Hi All,

Just to let you know that i passed the 70-298 exam yesterday, so i am now an MCSE!

Its taken me 3 years to get to this point (And lets face it, you cant stop once the cap has opened)

A big thanks to those here for helping me out over the years, and for some (Sometimes crazy) enthusiasm.

I've decided to go and get the 70-351 exam so i get my MCSE:S then ill probably start working on the CCNA over the summer and then do the MCITP:EA track by the end of the year.

All in all? You havn't gotten rid of me yet!

    You'll probably find the MCITP a breeze, all you've gotta do is study the new technology.

    Congratulations Wedge!

    I have 70-294 exam coming up and then onto 70-298. Once completed I have tried to decide on whether to upgrade and get the MCITP EA or get a CCNA then come back to the MCITP!!

    If anybody has done an MCSE route and not touched any of the Cisco certs you will know what I mean when I say "I can't help feeling that doing a CCNA will really help slot the pieces of the puzzle together, to give me a bigger picture of I.T. infrastructure". You end up feeling a little bit in the dark when you do so much server related study and not much networking.

    I know the MCSE has networking involved, but I mean router config, and that kind of stuff.

    However on the other hand, once I have finished the MCSE +S route, as I already have the client exams under my belt, I was thinking, why not go straight for 70-649 and 70-647 to get the MCITP EA.

    In terms of what I need for my job, I feel like I should have had both yesterday!

    Anyway, again congrats Wedge! No doubt more of the good stuff to come by the sounds of your future certs, you listed!

    Well done sir :)
    We responded to the Year 2000 issue with "Y2K" solutions...isn't this the kind of thinking that got us into trouble in the first place?

    Yeh, I've been workin with ISA for a while now so all i really need to do is brush up on the Enterprise edition side, like CARP and clustering etc.

    I feel it, you're not alone. I also believe that having something like the CCNA will benefit more than an MCITP:EA because it's digressing from microsoft. (What i mean is, you're broadening your skills) If you have an MCSE, im sure most people would be confident in you to perform server tasks, otherwise what the hell i have i been doing for the last 3 years?! lol.

    I forgot to ask earlier; Out of sheer curiosity, what did you use for study material?

    I used the 70-299 book, along with transcender and some rough notes i made. (I wont be uploading them cause thyre not very good)

    Don't get me wrong, the technical stuff isnt easy, but by this time i already knew 99% of it. If i were you i would concentrate on the style of the exam and learn to pick out the information you need because thats the hardest part of this exam.

    I chuckle because that's exactly what I am doing. Just glad to see that this method yields positive results for yet another person!
