CCEE for Virtualization

Hello Experts,

I'm trying to do CCEE for virtualization and have referred the below link for the certification. I'm little confused about this and would like to have a clear picture before proceeding further:

I have completed CCA for Citrix Presentation Server 4.5 and XenApp 5.0 for Windows Server 2003 (259).

In order to complete, should I again take any one of the Xenapp exams? Either CCA for Citrix XenApp 5 for Windows Server 2008; or CCA for Citrix XenApp 6?

or is A18 exam needed to make sure I have completed the first part. If A18 and Xenapp6 exam are of same cost, then I think it's better to go with Xenapp 6? Correct me if I'm wrong.

    As a CCEE, you cannot pass this exam unless you have experience with XenApp, XenDesktop, XenServer and Provisioning Services.

    Ok, now if I say I have completed "259 Citrix Presentation Server 4.5 and XenApp 5.0 for Windows Server 2003" and have knowledge on XenApp 5 for Windows Server 2008 then can I say I can write the remaining 2 exams in step 1 in the following link? i.e proceed with Xenserver and Xendesktop so you complete step 1 (as I already have Xenapp5 for 2003.). And do step 2 and step 3 later on?

    The confusing thing in the above link is the note section:

    "*Please note:  While exam 259 Citrix Presentation Server 4.5 and XenApp 5.0 for Windows Server 2003: Administration and exam A18 Basic Administration for XenApp 6 are accepted as alternates for this certification, the content in the CCEE for Virtualization is based on XenApp 5 for Windows Server 2008.  Therefore, if pursuing the CCEE , experience in and/or knowledge of XenApp 5 and Windows Server 2008 is highly recommended. Please refer to the exam prep guides for exams A08 and A15 to prepare accordingly."

    Do they say xenapp5 for 2003 and exam a18 is alternative for xenapp5 or 6 for 2008.. Or you need either one?

    You cab get by with the 2003 certs.  XenApp is not hit that heavy on the CCEE exam, or it wasn't on mine.  Just make sure you know XenServer, XenDesktop and PVS.
