    Once you complete an exam for the MCDST will you be certified MCP of MCP 2003 because of the exams being elective for mcsa 2003

    Hi Mikekool, Once you pass one of the MCDST exams you will be MCP qualified, once you pass both you will be an MCDST. To get the title MCSA 2003 you need to pass both core exams 70-290 & 70-291 and a client exam (eg, XP is 70-270) and you can use the MCDST as an elective but you need to pass 4 exams in total. Good luck!. :rolleyes:

    No. An MCP is an MCP.
    If it is in a 2003 technology, it is still an MCP.
    MCDST does not distinguish between 2000 and 2003 as the only track available is XP. The 2000 and 2003 dates refer to the Windows server version and you don't do any of that in MCDST.
    If you are an MCSA or an MCSE you can specify which era because you will have done some server exams. As has been mentioned on the forums before, it's all a bit pointless.
    If you do an MCDBA, you could do server 2000 or 2003. But you do SQL 2000. When SQL 2005 exams come out, what will that make you? MCDBA 2003/2005? It's mad.
