I would like some opinions.  I am now MCSA 2K.  I don't know if I should finish out MCSE 2K or upgrade to MCSA 2K3 then MCSE 2K3.  Please reply and give some advice.

Go for the MCSE2k. It's what you've worked on already, so stuff should be reaffirming what you already know.

Once completed with that it is only 2 tests total for both MCSA2k3 (70-292) and MCSE2k3 (70-292 + 70-296).

Cheers,

But if you sit 70-292 first, you get another cert quicker.

Basically it depends on what you are doing in your job.
I've passed MCSA W2K and was going to carry on for MCSE W2K, but we are going to start upgrading servers to 2K3 soon, so I decided to go for 70-292 next as it would be more useful in my job.

I am also MCSA 2000, I had to make the same decisions, although I am choosing to do 2003 exams for my electives, that count towards 2000 MCSE. Also benefits me at work doing the 2003 exams as we are now on a 2003 Schema and are migrating to Exchange 2003. Downside is that there are not as many study resources readily available for these exams yet.

Most companies are running 2k right now, or just starting to migrate to 2k3 (hell I know some that are just migrating to 2k). If I were you I would take the 2000 tests and finish MCSE2K first because it will still be used in companies for a few more years. If you take the upgrade exams afterwards, you will have a jump on the competition by having skills in both so that you can help in migrations when they occur (companies are already starting to look for people that know both to help in their upgrades/restructures). The upgrade exams are relatively easy if you have the 2k skills fresh in your head or you work with them daily, so it will also help you later when you take those exams.

It depends on what your doing. I'm going for my upgrade: Reason, about 60% of my time is spent on W2K3 servers.
So if your main work is W2K servers does it benifit you if you upgrade.
Well yep I'm going for it on Tuesday.
:eek:

All the best on your choice.

finish 2k then do 2k3.

You can come back to 2k3 after you finish the 2000 track.  As other's have said, you would only have to take 2 upgrade exams after you've become very familiar with the more popular and time tested 2k platform.

who knows, maybe 2k3 has some mysterious "feature" that will encourage the wait for Longhorn.

What if your just starting the MCSE certification track. Should you go w2K first then 70-292 & 70-296? or should you go straight to W2K'3? I've heard the W2K'3 tests are a lot harder.
