    Got an email just now saying its been a year since I first become an Microsoft Certified Professional, how am I doing, still using the MCP site etc from MS.

    Mad to think I didn't have any certs other than ITIL a year and a day ago. For anyone wanting to know how long an MCSE takes. . . . experiences differ but I'm 1 exam away and its taken me 1 year 1 month and 2 weeks assuming I pass 294 a week next thursday.

    Just thought I'd chat bubbles to yall

    7 for plain MCSE, 8 for MCSE: Security or MCSE: Messaging.

    4 for MCSA or 5 for MCSA: Security or MCSA: Messaging.

    I'd of been all done and dusted if it wasn't for Certforums ha ha So many generous people on here have given me free exam vouchers when MS have had offers on. All 3 of my MCTS's were freebies :eek:

    Fergal get your finger out lad, your making me look like a cert junkie!
