I have a question which confused me for some days:

It is about MCSE path.

I've visited the links below


MCSE 2000: Messaging  on Microsoft Windows 2000 Certification


MCSE 2000: Security Certification:

and this link

It confused me I realy need to know, what MCSE Messaging doing here, and the differences between this certification and other.

Briefly is this way (8 exams) is true for getting "MCSA 2000", "MCSE 2000" and "MCDBA" all together?

70-210 or 70-270
70-228 or 70-229
70-225 or 70-226
Many Thanks

to get MCDBA you need both the 228 and 229, plus a "networking system" such as 215.

you also need an elective, such as 216.

By passing the 210 and 215 and 227 you should earn the MCSA 2000

217 would give you your "core" credits for MCSE

and 226 would count as the required design for MCSE.

To complete MCSE you need two additional electives that you have not claimed as elective or core credit on any other certification from the list:

The "messaging" option is simply a way to distinguish people who took an elective in a specific area such as exchange in this case. The other specialty is security.

Hopefully someone with direct experience with the MCDBA and the path you are asking about will also respond.

good luck.

You can use the same elective test for multiple certifications.

The following will get you to your goal:


client test
70-210 or 70-270

networking systems
70-215  (required for MCSE)
70-218  (elective for MCSE)

70-216  (required for MCSE, elective for MCDBA)

Add the following tests for MCSE

networking system

design test
70-226 (although there are easier choices)

70-229 or 70-029 (required for MCDBA)

Add one more test for the MCDBA
70-228 or 70-028

Not sure where you got your other test numbers from.
