MCSA Windows Server 2003 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is it really worth doing the MCSA as the technology seems not to be the most recent or is it still relevant? Do lots of organisations still use windows server 2003 or are most now 2008? Is studying 2003 beneficial as 2008 is similar? Or is it totally different. The version of exchange is an earlier version also 2007, where now Exchange 2010 is out. I guess I'm just wanting a professional opinion as most recent threads contain no information about microsoft exams associated with this course.

     

    Thanks for reading this thread!

  • What seems smarter - learning/getting certified on technology that's 8 years old, or 3 years old?  Although businesses may still use Server 2003, many are adopting Server 2008.  Additionally, knowing/being certfied on the most current technology will provide the most benefit to you.  Although there are some significant changes between 2003 and 2008, knowing 2008 will provide you enough knowledge that would allow you to handle 2003.
