MCSE: SQL vs. Exchange

By Michael Gorsuch ·
Alright, I'm not too far from completing my MCSE. I have 1 elective remaining, and I'm not sure if I should do Exchange or SQL 2000. If I take SQL, I'll be 1 exam away from my MCDBA, which might be nice.

I guess my quesiton boils down to this: does holding a cert in Exchange2K add enough value to warrant me taking it, or would I get greater value out of SQL?

Exchange is a gret exam, and very valuable in a career for a person who wants to be an Exchange admin, or who is already working in and needs the cert...

The SQL does the same for the same kind of person.

Which one are you?

If you enjoy databases, go the SQL, and finish the MCDBA immediately. Both Exchange admins and DBA's make good money, so it's all up to you and which you are leaning more towards...

You can do it!

Exchange is used by many companies

by hitchcock4 In reply to MCSE: SQL vs. Exchange

The title says most of it: Exchange is used by companies big, medium, and small. SQL is also widely used, but not so much by the smaller companies.
Both are useful, but I think that Exchange is in more demand right now.
