MCSE 2003 to MCSA 2003

When I complete my MCSE 2003. What exams do I need to get a MCSA 2003. Do I need to take all 4 cores plus an elective? If I'm a MCSE 2003, is there an upgrade path to MCSA 2003?

    1. Are u for real.............?

    2. >>>There an upgrade path from MCSA 2000 or MCSE 2000

    3. if u have an MCSE 2003 or soon to be MCSE 2003, You don't need MCSA 2003

    He has a legitimate reason to ask this. Windows 2000 MCSEs could bypass MCSA 2000. If you look at Microsoft's site, there are a ton more MCSEs than there are MCSAs. The certification path for MCSE 2003 is different as all MCSEs will also be MCSAs, especially in your case as MCSE 2000 is an elective for MCSA.

    Royal...i think you missed it. I don't quite understand what you are talking about but, i agree with elover_jm. He was looking for a backwards path from MCSE2003 to MCSA2003(I'm no rocket scientist here but the required courses for MCSA are covered in the MCSE.)

    Actually, I think you missed my point.

    An MCSE in 2000 CAN bypass MCSA in 2000
    An MCSE in 2003 CANNOT bypass MCSA in 2003

    Since he is an MCSE in 2000, he probably has the idea in mind the MCSE in 2003 is the same way, hence his questioning.

    In fact, it's going to work similarly in 2008 to how it did in MCSE 2000. You don't have to get the MCITP: Server Administrator (MCSA focused) if you want to get MCITP: Enterprise Administrator (MCSE focused).

    I wonder is there is a type on his orginal post and he is referring to the MCSE 2000 and not the MCSE 2003.

    I believe Royal is basing his answer on the original poster's profile, but I could be mistaken. Anyways, I hope his question has been answered.
