My Learning Track - Need Advice

I'm trying to figure out which learning track I should take:

a) Just take the standard MCSE than MCSE:Security

b) I go for MCSA: Security to MCSE: Security

I guess my question is you get one or the other, right?

I was studying design (70-297) which looks like it only pertains to the MCSE and does not do anything for me on MCSE: Security.

So considering that I'm going to finish my Microsoft exams before moving onto CompTia Security+ I see that I would have the MCSA 2003...would this remain until I took the Sec+ then it would be superseded by MCSA:Security?

Then would the same apply to MCSE...then that gets superseded by MCSE: Security....in which case it would be moot to study further for 70-297 and my time was wasted.

And then, what if I decided to try my hand at messaging....Would I only have one or the other MCSE?

Would I have MCSE, MCSE: Security and MCSE: Messaging?

Bah, I'm so confused...I hope this makes sense and I appreciate all input.

    Yes you would have all three and MCSA, MCSA Security, and MCSA Messaging. Just because you obtain one, you do not lose the other.

    right now you have 270 and 291. After taking 290, you have a choice, you can take an elective exam and complete the MCSA or you can keep moving towards the MCSE by taking 293 and 294. If you want a higher level cert sooner, take the elective. If you want to take advantage of some overlap in topics, take 293. If you want to take a break from MS exams, take Sec+. If you want to take something else, take something else.

    Awesome, thank you very much. I'll probably do 70-290 followed by 70-299 for in MCSA. Than get started with 70-293+70-394
