    Quick question:

    Presuming I get MCSA 2003 using 270, 290, 291 and my MCDST as elective:

    If I do 70-284 next, on my way to getting MCSE, it is correct that when I pass 284 it will upgrade my MCSA to MCSA:messaging on 2003?


    That would be cool.
    Thanks

    if you didnt have the MCDST then passing all the exams makes you a MCSA:Messenging but not a MCSA!

    Uh... what? :blink Dude, it's not possible to get the MCSA: Messaging without getting the MCSA.

    MCSA
    70-290
    70-291
    client exam (210/270/620)
    elective (in this case, 284)

    MCSA: Messaging
    70-290
    70-291
    client exam (210/270/620)
    70-284

    Therefore, doing those four exams would get you the MCSA and MCSA: Messaging simultaneously.
