Exam 70-292 Set for Release August 14

Testing centers will begin accepting registrations Wednesday for 70-292: Managing and Maintaining a Windows Server 2003 Environment for an MCSA Certified on Windows 2000.

Microsoft this Thursday will release Exam 70-292, Managing and Maintaining a Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Environment for an MCSA Certified on Windows 2000. Candidates will be able to register for the exam via Prometric and Vue testing centers on Wednesday.

Exam 70-292 is a core credit option for the MCSA on Windows Server 2003 title; MCSA-Windows 2000 titleholders who pass 70-292 automatically earn the MCSA-Windows 2003 title.

Only MCSA-Windows 2000 and MCSE-Windows 2000 titleholders will be allowed to take the exam. Unlike "accelerated" or "upgrade" exams that Microsoft has released in the past, candidates can take this exam more than once until passed.

According to the exam objective guide, Microsoft recommends the following training resources for preparing for this exam:

  • Course 2209: Updating Systems Administrator Skills from Microsoft Windows 2000 to Windows Server 2003 (instructor-led course that's available at Microsoft CTECs)
  • MCSA/MCSE Self-Paced Training Kit (Exams 70-292 and 70-296): Managing, Maintaining, Planning, and Implementing a Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Environment for MCSAs and MCSEs Certified on Microsoft Windows 2000 (self-study guide available through Microsoft Press)

Course 2209 can be taken at any Microsoft CTEC; the self-paced training kit, however, will not be published until Sept. 24.

Microsoft expects to release another upgrade exam, 70-296, Planning, Implementing, and Maintaining a Windows Server 2003 Environment for an MCSE Certified on Windows 2000, on August 28.
