No wonder the value of our certifications is going down...

Did anyone else catch Fig 8 in Cermag's latest salery survey? Brain **** have over 17% and beat E-learning, Flash Cards, Internet Groups, and videos as an "extremely or very valuable" preparation method?

    It's not unrare that I read posts here from people who create flash cards to memorize tidbits like portnumbers. E-learning is basically taking a CBT/ virtual course online. And I assume Internet Groups refer to newgroups and discussion forums like the one you just posted at. icon_wink.gif

    17.1 %, and that's only those who found them "extremely or very valuable"... the actually percentage of users will be much more shocking. From a more positive perspective, I'm very happy with the top 3.

    I think Crucio66 was being sarcastic!!!
    But then again maybe not, because the Webmaster is always right even when he's wrong! icon_lol.gif

    Doesn't surprise me. I work with a technical lead who thought it would be a good idea to setup all these new network printers to use DHCP with NO reservations and no exclusion of the server IP addresses. Took him 2 days to call us and have us work it out in 5 minutes!

    And here is the killer.........


    This guy is MCSE 2000!!!!!


    He also was unsure of the consequences of pulling out a network cable out of a server.

    I wouldnt be too harsh on the guy, he may of forgotten some of his training/studying, i suffer from this so i always have my books on my desk should i find something im stuck on and refresh myself, not everything sticks in my mind since the exams as i dont deal with them problems on a daily basis. But untill i get into a 100% AD network ill still be going to my books as my main netowrk is Novel at the moment. If he was a brain dumper then he should of been sacked along time ago.

    Microsoft has tech notes for a reason.

    When you deal with support on the phone all they are doing is looking at one tech note to another...

    Its impossible to remember things that you don't do on a regular basis.

    Yeah but I'm talking basics, stuff that should be automatic in your head, especially if your the technical lead!!!
