Update my WinNT 4.0 to Win2k

I completed my MCSE Certification last year with MSExchange server 5.5. Currently, I am working on my CCNA 2.0....

After completing my CCNA, I would like to update my WinNT 4.0 to Win2k. Which are the papers required to complete Win2k?

You must pass the following exams to obtain a current MCSE for Win2k
1. 70-210 Win2k Professional
2. 70-215 Win2k Server
3. 70-216 Win2k Network Infrastructure
4. 70-217 Win2k Directory Services Infrastructure

You must also pass one of the following four exams as well
1. 70-219 Designing Win2k Active Directory
2. 70-220 Designing Win2k Security
3. 70-221 Designing Win2k Network Infrastructure
4. 70-226 Designing Highly Available Web Solutions

Finally, you must pass 2 additional valid electives as documented on the Microsoft Web site at ? http://www.microsoft.com/trainingandservices/default.asp?PageID=mcp⋐Site=cert/mcse&PageCall=nttracks&AnnMenu=mcse&PageExt=.txt#elective

That is a total of seven exams in all, unless one or both of the electives you took for your NT 4.0 MCSE remain valid; if so, you reduce the total number of exams you must take by the number of electives that remain valid. Thus, you will probably end up taking between five and seven exams to maintain your MCSE status.
