Sorry little confused here,

If I did the security + for my MCSA elective, would it not count towards the elective on a MCSE as well?

In turn if i did the right 7 exams for MCSE could I obtain the MCSA as well? without taking extras?

    For either, Sec+ could be used as an elective. If you wanted both certs, You would need to take exams : 210 or 270, that gives you MCP. 215 is next for the server side for both. Now it gets different a bit. For MCSA you would need 218, 214, and the Security+. For MCSE, you would need 216, 217, 220, and also 214 and Security+. So if you took and passed 210/270, 214, 215, 216, 217, 218, 220 and Sec+, you would hold both MCSA/MCSE+Security. In lieu of Sec+ you could also take exam 227. So I guess the answer is 8 exams, because of the need for 218 on the MCSA track.

    true, he may need to take 290,291,293, and 294 if he is going for server 2003 or the exams you listed for server 2000
