mcse advise

i'm currently considering an mcse career track.  what would someone already certified recommend as the best order for taking the required tests.
i've considered taking the three required for mcp+internet first, then adding the rest over time.  i'm also concerned by the time table for the introduction of the new win2000 protocols and wonder if it might be best to just pass some minor test to gain my mcp then begin the process just before the new exams are available. your advice would be most welcome.

I just recived my MCSE about 6 months ago and would recommend you do the NT4.0 track first. This way you only have to do 2 win2000 exams to remain certified. As for order of exams I would recommend networking essentials first followed by NT server, Workstation and then enterprise. After the server exam workstation and enterprise are a piece of cake. I not sure about what electives you want but I did TCP/IP and exchange which were fairly easy. I would recommend the cybex study guides and the transcender exams for transcender corp. That is all we used and out of 15 of us we all passed the exams on first try. Most of the exams like exchange server were either straight from the test questions in the cybex books or from the transcender questions.

Hope this helps,
Banyan99 MCSE, MCSE+I

you help is much appreciated.  particularly re: the suggestions for reference material...there is an awful lot available and it is difficult to know which might be best.  as to the electives, i am planning tcp/ip (70-59) and iis 4.0 (70-87).  again, thanks for you input.
