    I've been a bit out of sync with my MS exams the last few years, its not my primary career focus anymore and so it kind of got put on the back burner
    I was determined to atleast get the MCSA before the exams were retired, I started this slog back in 2004 with 70-284 Exchange 2k3 exam
    This year I cracked out 290, 291, 236 and today 620 to become an MCSA:Messaging

    I had hoped to tackle the whole MCSE, but i read somewhere they retire the exams december 31st and theres no chance i will get the remaining exams done by then, besides, no more MCSE next year anyway :)

    Well beers round chappies, On to 2k8 now I think

    Edit: apparantly they are dropping the 2k exams in March 08 so perhaps i still have plenty of time to get the last 3 done (two are in the bag anyway)

    Surprisingly (considering the nature of these forums) I don't always announce it, especially individual MCPs,
    I did mention my experience with the Exchange 2k7 beta exam though I'm sure :)

    Congrats on your pass

    i'm a bit confused about the above comment though, do you mean that microsoft are going to stop the MCSE or are you going to stop studying?

    sorry for being a numpty!:rolleyes:

    There will be no more MCSE certification after the MCSE on Windows Server 2003
    the whole cert structure has changed at MS into a three tier model

    MCTS (Technology Specialist)
    MCITP (IT Professional)
    MCA (Architect)

    the closest thing to an MCSE today would probably be MCITP: Enterprise Administrator
