MCSE Core courses... What's Up!!!

By scott.miles ·
I have recently heard that if I do not complete my core courses by Dec. 31, 2000, none of the tests I have completed will count for anything. Can anyone clarify this for me. I have a 3 more tests to cram in by Dec 31 if this is the case.

Maintain Certification

If you have completed the 3 NT4 exams (NT4 Wrkstn, NT4 Serv, NT4 Serv Ent.) then you can take the Accelerated 2000 Exam and the remaining 3 electives to become NT4 and 2000 Certified that won't expire at the end of the year.

The way I see it is...

If you finish all the exams except Proxy server before the end of the year you can still qualify as MCSE in NT4 as Proxy is the only exam Microsoft havent changed for the 2000 track, If you think this is wrong please let me know as im in the same boat as the originator of this discussion.

MCSE Tests expiring

I think you're right, but check Microsoft's site: and a bunch other sites. But no worries, you can have mine. I am not going for the Win2000 Cert as Microsoft has already announced that Win2000 is being replaced next spring, and with another new certification. I'm tired of being fucked-over by Bill Gates and looking towards a Cisco Certification. Anything but Microsoft.

Test retirements

by tnelson In reply to MCSE Core courses... What ...

The 4.0 core tests will be retired in Dec. What that means is that you will not be able to take 4.0 core tests after that. If you have passed tests already which are going to be retired, they are still good, however they give you one full year after a test is retired to take the replacement test. So if you wish to be certified as quickly as possible, you must complete the remaining tests prior to Dec. Otherwise you will be forced to take the 2000 tests. If you do pass all the tests, you will have to pass the replacement tests before the end of next year... so either take the tests now and then take the replacement tests, or just start working on the replacement tests now. Just my 2 cents, I hope it helped.
