    Hi,

    I currently hold an MCP in Managing and Maintaining a Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Environment (70-290) and I'm looking to refresh this as either 2008 R2 or Server 2012.

    How would I go about achieving this? Is there an MCP upgrade path for the 70-290? Perhaps this? Windows Server 2008, Server Administrator

    Thanks!

    You can't upgrade an MCP on it's own ... your best bet is looking at one of these exams

    As Ade indicated. You need at least an MCSA to be able to upgrade.

    The idea of an 'upgrade' exam is to be able to sit just the 1 exam that encompasses all of the relevant changes in the technology from the old to the new.

    MCP's were always 1 exam anyway, so what would be the point in offering an 'upgrade' path?

    Yes, I agree - look at one of the exams that make up either the MCSA for 2008 or 2012, depending on what tech. you are currently using.
