  • They are coming out with new exams to make more money off people. But if you already have an MCSE 2000/2003 then you have earned it so they cannot take that away from you.

  • The MCSE 2003 hasn't been retired (yet).  MCSE 2000 was retired a couple of years ago, but if you earned the designation, you won't lose it.

    Microsoft has updated their certifications to be more relevant with the MCTS and MCITP certification tracks.
