  • Hi,

    The upgrade exams from MCSA 2003 to MCITP have been retired, you can now go for MCSA: Server 2008 by passing exams 70-640, 70-642, 70-646 (these used to provide MCITP: Server admin. but now you get MCSA 2008)

    From MCSA: Server 2008 you can upgrade to MCSA: Server 2012 by passing exam 70-417.

    Or go straight for MCSA: Server 2012 by passing 3 exams (70-410,70-411,70-412), this is in most cases the shortest path to MCSA: Server 2012 with only 3 exams.

  • Thanks Danny. That's very clear response.

    Will prepare for MCSA 2012 then.
