCSE' started by Claude Lachapelle, Mar 19, 2008.

  1. Hi!

    Since we are really near the end of the month (March 2008) and those exams
    are to expire, since I now passed the 70-292, and next week I'm trying
    70-296, If I fail, which exams will be required to get my MCSE 2000 upgraded
    to 2003? I heard that each of 70-292 & 70-296 are related to 2 exams in the
    MCSE 2003 core exams, but which one (I assume the two last one for 70-296)?

    NOTE: Please don't answer if this is two blame me that's my fault if I'm
    doing them too lately... OR I DIDN'T FIND the correct Microsoft document.

  2. I found some posts tolding that is the 70-293 & 70-294... do Microsoft have
    document confirming this.

  3. That is correct. You can take 293 and 294 to do the upgrade instead of 296.

    As such (had you not passed 292) you could have taken 290 and 291 instead of

  4. Hi,
    You DID register for you "second shot" did you not? In that case you have a
    free second exam and you can take that as late as june 2008.
    I'm going to do my 292 and 296 next week as well. At first I didn't see the
    use of the 2003 upgrade but.... the 2008 upgrade can only be done from the
    2003 cert. So.... ;-)

  5. Since those exams are expiring end of March 2008. I think even if we have a
    second shot voucher, that will be impossible to schedule them a second time

  6. Hi,

    Huh? I was given to understand second shot vouchers were viable til the end
    of june?

  8. Hi,
    Grrr, great of them not to tell me. Oh, well, in all those years I have been
    taking CNE and MCSE exams I have not failes one yet so I just have to make
    sure I don't fail this time.
    And... I might still have time if I fail one, my 292 is on wednesday, my 296
    on friday. March 31st is the next monday. ;-)

  10. Hi,
    Great of the people who told me the Second shot program had been extended to
    june not to tell me it did NOT include the chance to take the exams during
    that extention That pretty much makes the entire extention of the second
    shot program useless. So I don't get it but, so be it.

    Hmm I'm still at CNE, MSCE2000. Was almost CNI and equivalent for MS when
    the training economy collapsed and several bussineses when belly up in 2001.

    Not for people taking other Microsoft exams though. The second shot voucher
    offer is valid for all Microsoft exams....not just 70-292 and 70-296.

  12. Passed with 700! No needs to take 70-293 & 70-294 anymore, youhou!

    Now, I'm looking for 70-649 upgrade exam... to earn these MCTS certifications:

    MCTS: Windows Server 2008 Active Directory Configuration
    MCTS: Windows Server 2008 Network Infrastructure Configuration
