    I'm an MCSE on Windows 2000 and want to upgrade to 2003. I missed the
    opportunity to upgrade with the 2 upgrade exams. What's the best way to do
    this as the certification planner is a bit confusing. I did the following
    exams on 2000.

    70-210 - Installing, Configuring, and Administering Microsoft® Windows® 2000
    Professional
    70-215 - Installing, Configuring, and Administering Microsoft® Windows® 2000
    Server
    70-216 - Implementing and Administering a Microsoft® Windows® 2000 Network
    Infrastructure
    70-218 - Managing a Windows 2000 Network Environment
    70-217 - Implementing and Administering a Microsoft® Windows® 2000 Directory
    Services Infrastructure
    70-220 - Designing Security for a Microsoft® Windows® 2000 Network
    70-227 - Installing, Configuring, and Administering Microsoft® Internet
    Security and Acceleration (ISA) Server 2000, Enterprise Edition

  2. You would need Exams 70-290, 70-291, and 70-293. I think that is it.

  3. I think he's going to need a bit more, Mitch. There are no upgrade exams
    available from MCSE2000 to MCSE2003, and only two exams on the list provided
    are usable -- the 70-210, which can be used to satisfy the Client OS
    requirement, and the 70-227, which can be used to satisfy the Elective
    requirement.

    That leaves four core exams and a design exam:
    70-290, 70-291, 70-293, 70-294, and one of 70-297 or 70-298

    The MCSA2003 only requires 70-290 and 70-291.

  4. Wow you are right... I misread that he was MCSA, not MCSE. For MCSE he
    would need 70-294 plus a Design Elective (297 or 298) as you stated.

    Thanks! :)
