I remmeber begning study for MCSE couple of years ago. I left servers for 3.5 years. now I see windows 2008 and 2012. I want to get back into servers and do the full wack MCSE, but its not called that anymore? What is it called and does anybody know the exams to take in order to achieve the NOW new MCSE for which I do not know the name of! many thanks

am I correct in saying that windows 2008 exams are finished and there are only windows 2012 exams? I used up until windows 2003, even if I do the windows 2012 exams should I still learn about windows 2008 or am I wasting my time?

Please kindly assist.

As far as learning 2008 from a certification standpoint your focus needs to be on the current products (Server 2012 R2, Windows 8.1, etc.) but from a practical one knowing the earlier will be necessary.  Server 2012 and 2012 R2 are just now starting to see significant adoption and there's still a lot of 20088 R2 and prior out there.

Too many email signature changes to deal with?

Are you constantly being asked to update your organization's email signatures? Do they take up too much of your time? Wouldn't you love to be able to manage all signatures from one central location, easily design them and deploy them quickly to users. Well, you can!

Dear,

On 2008 its called MCTS( MICTOSOFT CERTIFIED TECHNOLOGY SPECIALIST) if you pass any 2008 cert. Exam you will earn it. HOWEVER if you want to make your carrier or if you are expert in a particulars technology like Ms Exchange, Active Directory, Networking so there would be 2,3 combined exams you need to pass which will let you Earn MCITP (MICROSOFT CERTIFIED INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY PROFESSIONAL)
I want you to search on google.com and type MCITP cert exams path.
Additional information for you. You can register for a free exam which is on Hyper -V now a days Microsoft launched this exam for IT professional and once you register they will email you a coupon code which will free your exam.Good Luck

For certification purposes I'd skip 2008 altogether and focus on 2012.  So I'd go for MCSA Server 2012 and MCSE Server Infrastructure.  For work purposes however I'd make sure I knew 2008.

If I see a resume with Server 2008 based certification on it I'm not going to be overly impressed.  However because experience working with Server 2012 is more rare Server 2012 related certification is more likely to catch my eye.
