"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The current MCSE track is for Server 2003, 2008 is covered by the newer MCITP track

If you have enough time and plan to do the exams fairly quickly I would got for the MCSE 2003 then upgrade to MCITP Enterprise Administrator  which is the 2008 equivalent.

If your time is limited you could do the MCSA 2003 (4 exams) then Upgrade that to MCITP Server Admin and then do the MCITP Enterprise Admin.


In my opinion you follow the windows server 2003 after that you can upgrade with windows server 2008.
