which type of training for exchange

Ok, I have a problem in deciding which traiining is the best. What im trying to ask is which training is better?? I have the abiltiy to go to a"boot camp" for Exchange which will give me the abiltiy to take two MCSE tests which is always good to have or should i go to a facility such as New Horizons which is a learning center. Im not sure which is the better one to go to. I really want to make sure I take the course that gives me the abiltiy to walk out of there feeling like I learned something and that I can now work on and fix exchange. Not that Ill walk out memorizing a book but not really know how to fix a problem when it occurs... any suggestions? I really want something that gives me hands on real world experineces...

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

There's one big difference between a boot camp and learning centers. The former prepares you for the MCSE exam, the latter teaches you how to actually use the product in a real-world environment, focussing less on the exam.

In the end, do the exam once you have gained enough experience. I always recommend against doing the exam without having enough experience since you're simply missing the point (a certificate that proves you know the product inside-out, which you wont after a 4-day course).

A learning center is the way to go; do the exams in a couple of months.

Hope this helps
