Beta: 70-218, Managing a Win2K Network Environment

MCSA core exam heads into beta testing Dec. 17 to Dec. 21.

Exam 70-218, Managing a Microsoft Windows 2000 Network Environment, heads into beta testing Dec. 17 to Dec. 21. While in beta, the exam will be numbered 71-218.

The exam is a core credit for the MCSA on Microsoft Windows 2000 and elective credit for the MCSE on Windows 2000. It measures skills for administering, supporting, and troubleshoot Win2K networks. As of this writing, no self-study tools are available from Microsoft Press or from third-party vendors, so Microsoft recommends that beta candidates have proficiency with troubleshooting file, print and Web resources and clients and servers, auditing and managing security, 2000, and configuring and troubleshooting Active Directory and remote access.
