In order to upgrade my MCSE certification, I'm taking exams for Windows Server 2008. I could upgrade through a special upgrade path, but since I never took any exam on Windows 2003, I would first have to upgrade from 2000 to 2003, and then to 2008. I preferred to focus entirely on Windows Server 2008.
The end-goal is the MCITP: Enterprise Administrator certification. In order to achieve that, there are
4 exams 5 exams to pass. For starters, I took exam 70-643 (Windows Server 2008 Applications Infrastructure Configuration). My hope was that my experience in the webhosting business made the preparation bit easier and would also be a benefit taking the exam. As a result, I focussed more on topics like Terminal Server and Windows deployment options, and less on IIS.
I passed. 953 out of 1000. Topic needing more attention: IIS
Next up: 70-642. I'm almost getting my head around ipv6.
