I want to eventually get certified as an MCSE for Windows 2000. I hope to have my A+ certification by the end of July. I don't have alot of practical experience in hardware repair, but I can get by. The retirement for Windows NT is for December 2000. Should I do a self study to get the NT Server certificate, or take advantage of an offer to get certified as CCNA at an certified Cisco training center, for free I might add, and lose out on the NT Server certification?

I'm not sure I entirely understand the scenario but if your current choices are doing the CCNA for free or doing an NT exam on your own dime that expires in December, I think the CCNA is clearly the better choice.

Plus, the knowledge you gain in the process of the CCNA training will give you a head start on the exams you'll need to pass for your MCSE (particularly those portions having to do with general networking and TCP/IP).

It was suggested to me that if would be valuable for a person with no networking experience to try to obtain at least the NT server certificate before it expires in 12/2000, the point being, that there will still be alot of NT deployment out there, and the NT Server certificate could count as an elective for the MCSE2000 certification. thanks for your feedback.
