I just successfully completed an excellent MCSE boot camp...still hungry tho'. Just what *IS* the status of certs & exams for XP/.NET? The administrator side .NET Server exams (70-275, 70-276, 70-277, 70-278 and so forth) must wait until .NET Server is released before they become available. Given your recent track record -- especially if you're a Win2000 MCSE by now -- you may get invited to take some beta exams for the next release....
Otherwise, you'll probably have to wait 30 days or so after .NET Server is released to take any of these new exams. The latest information on the release date is early 2003, so it'll probably be January/February 2003 before you can scratch that itch!
