Yeah, but thats just it.....2003 is existing and in place, all of my new installations (ie all the interesting work) I'm doing now are 2008. Lets not forget that 2008 R2 is in Beta 1 now also.
I know that MCSE is not 'technically' retired, but lets face it....in practice it's pretty near end of life, so why would you study for it.
That's like paying for a passport and asking them to make it expire in a few months, your value for effort will demish quicker than these damn qualifications do on their own anyway.
I'm currently studying for 70-642 towards my mcitp, doing it self study and it's not as easy as I had expected to be honest.
