As a Win2k MCSE, I only need two upgrade exams to get my 2003 cert, right?

I currently hold an MCSE in Windows 2000. I was under the impression that when Exchange 5.5 retires I will lose...

that cert. But after reading through the Microsoft site, I believe that is not the case. I took the 240 exam and the security exam to get my cert. Am I correct in assuming that I need only the two upgrade exams to get my 2003 cert and that the Exchange exam is not necessary? Yes, you are correct unless something else changes between now and when you complete those upgrade exams. Microsoft can (and all too often will) change the rules along the way; barring such a change, however, you need only 70-292 and 70-296 (when they become available later this year, probably in September or October) to upgrade your MCSE from 2000 to 2003 status.
