  • MCSE 2000 or MCSE 2003

    Hello everyone, (please help )
    I currently hold the MCSA W2K certification as well as Exchange 5.5.
    (70-281; 70-210; 70-215; 70-21
    I am looking for advice on whether I should continue with the MCSE W2K track or follow the MCSE W2K3 track. It appears that 4 more exams would be required to finish the MCSE W2K track since Exchange 5.5 counts as an elective. It would take 6 exams for the W2K3 track.
    I would like to have certifications that are with current technologies (W2K3 Server), although there are three things I have issues with (since I am a father of two and married):
    1. Time required to study and take the exams
    1. 70-290 and 70-291 would basically be like a recap of MCSA 2000
    2. 4 exams are more attractive than 6
    Does one's MCSE certification expire at any time (for W2K or W2k3)?
    Which track should I focus on? (Any tips or suggestions are welcome).

    Finish the Win2K track and then do the 2 "upgrade" exams to obtain the Win2K3 MCSE. Don't know how Exchange 5.5 will fit into this equation. This way you have 2 MCSE tracks basically for the price of one. You may need to do the Exchange 2K3 (or another elective) to qualify for the MCSE 2K3. Someone may be able to supply the answer while I research it though.
