Hi Helen
So planning to be on the track of MCSE well u need to put some pressure on what each track is about and when preparing for the exams we get something know as MCSE Dumps which help you out..... I"m not supposed to say this to you here as Dumps are the best help that can give you a helping hand..... And if u cant find any.... mail me at wolfcreep@rediffmail.com i can help you out

dumps

by jdclyde In reply to Hello

are good for written tests, but when you get a job based on that Cert and you don't know anything, you will have a hard time keeping that job.

Using this method as a suppliment is fine, but getting an empty cert will hurt you in the long run.

I HAVE found the "Exam Cram" books to be interesting, but getting the MS cert books is a good idea too. Try to get some hands-on experience in that area as well. If you know someone that does side jobs, offer to help FOR FREE. You will learn more from that then you will from a book, and if you had to pay for a class to learn the same thing, it would cost you thousands and still not get the hands on. Well worth a few days work.

Good luck Helen!

i agree to it........... helen its better you get a hand on experience i know its tough getting one but its better in the run........... i feel getting cleared going thru dumps is easy but having an experience on hand is tough............ all the best

dumps..

by Shellbot In reply to Hello

um, i know i'm maybe a bit old fashioned, but if your not going to actually bother to learn the stuff..why do it at all?

its stuff like that which gives certs a bad name in some places..i myself am considering going for the MSCAD or MSCSD..possily even MSCDBA
its going to cost me a lot of money and a lot of hard work, but when i am done, i can honestly say to an employer..i know my stuff and paying me good money is worth it..
i have worked with people who (in my mind) cheated the exams and its not fun..it made the rest of us look bad.

listen, learn and practice...

You may want to change your post title

Changing your title from "Hello" to something more descriptive will help you get more comments. Maybe "Should students get certifications?"

If you don't do something about your spelling and punctuation, your resume will never get you an interview. Forget the cert and repeat English 101.

MCSE's don't mean too much

I have been performing systems administration on Windows servers since NT 3.1 (most people don't even know there was an NT 3.1). I probably could not pass a single MCSE certification test if I walked in there today without studying. 80% of the people I have met with MCSEs were worthless in the workforce.

MCSEs are great at getting you a job and helping your salary. They are lousy for helping you actually keep that job.

I Noticed that you hadn't asked for a career guide, so I wont give you one (yet). What you did ask for is info, so here's some of that. Try O'Reilly Press. [ http://www.oreilly.com ] They have a guide for the Cert. [ http://www.oreilly.com/pub/topic/certification ] With O'Reilly Books you really can't go wrong. And their Pocket Books come in handy for you future reference too! (I have them laying around all over the place) Another place could be 'CertYourself' [ http://www.certyourself.com/MCSE-2003.htm ] I really don't know that site personally, but it could work for you. If you have the chance, and the time, and the money, to take the Cert, go for it. And Good Luck too. (It wont hert you.) But other-wise, get expirence.!. That will get you further.
