Test Your Exchange 2003 Design Skills

Exam 70-285 now available for MCSE: Messaging on Windows 2003 candidates.

Microsoft on March 26 released the latest exam in its MCSE roster, 70-285, Designing a Exchange Server 2003 Organization. The exam counts as an elective toward the MCSE on Windows 2003, but it also counts as a core exam aimed specifically at messaging specialists planning to obtain the MCSE: Messaging on Windows 2003 title.

The Exchange specialization is one of several that were announced last September, in an effort by the company to help employers identify highly specialized technical workers. (See "New MCP Titles Highlight Exchange Expertise" in the News archive for more information.)

According to the exam guide, candidates who plan to take 70-285 should have at least one year of experience planning, designing and managing an enterprise-scale, Exchange-based messaging system.

Microsoft currently offers one training course related to this exam: Clinic 2008: Designing a Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 Organization. The clinic is a two-day instructor-led course that is available at Microsoft CTECs worldwide.
