Hi guys im in a dilema,
Well i cant decide if i want to go and do the mcsa 2000 and take the 70-215,70-218 then become certified then take the 292 when im ready and
upgrade the cert to 2003. or just go with the 2003 and take the 70-290,70-291 im seriously confused i want to take the easiest one. what would u recommend as the easiest path to acheive the mcsa. From what i hear the newest one is harder than the older certs icon_cool.gif

    If you are starting with Microsoft, i.o.w. if you don't have experience with administering Windows 2000 servers/networks, 'and' there's not a direct opportunity to get a job position for which you need to 2000, I recommend going for 2003. But if you do have a lot of experience with 2000, you might as well go for that one first, but keep in mind that the upgrade exam is even harder than the individual 2003 exams.

    and the 70-296, the other required upgrade exam for MCSE's on Windows 2000.

    I have far more experience with Win2K so I also will go for the MCSA/MCSE 2000 then upgrade. Besides where I work we have only one 2003 server but we have several 2000 servers and have no intentions of upgrading anytime soon.

    yeah i think i have decided im going to go with the mcsa 2000, then upgrade to 2003 when it becomes more popular around smaller companies, it will also get me 2 mcsa's "2000"/"2003" cert's so i can have 2 certs instead of one. thanks guy's i will let u know how i get on on my route to mcsa 2000/2003. :P icon_cool.gif

    Thats the route i'm taking since I have more 2000 experience. Every little bit helps. Several companies want the dual certs, especially when there will be a migration to 2003.
