MCSE (2003) - Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer on Windows Server 2003

More information is available for this certification from the certification company.

Overview

Microsoft's Micrsosoft Certified Systems Engineer on Windows Server 2003 (MCSE 2003) certification was announced in February 2003. The certification will be available in the second half of 2003. Study materials for the core tests in the 70-29x series are starting to appear. Materials for other tests will be available in the fall and winter of 2003.

If you are thinking of putting off your certification because the new one was announced, don't. Go ahead and get your MCSE on Windows 2000 now. When the new tests (and materials) become available, you can take two tests (70-292 and 70-296) to upgrade your status.

Keep an eye here for study materials due to become available. As soon as they appear on Amazon, the author of this site will try to have them posted.

Judging by traffic on the site, there is a lot of interest in the upgrade route from MCSE/2000 to MCSE/2003. Several study guides are coming out for the two exams required. Note that you can order the study guides now and they will be shipped to you as soon as they become available. In many cases there will be no shipping cost and your credit card won't be charged until the books ship. Quantities will probably be limited when the books first come out, so the earlier in the line you are the better. Why wait? Go over and check out the book selections for 70-292 and 70-296 today!
