Title: Does anyone know what they meant?
Post by: ping on December 26, 2001, 11:39:16 PM
... Quoted from the this examnotes forum main page for MCSE 2000 track..

"If the elective examinations you took for the NT4 track are among those that are RETIRING (which they ALL, 12/30/00) you will be required to REPLACE (or UPGRADE) them with TWO (2) new electives that are either not retiring or from the Windows 2000 MCSE track before 12/30/01, etc...."


Now, all the old exams had beeen retired long ago, how the heck we can redo (UPGRADE) all retired electives (e.g, TCP/IP, IIS4, Proxy 2,,,) AFTER exam 240 but BEFORE 12/30/01???

I notice that every guy in here keep asking what exam to take next (e.g, 219, 221, 222,,,) but not mention anything about how many more electives exams you MUST take AFTER 240??  Well, what about those RETIRED exams that this forum saying about? Don't we have to worry about it too? Just simply pass 240 and only one more elective from 219, 220, 221, etc.. CERTAINLY do not get us anywhere, am I right or am I wrong?? Please comments on this...

Can some kind souls here explain for me this so confusing track so I know what to take next, thanks a lot..

G' Nite, and waiting for your answer guys...

Hi

See this!

You do not have to take any more electives. They are still valid.

It's confusing I know, so I double checked this with MS a few weeks ago.  They confirmed that as Limsam says, there is no requirement to update electives completed on the old track.

Well done on the exam pass Limsam.

Ping:

Just to clarify - the main page for the Win2K MCSE on Exam Notes was written long ago when Microsoft was still threatening to decertify everyone who didn't upgrade by December 31, 2001.  At that time if your electives were retired, you were required to upgrade them or loose your MCSE status.

Microsoft has since changed their tune, decided not to decertify the NT4 MCSE's and decided to let retired electives still count toward the Win2K MCSE.  It wasn't until a couple of months ago that Microsoft changed the original policy.

Hope this helps to clear it up for you.
