As an MCSA in Windows Server 2003, what do I need to become an MCSE?
I am currently an MCSA in Windows 2000. I have successfully completed exams 70-210, 70-215, 70-218, 70-217 and have both A+ and Net+ certifications. My question is: If I take the MCSA Windows Server 2003 upgrade test to update my MCSA in Win2k to MCSA in Windows Server 2003, what test will I need to take to get my MCSE in Win2k?
You'll need thre more exams to finish your MCSE, because by taking 70-210, you've met the client OS core requirement.
- You must still take 70-216 to meet the core networking system requirements; you already have 70-215 and 70-217 to finish out that requirement
- A designing exam to meet the core design requirement will be needed: 70-219, 70-220, 70-221 and 70-226 are all acceptable; I recommend either 70-219 or 70-221 depending on your job focus
- You will also need to complete one more elective exam (70-218 counts as one, but you still need another).
See the MCSE requirements page
for the details.
