OK, Many of you out there may have the MCITP: Enterprise Administrator certification. It took me personally 15 months to get this certification I finished it in December of 2010, and now with the advent of Server 2012 being released out comes a new MCITP: EA no wait WHAT!!?!?!?!?! they are bringing back the MCSE!!!!!! So wait let me get this straight after working extremely hard for almost a year and a half my EA certificate has been downgraded to a MCSA: Server 2008.
At least I only have to take 3 test now to get an MCSE but still Come on Microsoft! Downgrading a certificate? Give me a break. At least now the MCSE is no longer tied to the Server edition that you earn it for. It’s just a certificate that you need to now take another Microsoft test every 3 years.

Let me break this down again for those that are MS certified:
You need to have the MCSA:2012 which if you have the MCSA:2008 is 70-417.
Once that’s done you take the 70-413 and 70-414.
All well sounds like I have a tall order ahead of me: continue finishing my MBA (6 classes left!), take the VCP5 and figure out the MCSE exams. Phew! now I just need to finance those certifications!
