  • You need MCSA to obtain your MCSE certification therefore you will need to pass 5 exams.

    With regards to whether ICT System Support-Level 3 will help you, yes it will as it gives you some knowledge/experience with Windows Server technology however the MCSE is based on 2012 so you will still need to study the differences between 2003 and 2012.

  • You never stated you already had the MCSA certification. 

    If you've already got your MCSA then all you need to do are exams 413 and 414.
