Roadmap for MCSE course

by rudy.vansingel In reply to Roadmap for MCSE course

Dear,

I used the Microsoft Press Self-Paced Training books.

These were my steps :

219 Designing a Microsoft? Windows? 2000 Directory Services Infrastructure Jul 03, 2002
218 Managing a Windows 2000 Network Environment May 06, 2002
217 Implementing and Administering a Microsoft? Windows? 2000 Directory Services Infrastructure Apr 24, 2002
216 Implementing and Administering a Microsoft? Windows? 2000 Network Infrastructure Feb 28, 2002
215 Installing, Configuring, and Administering Microsoft? Windows? 2000 Server Dec 28, 2001
210 Installing, Configuring, and Administering Microsoft? Windows? 2000 Professional Jun 19, 2001

Because I was already a MCSE NT4 and I did :

087 Implementing and Supporting Microsoft? Internet Information Server 4.0 Apr 17, 2000
059 Internetworking with Microsoft? TCP/IP on Microsoft? Windows NT? 4.0 Jun 14, 1999

I became a MCSE W2K

Good Luck

Wrong approach

by zbatia In reply to Roadmap for MCSE course

First of all, read the pre-requisite to this certification. Second of all, you will not achieve your goal (I assume getting the job) if you don't have hands-on skills. You would waste money, time, and ... get nothing. It is especially true now, whenthe competition is much higher because of current economy. Get a good hands-on training -- not the test preparation course. Then, when you know HOW IT WORKS, get the exams passed.

MCSE Study

by mswit10296 In reply to Roadmap for MCSE course

As one of the posted replies indicates you need to get experience. All of the certifications in the world will not make you a stand out against someone with experience. I am not sure what your background is but I would suggest looking for an opportunity to obtain some hands on experience. You may have to volunteer (read free here) your talent but do something to put on your resume as experience. Read the help wanted ads on one of the online sites. Notice it is a buyers market, that is to say the employer is looking for someone who has 20 years experience a PHD and will work for 30K. You do need the MCSE or some other certification to successfully apply for a job but the most important item on your resume is EXPERIENCE.
