To earn the MCSE on Windows Server 2003 certification, you must pass seven exams (in any order):
Four exams on networking systems
One exam on client operating systems
One exam on design
One elective exam
Choose certifications based on what your career goal is. Most people feel that experience is more important than certifications in Real Life(tm); however, you should examine what the job requirements are for positions in which you are interested.

At first I want to tell you something about this certification. Microsoft certifications are very popular and necessary in critical IT functions. And MCSE cert refers to ‘Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer’. This certification is mainly based on the Microsoft Windows platform and Microsoft Windows Server System.
But six exams are required for becoming Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE) they are four in networking system exams, one in client operating system exam and one in design exam. But it will be regarded as pre-requisites to have experience in computer networking, NT Workstation, NT Server, or Novell NetWare and in basic networking protocols as TCP/IP.
However, for the best path for passing this exam you just need to have clear concept in terms and skilled potentiality to give in exam. And for that purpose you have to just study, study and study. That’s the only way I could recommend. But to achieve this certification successfully you may take any good MCSE training course. But that will cost you much.
On the other hand, there are a thousand of sources of tips, study-guide, questions-answers guides, and various other materials in online on website. But the fact is to choose the best and right one for appropriate preparation.
It will be better for you to go with self-study. For study materials the MS Press books and Sybex are great with all relevant and necessary info. But the main thing is studying and practicing a lot as much as you can. There is no alternative to it. The practice tests are must as they will tell you whether you are truly prepared for this exam or not. So studying with practice tests is the most effective way.
But yeah boot camps are also another popular method for preparation of this exam. But all these cost you much. So I also took self-study method for my exam. There are so many helpful study materials, videos, CD and updates for this exam. So just go through on them. You will be benefited. But remember that the first and foremost thing is to study hard. So keep it regularly.
Hope my recommendation will help you.
