Sharepoint Learning and Certification

Hi,

I am new to Sharepoint and want to become an expert in Sharepoint with the goal of becoming a Sharepoint Consultant/Lead.

I am currently well versed in ASP.NET and knows much about Microsoft web technologies. What is the best path to take to become a Sharepoint expert with certification? Pls advise.

With 2007 there are 4 exams with the highest cert being a MCTS.
So you can be an MCTS in 4 areas of SharePoint 2007
WSS v3 Config
WSS v3 Dev
MOSS Config
MOSS Dev

With 2010 it goes a higher, read this http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/certification/cert-sharepoint-server.aspx#tab1

Their all pretty hard without hands on experience (it would just be a case of memorizing). I have all the SharePoint 2007 certs... but none of the 2010.

The Dev exams are easiest cos they give you code examples that don't even make sense, so you can get the right answer by elimination.

Hi Raybies,

Thx for sharing. Can also advise what is easy to learn and what is not? Should I learn WSS or MOSS first and is it always config and then dev?

In your work experience on Sharepoint, what are challenges posed in this technology?

Thx both for your the valuable inputs!

One last simple qn, can I install sharepoint 2007 on Windows7 64-bit home edition?
No, use VMware. VM's are your best friend in the SP world.
