Step 5: Digging into server and admin requirements

Whether or not you choose to earn Security+, your next step must be to tackle Windows server-related exams, along with the requirements related to managing networks and other elements of the IT infrastructure. For MCSAs, it means either 70-290

and 70-291 on Windows Server 2003, or 70-215 and 70-218 on Windows 2000 Server. Conventional wisdom says it is slightly more helpful to take these exams in consecutive order than it is to reverse that order. For MCSEs, the sequences are slightly longer and more demanding: 70-290, 70-291, 70-293 and 70-294 for Windows Server 2003; and 70-215, 70-216 and 70-217 for Windows 2000. Here, again, plan to tackle them in numerical order.
