I am just wondering how long it should take as far as study time, on average for the MCSE exams?\n\nI took and passed my Network+ exam about a month and a half after I started studying for it. I am basically studying after work for about 2 1/2 hours a day 4 days a week. I thought that I was pretty damn smart with computing. I am finding though, that where Comptia is direct with their questions, ex: "What layer of the OSI model is responsible for encryption?", Microsoft spends a whole paragraph with the scenario before you even get to what they want to know. I am not giving up, but I have been working on 20-715 for about 2 months, and just now do I feel brave enough to take the exam. I am wondering if I am just a moron, or is this stuff really as hard I am thinking it is. It does not help any that I read these posts of dude who are starting on a exam one week and have passed it a week later.
