    Is it permitted/possible to use the overlap between the
    core and elective requirements for the MCSE and MCDBA
    certifications to obtain both simultaneously; i.e., use
    the SQL 2000 core exams as the 2 electives for the MCSE
    after passing the rest of the MCSE track. By doing this
    all of the core and elective requirements are met for both
    certs - I was just wondering if Microsoft has put some
    kind of restriction on using one passed exam and applying
    that same passed exam to obtain another cert.

  3. Actually, yes you can do that. They intentionally designed the overlap.

    My reply was no microsoft did not put any restriction on that and yes he can
    do that.

  5. No, this can be done, but the overlap allows for it. See below.

    It's hard to tell from these posts - but everybody agrees AFAICT... :->

    The MS certification web site contains information about how overlaps are
    permitted.

    HTH,

    Yes, it is possible to do the 2 SQL server exams as
    electives for your MCSE and come away with the MCDBA
    certification aswell.

    I know, because I did it.
