MCSA: Win 10 vs MCSA Server

Did I mess up going for the MCP? Only one more exam and I can have MCSA in win 10.

Seems kind of pointless cert tho...

Server 2016 better?

    No. Yes. But depending where you are now, MCSA 10 might be a lot easier than MCSA 2016, and could provide a good stepping stone.

    Personally I don't consider any cert to be completely pointless and having the MCSA for Windows 10 would be beneficial for you if you're going after a desktop support role vs a sysadmin role in which case the MCSA Server 2016 would be more helpful. Either way, learning something new is never a bad thing and the more you can add to your resume the better! Finish the MCSA Windows 10 and then go for the Server 2016 if you're interested in that as well!
    All the best,

    No, I view the desktop MCSA's as a valid pathway towards server MCSA's. At least it was when I did Win7 and then Server afterwards, although I should have done Win8 instead of 7.

    Unless you have sysadmin experience, jumping right into the server cert game can be a little bit daunting, actually.
