    I currently hold the MCSE 2000. I have considered pursuing the MCSE
    2000 Security. I just learned that in addition to the MCSE 2003
    certification there is also the MCSE 2003 Security. If I elect to use
    the 70-292 and 70-296 tests to upgrade to 2003 from 2000, do I forfeit
    the ability to have the MCSE 2003 Security? Can I use the upgrade
    path to achieve MCSE 2003 and then go on to take 70-298, 70-299 and
    Security+ and have both MCSE 2003 and MCSE 2003 Security?

    I am sure others in this forum have thought about this. I'd
    appreciate your opinions and personal choices. Anyone pursuing this
    now? I have done searches to find this info but haven't chosen the
    right words if similar posts exist. Thanks!

    an MCSE on Windows 2000 credential may take Exam 70-296 in place of Exams
    70-293 and 70-294.

    I had seen the link but hadn't read the footnote - my bad. Sorry.
    Since I needed to have 70-210 to get MCSE 2000 that handles the Client
    OS requirement. 70-292 and 70-296 would handle the Networking System
    requirements. I would then just need to pursue the Security
    Specialization requirements. Thanks for the clarification.

    Has anyone done this and what are their opinions?

    You Mushu,we still have to qualify for the W2k3 Security
    specialization even though we are W2k Security
    specialization qualified by taking the 298 & 299 as we
    only get "double credit" for the 227.
    I dont' mind being dual security certified as becoming a
    massive "Cert Monsta" is Fun!!
