    Default Away to start MCSA course

    Hello I just graduated from University last sumer and I am currently working as an IT support analyst.

    I'm away to self-teach myself to get an MCSA qualification, as I already have good experience with XP Pro and I have a 2003 server as well I'm hoping it wont be too hard.

    However I have two questions.

    1) I live in aberdeen, scotland. I've totally searched the Internet and the only place I see where I can sit the exam (not being part of a course) is in Edinburgh (120 miles away), does anyone know if there is a testing centre close to me ?

    2) The 1st exam I plan to sit would be the 70-270 exam. How much will this exam cost me and are the rest of the mcsa exams the same price ?

    Thank you

    1. Try www.vue.com/vtclocator/ and www.2test.com/tcl/ZipCode.jsp for a complete list of all test centers per location.

    2. Around $125, same for all MS exams.

    Good luck!

    As you can see Im also in Aberdeen. Nearest test centre is QA training in Union Terrace, although they are only open 1 day a month..Check often on prometric, as they get a lot of cancellations and i have booked 3exams within a week of sitting them..big time cramming required !

    I have sat a few exams there, but mainly sit them in Glasgow.

    All exams cost Ł88+vat per exam.

    Feel free to pm me with any queries....

    right some good news

    booked exam for 17 March 2004 - in Aberdeen
    there was only 3 places left, so I encouraged one of my friends to get his booking in as well before its too late.

    Better get down to some serious studying and try and pass this exam with flying colours
