    I've just passed my 6th exam for my MCSE 2000 certification. And am looking
    at which design exam to take for my 7th and final exam. I eventually want to
    gain certification in 2000 & 2003 security (after taking 70-227 and
    upgrading), so I have the choice of either 70-220 which will also count
    towards 2000 security, or 70-298 for 2003 security.
    Which do people think is more useful? Should I now be looking at just going
    for 2003 security, bearing in mind that 2000 end of life is only a few years
    away? Or should I try and gain both? I'm guessing that the exams are very
    similar in content anyway.
    Its a shame that you can't upgrade from 2000 security to 2003 security just
    by taking the 2 standard upgrade exams, plus maybe 299. Doing the whole lot
    means taking 6 more exams.
    Also does anyone know if there will be an exam for ISA 2004? And if so would
    it count towards 2000 or 2003 security?

    Which one will benefit your employer/prospective employer? Which interests
    you the most? Would you rather work with the new toys, or play with the
    older ones? Choices...

    When you put it like that it does make the choice pretty clear.
    Its just a pain that I brought a load of the study guide books for 2000
    security back when I started my MCSE path. Now I'll probably never read them
    in place of buying new ones for 2003.

    ISA 2004 exam has just finished beta and from what I've read the new exam
    will be 70-350, but no release date as yet.

    always the case. that dang SQL 6.5 book hasn't had much use for just about
    5 years. Can't bring myself to toss it though.
