  • Question

  • Hi,  I did MCTS on vista (exam #70-620) one year before, I was planned to do MCSE 2003 on that time but due to some reasons I was not able to do it. Now I wish to complete it. My question is that which should I do MCSE 2003 or MCITP Server 2008 according to present situvation and future technology. Also please mention the learning portal & materials, how could I access those.

    Thanks in Advance

  • Hi It is advisable to start the MCITP track on Windows Server 2008. Since you have the 70-620 that qualifies as teh client certification requirement

     

    visit http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/certification/cert-windowsserver.aspx#tab2 for further information. Please let me know on what you mean by "mention the learning portal & materials, how could I access those." which portal are you refering to?

  • Hi,

     

    If you want to go for MCSE 2003 certification, you need to pass 6 more exams apart from 70-620 which you have already passed.  You can check the exams required for MCSE certification here: http://certificationexamworld.blogspot.com/2011/07/how-to-get-mcse-certification.html

    And 70-620 exam also provides the credit towards MCITP: Consumer Support Technician on Windows Vista, MCITP: Enterprise Support Technician on Windows Vista, and MCITP: Enterprise Administrator on Windows Server 2008 certifications. 

    For  MCITP: Enterprise Administrator on Windows Server 2008 certification, you need to pass four more exams (70-640, 70-642, 70-643, and 70-647). 

    I think it will be beneficial for you to go for  MCITP: Enterprise Administrator on Windows Server 2008 certification because MCSE 2003 certification will  demonstrate your expertise with Windows Server 2003 while it will provide you expertise in Windows Server 2008 which is the latest technology.

    But it totally depends on your area of interest. You can analyse both of the certifications and certification requirements and decide accordingly....

    You can buy the books for Microsoft certifications or any learning software to get yourself prepared for the exam. 
    All the best!
