    Hi All,

    I am a Windows NT 4.0 MCSE. I landed a job that did not required my skills
    for a while and now I want to get back and start to look for a new job. I
    still handle a lot of tasks in Server 2003/2008, Exchange 2003/2007 and some
    I want to recertify but things look a little more confusing now.
    Should I just go for the MCITP:Enterprise with Exchange 2007 or the MCSE?

    Thanks for your help

  2. That really depends on where your expertise lies, Juan, and what sort of
    recognition you're interested in.

    If you're more experienced with Exchange 2007, or you never wish to work
    with Exchange 2003 again, then the MCSE would seem to be somewhat useless
    and you probably want to focus on the Exchange 2007 examinations and

    On the other hand, if you're an expert in Exchange 2003, and you still do a
    lot of work and/or plan to continue to do a lot of work with Exchange 2003,
    then it seems having the certification recognizing your expertise on *that*
    product would make the most sense.

  3. It depends on what you current job requirements are and what you personally
    want to do. But I always say why not both. This will make you the most
