MCSE exam question

Hey guys- I am going crazy w/ all these exams lol.

I see their are these for MCSE/MCSA-

MCSE on Windows Server 2003

MCSE on Windows 2000

Which one do you take? Or is it a preference for the user ? And should you take both Server and Windows 2000?

Confused on this- thanks guys!

    You may as well pick the more up-to-date track, the 2003.

    And here you can see the necessary exams.

    ok great thanks!

    Another question- do these exams count towards MCSA and should you get both MSCE and MCSA?

    You become an MCSA before an MCSE if you follow the path that MS says you should.

    In the case of 2003:

    270 (or 210), 290, 291 + elective = MCSA

    270 (or 210), 290, 291, 293, 294, Design Exam (297 or 29icon_cool.gif, and elective = MCSE

    I see Tek!

    So once 270 (210) 290 291 and elective are done then you just need 293 and 294 and design for MCSE?

    Thanks for the help!

    Seems that some people prefer to continue on directly to 293 and 294 right after 291... Without going for the elective for MCSA. They prefer to have the 291 content fresh in their head.

    Depends on your goals. I stopped and grabbed 284 for my MCSA... Short lived but I prefer to have an exchange credit under my belt.
    On the road to Cisco. Will I hunt it, or will it hunt me?

    Yeah I think its a good idea to go for the MCSA if you are so close then finish out the MCSE ..

    I am going for the MCP first then Network + so I can use that w/ my A+ then finish up MCSA. Long road ahead of me.
