View Full Version : which one should I do?

I have currently practising material for Exam No 70-270 and 70-210, also I have the two operating systems. I am not sure which one of the two will be easier to pass. Someone please help me with honest advice.

I would think that 70-210 (Installing, configuring, administering Windows 2000 Pro) would be the best one to take first. Your XP lessons will build on your 2000 knowledge since XP is the upgrade. Also, Microsoft will retire the 2000 exam sooner than the XP.

Of course, neither of these two exams will be easy. I passed the Windows NT 4.0 exam (5 years ago) and it was a real bear. You have to know how to do unattended network installs and have a vast knowledge about domains and authentication. I've studied a year for 2000 and am no where near sitting for the exam.

Best of luck. Please let us know how it turns out, whatever way you decide to go!
