70-290 Exam, Clients RRS feed

  • Question

  • At my employers request i will be attempting the 70-290 &70-291 exams in the near future (Jan 30, 2011 for the 290) My question is: The exam origanly covered Windows 2000 and legacy OS's, Presently we have Vista and 7.  Do Microsoft exams "keep up with the times?" or not?  Should I expect it to still cover 98 & 2000 as clients? or should i prepare for all the new stuff introduced with Vista and 7?  I am certain I will see XP.
    I thank you in advance for any info one might provide.

  • The 70-290 and 291 are specific to Server 2003, not Server 2000.  The "Skills Measured" will give you an idea of what you'll be tested on.  Since these two exams are part of the MCSA/MCSE designation, you're more likely to see questions related to the integration with WinXP.

  • These exams focus on the server side so having down them recently I would not think you would see any questions realting to any OS version.

    This is why the MCSA/MCSE require a Client operating system but these are independent of the server exam requirements.

    Hope this helps and good luck,

    Regards
