2003 Certification Question
I was thinking about starting to study for some Windows 2003/ Windows XP certs. Should I be concerned with MS retiring any of these certs soon? Any advice would be great.
They only retired the 2000 exams recently; you should have at least a couple of years.
Go for it! Most businesses will stick with 2003 for a while- especially in the current state of our economy. I don't see many upgrading to 2008 soon... although I really like how they divided up the email and AD.

Go for 2003, then later update. They're still in demand, plus the MCSE does not expire. I believe by the time MCITP:EA overcomes it in terms of job postings, having an MCSE will show you're a veteran.
