    Since you are already doing MCSA 2000, it might actually be logical to do MCSE 2003. It depends a lot on the schedule you've set for yourself, if you are planning on becoming MCSE this year, I would go for 2000. You'll have more chance finding a job with 2000 since most companies won't upgrade their 2000 to 2003 for a long while. You can gain some experience in the field for 1 or two year, and then take the 2 required upgrade exams (which would automatically also update your MCSA 2000 to 2003) to become MCSE on 2003, and then you have more chance of actually finding a job where you'll use 2003, when companies eventually upgrade for example. You won't be too late with 2003 and still be able to get a job and get some experience with 2000 to really kick some butt when 2003 is the OS.

    Just my 2 cents... icon_wink.gif

    Does anyone have any input on this subject now? I'm starting my MCSA (and eventually MCSE) track very soon. I passed A+ last month, and I'm going to be taking Net+ next week. So my elective will be out of the way.

    I'm thinking I'll probably go 2003, but I'm not 100% sure yet. I think either way I'm going to take 70-270 (XP) because it will count for both the 2000 and 2003 track.

    Does anyone think that we're to the point where Server 2003 is becoming widely accepted?

    I have decided to follow the 2003 MCSA route as at my company we now install 2003 when building a new server. We will be upgrading our Active Directory to 2003 in the next couple of months.

    I think there is still more 2000 out there, and I don't think that many people will move from 2000 to 2003 (although we are!), but most new servers will now be built with 2003.

    This is only my opinion/experience though .....
