My 23 year old son has an illness, that, hopefully he will have recovered
from very soon. In the mean time he wants to make use of his time at home.
If he starts "collecting" Microsoft certs where do you start?

But exam-wise, it all depends on what his strengths and interests are. If
he's a database guy, then 70-228 or 70-229 would be good exams for him.
If he's kind of a help-desk guy, then 070-210, 215, and 270 are good starts.
This is all assuming he has experience. If he doesn't, he can definitely
start studying, but the advanced certs (MCSA, MCSE, MCAD, MCDBA, etc) are
generally intended for people who have real-world experience. If he's just
beginning, make sure he uses, tests, breaks, and fixes the product in
question. Then study. Then repeat. Then, and only then, should he take the

First - I hope your son recovers quickly.
If he's interested in programming the MCAD / MCSD are good certs to
have. I have a posting on my blog about getting started with
certifications. Have him check it out.
