    Hi there

    I have passed the following MCP exams and got my Win2k MCSA so far and if I am planning to upgrade it to MCSA Win Server 2003 not to take the 70-292, I know for sure I have to take 70-290 and 70-291. But I am not sure do I need to pass 70-270 as well ?

    Passed :

    70-210
    70-214
    70-215
    70-218
    70-271
    70-272
    70-284


    Please kindly advise ASAP.

    What Sparky said, if you're already a MCSA 2k all you need to do is the upgrade exam :)

    If you don't want to take the single exam upgrade route then all you need to do is take 290 and 291. 210 counts as the client exam for the 2003 track.

    Actually you have on a lot of exams for an MCSA..

    Then I looked again and worked out if you had 70-216 and 70-217 you would be an MCSE 2000.

    Have you thought about doing these two exams?

    http://www.microsoft.com/learning/mcp/mcse/requirements.mspx

    As of November 2006 they have not expired.

    Also you can then lever your other exams in terms of additional Certs.

    For example if you then took 70-285 you would end up a MCSE in Messaging.

    Getting the MCSE on 2000 will help your career out a lot more than getting the MCSA on 2003. But ultimately, the decision is up to you.

    As stated earlier, to upgrade your MCSA on 2000 to 2003, you can pass 290 and 291 instead of 292. All this information is on the MCP Member site. Once you're logged in, click the Certification Planner button to see the exact exams you need to take.
