Which MCSA track should I pursue: 2000 or 2003? I've got
about five years (solid) experience running small (less
than 200 users) Windows NT 4.0 and 2000 Server networks,
plus an outdated MCP in Windows NT 4.0 Server. I
currently run a 150 node Windows 2000 domain with no
plans to upgrade to 2003 until early next year (blame it
on the enterprise / exchange folks!)

Since my day-to-day taks are with Windows 2000, should I
take the easy route and stick with Windows 2000
certification exams, or setup a Windows 2003 lab just for
