Core Exams (5 Exams Required)
Four operating system exams. Candidates must pass one exam from each
set of operating system exams client operating system and networking system in the table that follows. Candidates can
complete the core operating system exams requirement by passing either four Windows 2000 or four Windows XP
Professional/.NET Enterprise Server exams or a combination of both.
One design exam. Candidates must pass one
exam that provides proof of expertise for design skills for specific Microsoft server technologies.
Elective Exams (2 Exams Required)
The elective exams provide a valid and reliable measure of technical proficiency and expertise in
solution design and implementation. MCSE candidates should also have at least one year of experience implementing and
administering a network operating system, implementing and administering a client operating system, and designing a

Note: Microsoft plans to announce the full requirements for the MCSE on Microsoft Windows .NET
Server 2003 and Microsoft Certified Systems Administrator (MCSA) on Windows .NET Server 2003 in early 2003. In
response to customer feedback, the MCP program will offer an upgrade path consisting of one or two exams that will
enable current MCSE's on Windows 2000 and MCSA's on Windows 2000 to update their respective certification to the
Windows .NET Server 2003 track in a time- and cost-effective manner. Complete details about the upgrade offer will be
announced in early 2003. Individuals should continue to pursue training and certification in Windows 2000 because
skills acquired for Windows 2000 are highly relevant to and provide a solid foundation for Windows .NET Server. To
retain certification, MCSE's on Windows 2000 and MCSA's on Windows 2000 will not be required to pass Windows .NET
Server 2003 exams.
