What is the best way to pass exams for MCSE?
October 3, 2010 | Registered CommenterGSL
Best way is to have experience as Microsoft outlines in the profiles of each exam.

For example the 70-290 (which is a part of the MCSA and MCSE) -

Audience Profile
The Microsoft Certified Systems Administrator (MCSA) on Windows Server 2003 credential is intended for IT professionals who work in the typically complex computing environment of medium to large companies. An MCSA candidate should have 6 to 12 months of experience administering client and network operating systems in environments that have the following characteristics:

* 250 to 5,000 or more users
* Three or more physical locations
* Three or more domain controllers
* Network services and resources such as messaging, database, file and print, proxy server, firewall, Internet, intranet, remote access, and client computer management
* Connectivity requirements such as connecting branch offices and individual users in remote locations to the corporate network and connecting corporate networks to the Internet


More complex exams have different profiles and ask for 12 to 18 months experience.

Too many noobies try to brain dump its so silly as it can cost you everything if found out and employers can see right trough it. I am not a fan of training camps that take on noobies they should be struck off for been unprofessional!!

Besides experience on CV is what counts in the real world! Many people i know at the top of the IT game don't even have any certs. They worked there way up.

I agree, i went to college and it was a waste of time...

I do work for a fairly large company and been lucky enough to work on all servers; most of the stuff I have learnt is from my senior manager, making mistakes, VMware and now IT Idiots...

I guess no easy way then just have to keep on studying away...

Thanks Supernova

Well my words sound harsh but i think people would be better professionals by doing it the right way. I used to work in a recruitment agency you wouldn't believe how many college and university leavers we saw with CCNA's with zero experience on their CV's.playing with labs doesn't get you past entry level jobs and **** having high end certs without experience on CV can actually go against you when applying for a job ***. I would expect a CCNA to have a history of IT jobs starting from the bottom up.

Getting a entry level job in IT to be honest is the first step for anyone i would say a A+, N+ and MCDST can all be done as entry level anything above that doesn't really count without the experience to back it up.

You cant go from white belt to black belt in most martial arts just by reading a book

Sounds like your on track ... get them entry level certs out the way ... good luck
