    Ok, so now I am juggling on which to do first, CCNA or MCSE.

    Im thinking CCNA track as it is a single test and should be over fairly
    quickly, where as the MCSE has 7 tests.

    My question about the MCSE, is there any particular order or time constraint
    in which you have to take the tests? Say once you take the first one, you
    have to complete the track in x amount of months?

    Would it be more recommended to go with the Windows Server 2003 track over
    W2K? And what electives would be most relevant for use in the workplace?

    why would you spend your money getting certified on a product which has
    already been replaced, let alone has been largely deployed

    Kinda depends on where he is at in his cycle...

    Rather than implementing cutting edge solutions, I guess he might be
    supporting older stuff that somebody else put in. So it can be worthwhile
    being certified in what you're using - although, then again it's probably
    better to be certified in what you will be upgrading to... I see your point.

    oh hell.

    You don't, you spend the company's.
    Does it really even matter what version you have? You only use those 4
    letters to get by the HR filters. Just slap MCSE on there (once you
    actually have it) and forget the version.

    As JaR once said in microsoft.public.cert.exam.mcse
    I had to call Gateway about 20 times last month.

    Actaully quite impressive, my average hold time was
    between 5 to 15 seconds.

    ....and they spoke English.


    Sounded like a bunch of kids, but heh, at least I could
    talk to them.

    and 2003 is not cutting edge, it is old! besides, there are no huge
    differences between 2000 & 2003. employers are usually wow'ed that you have
    the latest and greatest certs.

    true story.

    Back in 2001 an ms partner did some work for the company I'm over here
    with [now] and during that time I got speaking to one of the so called
    'techies'. He kept on about, if it's in beta we don't want to know
    about it 'cos it's old hat. Late last year I bumped into him in
    furniture store, nope he wasn't buying a new four poster, he was the
    'duty manager' - way to go John!

    As _unanswered_ once said in microsoft.public.cert.exam.mcse
    I use them, that's all that matters.

    I like the cow boxes.

    What a weird concept; why not choose a cool pattern like a tiger, or
    leopard, or a wasp? which suggests the product is gonna take names and kick

    ....although in that light, a fat ugly cow was probably quite appropriate.

    Ahhhh...but you the time Gateway started, Women were into Cow
    Patterns...I know, because my mom, grandmother, aunts, and ex-wife were
    awestruck by the hawt cow pattern. Gateway was apparently trying to appeal to
    the women folk and it made them big.
