How many tests are there for MCSE certification
Posted on 2011-10-19
I'm looking to get my MCSE certification. I've been a Systems Administrator for 9 years with no formal education in IT.
I'm running things like:
Windows 2003 Term Servers with approx 300 users using AD and GPO's
IBM AIX, running Progress Database
Multiple Xen Servers that run Domain Controllers, Print Server, CentOS, and so on.
Needless to say, I fear if I were to ever be hire able I'd need more then experience. So was looking at the MCSE Certification.
I already have the books but was wondering, should I skip the MCSE and start the MCTS classes? Or get MCSE and upgrade with a couple more tests. the second question is, when you take the MCSE test, is it 7 tests, or 3 tests?
Do I study Managing and Maintaining a Windows Server 2003 Environment
And go take, Exam 70-290
Then study Implementing, Managing, and Maintaining a Windows Server 2003 Network Infrastructure
And then take, Exam 70-291
Or are these grouped together in one test for this section?
