    do NOT go to ITT Tech for an AA. It is an expensive school and I regret
    every moment and dollar I spent going there. The credits are not
    transferable to a normal community college or 4 year university.

    field have them think of issues for you to solve and of course play with the
    software yourself, setup a small network in your home even if the clients
    are old Pentiums and the host is whatever else you can scrap up. lastly, if
    you have said friend close to you, have him do something to your network and
    try to fix it. All of that should give you some good experience that you
    need not only for the MCSE test but for the employer that hires you for your
