Which exam to take??? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    I am one elective exam away from being MCSE and I'm thinking of doing 70-284:Implementing and Managing Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 as an elective exam.  But I was told that I could just skip 2003 and do 2007 version of this exam.  So far I've done

    70-290
    70-291
    70-293
    70-294

    70-270

    70-297

    My questions are:

    1. Which exam do I need to take that's equivalent to 70-284 but a 2007 version?
    2. Would I still be MCSE if I took an elective exam in 2007 version
    3. Because I've done all the exams in 2003 version if I need to upgrade this to 2007, which exam(s) do I need to take?

    Thank you in advance.

  • I don't know whether I can help you ,I am trying .
    If you want to get MCTS on exchange Server 2007,you can directly apply to Exam 70-236: TS:Exchange Server 2007, Configuring
    Also ,I have not seen any upgrade exams  from Exchange server 2003 to  2007.
    you can see all of exams related to Exchange Server 2007 from the following threads
    http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/certification/view-by-technology.aspx
    Besides , in my  opinion, you can consider upgrading your Server 2003 credentials to 2008 credentials .such as  MCTS: Windows Server 2008 Active Directory Configuration,MCTS: Windows Server 2008 Network Infrastructure Configuration   and MCTS: Windows Server 2008 Applications Infrastructure Configuration.

    hope it useful for u

  • Thanks for the reply.  However, I'm still a bit confused over whether I would still be MCSE if I went ahead with exam 70-236 - exchange 2007 configuring.  I might just stick with exchange 2003 and upgrade everything to 2008 later if it's complicated.

    Thanks.

  • no ,if you pass 70-236 ,you will get Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist (MCTS): Microsoft Exchange Server 2007, Configuration.
    besides ,you want to upgrade everything to 2008.in my opinion,you want to upgrade your mcse 2003 to 2008.am i right ?if so ,you can take upgrade exams or you can take separate exam directly creditting to Server 2008.
    if you want to take upgrade exams ,you can see How to Upgrade MCSE/MCSA 2003 to Server 2008

    if you take separate exam directly ,you can see Windows Server 2008 Certification
