    Default How to MCSE ?

    Hey guys ! I'm trying to find out how to get MCSE and could find out MCP, MCSA before it. But my question is what are other exams in order to obtain MCP, MCSA and MCSE ? Thanks !

    A MCP is 1 Microsoft exam, MCSA is 4 exams together, MCSE is 7 exams together.

    But these days you are better going for MCITP:EA which is 5 exams.

    Click on the Certifications tab for all links to see the qualifying exams.

    It will list on the MCSE page something like this at the top of each section:

    Exams on networking systems: All required
    Exams on client operating systems: Choose one
    Exams on design: Choose one
    Elective exam: Choose one

    So for MCSE that's 4 + 1 + 1 + 1 = 7 exams


    For MCITP:EA it's exams = 70-680 + 70-640 + 70-642 + 70-643 + 70-647 = 5 exams

    MCSE is the old version of exams for Windows NT4, Windows 2000 & Windows 2003 - and as such you shouldn't really go down that path now. The latter is still used but you are far better learning the new exams which is MCITP:EA for Server 2008.

    The things you learn in the MCITP:EA can be translated when using Windows 2003 but you might not have all of the same features... So if you are going to do one or the other go for the MCITP:EA, it's less exams, and newer.

    And even though places are still looking for MCSE go down the MCITP:EA route and just add the MCSE 2008 keyword to your resume and then hopefully that gets picked up by the keyword filters.

    Good Luck with your exams!

    MCSE covers Server NT, 2000, 2003. MCITP covers Server 2008 / R2 and I am assuming Server 2012. These certification tracks are difficult and will take some work. Best way to learn the differences is to use the links provided by Asif and do the research.
