    Hi,

    I was just wondering whether if people thought that the MCSA is worth starting or not as I am thinking of starting it? The company I currently work for runs Server 2003/Exchange 2003/XP Pro with no great rush to upgrade, and although 2008 has been out for a little while now I am assuming that 2003 and the other technologies that can be related to the MCSA will be lingering around for quite a few years yet?

    Thanks for the advise.

    Hi, MCSA on 2k3 is definitely worth getting as 2003 Server and XP will be around for a long time yet. You could always do the Vista client exam instead of the XP client if you are wanting to be certified on the newer OS's. Jim

    Yeah i'd agree with Jim.

    You can then upgrade your 2003 certs to 2008 in the future, and have both to your name.

    Thanks for the replies. I think that I will get it started sooner rather than later. Are there reccommended reads/study materials (for someone on a budget) or are they all much of a muchness?

    Thanks.
