Cert Confusion

Ok i have MCSA 2000, 70-219, 70-290. I am currently studying for 70-291. This once passed will give me MCSA2K3? I think, I also like the study material for 70-294 but will this lead (with another cert) to an MCSE?

    I think so, because you have A+ and Network+ which combined count as an MCSA elective. But Comp Tia needs to send that record to Microsoft.

    Also, because you are Windows 2000 MCSA, I assume you passed 70-210? And either 70-210 or 70-270 count.

    For MCSA 2003, you need either 70-210 or 70-270, 70-290, 70-291, and one elective (A+ and Network+ combined count as an elective).

    MCSA 2003 - Your MCSA 2000 will count as the elective for the MCSA 2003. Look towards the bottom of this page in the As an alternative to the electives that are listed in the Electives Table, these certifications or certification combinations may substitute for an MCSA section

    You can also submit your A+ and Net+, but since you already have the MCSA 2000 do not have to do that.

    MCSE 2003 - Look here http://www.microsoft.com/learning/mcp/mcse/windows2003/default.mspx

    1. Client exam - because you aleady have the MCSA 2000, you had to have either completed 210, 270 or 240 so tha client piece is covered.

    2. Core exam 290 - you said you completed this exam

    3. Core exam 291 - you said you are working on this exam

    4. Core exam 293 - I do not see this exam listed, so you would need to complete this one

    5. Core exam 294 - looks like you need this one.

    6. Design exam - 219 will count as the Design requirement. You have to follow the footnote to the bottom of the page.

    7. Elective exam - looks like your MCSA 2000 counts as the elective here too

    It looks like you are right. If you complete 291, 293, and 294 you should complete the MCSA 2003 track.

    2017 Goals: 1 of 5 courses complete, 0 of 2 exams complete
