I've been reviewing the requirements to get the MCSE: Data Management and Analytics certification, and was thinking of going the path of the MCSA: SQL 2016 Database Development pre-req. The thing is there's an overlap in the requirements. The MCSA requires passing exam 70-761 and 70-762. To get the MCSE I need to take 1 exam from a list of about 12, 70-762 being one of the options. I'm confused about the requirement overlap of exam 70-762. Once I have the MCSA do I meet the stated requirements for the MCSE. Or do I need to take a 3rd exam from the list to qualify?


Because there are many ways to obtain the MCSA the 762 is included as a choice for those who have not previously taken it. If you have already taken it then you would need to choose a different exam to obtain your MCSE.

    Thank you for answering. I was thinking that was probably the case. – Darren Jan 31 '18 at 18:15
