  • passed 70-290

    As some of you guys know I've quite a lot of experience with Microsoft Products.
    A few weeks ago I planned myself quite a few Microsoft exams to get my MCSE + security.

    I already had 70-270 quite a few years.
    Today I passed 70-290 as the first exam with a score of 928 points.

    The exams I planned to do is in the following list. The exams which I've passed are marked in green:
    • 70-270 Installing, Configuring, and Administering Windows XP Professional
    • 70-290 Managing and Maintaining a Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Environment
    • 70-291 Implementing, Managing, and Maintaining a Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Network Infrastructure
    • 70-293 Planning and Maintaining a Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Network Infrastructure
    • 70-294 Planning, Implementing, and Maintaining a Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Active Directory Infrastructure

                      Re: passed 70-290

                      Hmmm I don't understand the certification planner on the mcp site.
                      Question:
                      If I finish next friday 70-291 and after that 70-350/351. Does this make me a MCSA + security?
                      At least, this is what I understand from the MCP site?

                        You're not the only one. I prefer to look at Micrsoft's web site for certification assembly instructions. Here's what MS has to say about the MCSA: security. Yes, the 350 and 351 will be good for your MCSA: security. Then you'll only need the 70-298 to get the MCSE: security.

                        I could mention how many times I failed the 70-299 in an attempt at gaining the security extension... but I'm not feeling like willingly subjecting myself to public humiliation.

                        How many more tests to go in the 2003 track?

                          Hey wait, I see you need to do 2 security exams to get my MCSA + Security certificate?

                          to bad, I hoped I only needed to do 70-270, 70-290, 70-291 and 70-350(or 70-351)
                          But I also need 70-299.

                          Of next Friday first 70-291, one week later probably 70-350 (can't find books or CBT nuggets for 70-351) and 2 weeks later probably 70-299

                          Then I'm MCSA security ...

                          I thought I needed to do all those exams:

                            Yeah. I thought when you mentioned the "70-350/351" you were meaning that you were going to take both of the exams (in which case you would have your MCSA security extension). Now I think you meant one or the other.

                            Sounds like you're making good time.

                              I think is useless to do both exams
