    Ok having just done my 2003 mcse i was wondering if i should be studying more for the 2003 exchange or looking further down and expanding my study to include 2007 stuff and get the 2007 exam not the 2003?

    What you happy people think would be a better aim.

    Are you working in IT just now mate? If so why not base your decision on what infrastructure you support or may support (difficult to predict I know!) in the near future.

    If it helps I’m going for adding messaging after I complete the MCSE (whenever that is!). :biggrin

    Many companies still use Exchange 2003 (and some even use 2000!). Therefore, getting certified on 2003 may come in handy, and you can always go after Exchange 2007 later. The reverse may not be true, once the Exchange 2003 exam is retired (whenever that may be).

    The TS exam exchange 2007 (70-236) presumes you have 2003 knowledge. And it helps a lot to have 2003 knowledge to understand the concepts and changes in 2007.
    I would say do them both.
