I can tell you my experience with 70-292.  I am NT4 and 2000 MCSE.  I did the 70-292 in Dec 2004 and failed it.  I was so disgusted and upset at spending so much effort and failing, that I didn't bother again until this year.  Big mistake, as now the testbank is in excess of 750 questions.  Well, I failed it again by about 2 questions.  I should mention as well that I have been working with 2003 for the past 4 years.  I plan to try again, however with work demands, it is difficult to spare the hours and with the discontination date fast approaching, it's getting tougher.  I have co-workers who have also failed it, and one that wrote it 3 times in a row before passing.  In my opinion it is the most difficult exam I have encountered, but then again it is the first upgrade exam I have done.  Usually I do them one at a time.   I wish you good luck and recommend TestKing and the Transcenders.  I truthfully did not find the Microsoft Press 2003 Upgrade textbook of much use, unless all of your 2000 knowledge has been retained, for it focuses on only the changes.

Hi Bedfse:

   Thanks for your friendly advice, I was passed the 70-292 in the mid of January, 70-292 is very difficult to pass.

   I am moving forward to 70-296, I wish I can make it before 31,March,2008.

Passed the 70-292 Dec 11, 2007 and 70-296 Jan 28, 2008.  Did not find the 70-296 as difficult as the 70-292, but it may be because I simply kept on studying the same material.  Nonetheless I only had to do the 70-296 once.  I have been teaching 2003 server since 2005 and it took at least 9 months of non stop studying to get both these exams.  I can totally relate to the stress and work involved in this effort and I wish those still working on it extra good luck.

Yeah I really procreatinated on this one.. I'm on maternity leave right now hoping I can squeeze these ones in before March 31st.  Does anyone know what happens if I write 292 (and pass), but don't do 296 in time?  Would I be able to just write the 2 exams required for the jump from mcsa to mcse (if its still 3 exams.. I'm really out of the loop)?

Hi Everyone :


   I was passed the 70-296 on Wednesday night, this is the last version of the MCSE, I will deeply remember this certificate.

   This is the second upgrade from MCSE NT 4.0 in my life, when I compare to the first upgrade "70-240" The first one is very tough and almost kill my life.

   I will focus my security & management certificate (CISSP, CISA, PMP, CCIE) and hope your guys are all pass the MCSE 2003 upgrade.


Good Luck !

MCSE (NT4.0, 2000, 2003)

I failed it Wednesday by about 3 questions.  I am taking it tomorrow.  I hope I pass (last day!).  If not I guess I am starting all over again with the 2008 certs.  Thank goodness for the 2nd shot deal.  This wasn't that bad of an exam, but I haven't taken a MS exam in 7 years.  There are a few trick questions on there that must have been weighted heavily too.  

Am I right in thinking that if I pass this I get my MCSA 2003 and then I only need 2 more tests to get to the new MCITP (MCSE 2008)?  If so I am glad I didn't worry about the 296 exam.  

Wish I had tried this one earlier though!  Smiley
