    None apply to Sun, so you can go for whichever MCSE version you want. There are currently two MCSE tracks: Windows 2000 and Windows 2003.

    You can certainly do self-study for the Windows Server 2003 exams, and there are no prerequisites for it... but you should probably start with the workstation exams first, like 70-270, 70-271 and 70-292. That's not a requirement... just a recommendation.

    If you don't have the A+ and/or Network+, I'd encourage you to do those as well.

    Judging by your very brief intro, it sounds like your a programmer/software engineer. If that's what you are/what you want to go into, then I suggest that you do not do the MCDST/MCSA/MCSE, but rather do either one (or more) of the following (developers track rather than the support track):

    MCAD
    MCSD
    MCPD
    Or any one of the .Net MCTS

    However if you want to go into the support side rather than stay in the programming/software engineering side then go for the MCSE, MCSA, MCDST.

    Hope this helps

    C# would probably be the easiest MS language for you to transition into. Well, J++ in VS 6.0 might have been better but it's obsolete now, so...

    Mate, do you realise that the MCSE is *seven* exams, covering a multitude of different topics and technologies and some of them are as tough as old boots?

    True, true... That's why MS states:

    An MCSE candidate should have at least one year of experience implementing and administering a network operating system in environments with the following characteristics:

    • 200 to 26,000 supported users

    • Five to 150 physical locations

    • Typical network services and applications including file and print, database, messaging, proxy server or firewall, dial-in server, desktop management, and Web hosting

    • Connectivity needs including connecting individual offices and users at remote locations to the corporate network and connecting corporate networks to the Internet

    In addition, an MCSE candidate should have at least one year of experience in the following areas:

    • Implementing and administering a desktop operating system

    • Designing a network infrastructure
