  • Question

  • Hello everyone,

    I have done all the courses required for MCSA 2003 but I havent done the exams. Can I skip to doing the "Upgrading MCSA 2003 to windows server 2008" exam or do I need to hold the certification for MCSA 2003 in order to do it?

    Thanks

  • Hi Avellador,

    You completed MSCA 2003 course so, you should go for exams first and than for 2008 Server.
    The point is; upgarding is availble after passing MSCA or MSCE.
    MCSA 2003 containts 4 exams, easy ones.

    Please, find a link to MCTS 2008 upgrade:
    http://www.microsoft.com/learning/mcp/mcts/windowsserver/2008/transition/default.mspx#MCSA

    It should give you a view of 2008 Certification.

  • You have to attain the MCSA 2003 certification first. You cannot upgrade from something you haven't attained. Finish what you started with the Windows 2003 track, then look forward.
