MCSA, 9-12 months down

any reasonable predictions on the future of this certification once the new generation of MS certs become in gear? Will they have a MCSA on Sever 2007?

I'm going to take my Network+ this month, and then I want to start learning Win2k3 environment.

I have a home lab with Win2k3 server standard, win2k server, 3 winxp pro clients, ubuntu linux client, win2k pro client.

I am thinking about this book:

I plan to take 291 first in Christmas, and then 290 couple of month later, and then 270 by next summer. Will I have enough time to finish all my exams? Is this plan too strenched out?

Jack of all trades, master of none

    Well it won't be MCSE or MCSA on 2007, but I bet there will be something similar and there will be an upgrade path if you are a current MCSA or E. If it's following the line of the new generation certs for SQL it would be Technology Specialist on Server 2007 or something simliar.
    IT guy since 12/00

    Recent: 11/2019 - RHCSA (RHEL 7); 2/2019 - Updated VCP to 6.5 (just a few days before VMware discontinued the re-cert policy...)
    Working on: RHCE/Ansible
    Future: Probably continued Red Hat Immersion, Possibly VCAP Design, or maybe a completely different path. Depends on job demands...

    If you allready have your MCDST i would sit 270 now, you should breeze through with out any problems.

    If possible i would go for the MS Press training kit, and as many practice exams as possible (training kit comes with some)

    The lab might be best with 2 2k3 servers (maybe a 3rd for 291)

    It seems a good amount of time just give yourself plenty of time for 291..
