    Hello

    I'm planning on taking one of the MCSE 2003 server core exams (70-290, 70-291, 70-293, 70-294). What exam should I take first or does it matter? I would like to take the easiest ones first because my exam voucher discount runs out on 12/31/10.

    thanks,

    Joe

    Follow the number sequence, the exams are numbered like that for a reason (it's the same with the MCITP as well).

    In other words go for 70-290, then 291, 293 and 294.

    Huh??? Not sure what you mean, you get certain credentials when you pass a certain set of exams... Eg pass the 70-271 and the 70-272 and you get the MCDST, etc...

    I think he is saying, "Do you get a certification for knowing about all the certifications". :biggrin

    I don't have that one, as it covers only the Microsoft tracks. Instead, I elected to take the vendor-neutral Certification+ exam. 8)
