    What is it you work in, or want to work in?

    Windows 7 would be good, but only if you're really working with it.

    Q. Can I access or purchase the MTA certification exam review kits if my school does not have an MTA Campus License?

    A.

    No. At this time, the MTA certification exam review kits are available exclusively to institutions that purchase an MTA campus license.

    Q. Where can I take my MTA certification exam?

    A.

    MTA certification exams are currently offered only to students, faculty, and staff of academic institutions. If your school is set up as a Certiport testing center and it is signed up to administer MTA certification exams, your teacher or proctor can deliver your exam to you. If your school is not signed up to administer MTA certification exams, an administrator or teacher at your school can contact Certiport.

    I could do with something quick and easy to go on as well.

    'Quick and easy' sounds suspiciously like 'can't be assed to put in the time or effort'.

    Not meaning to sound like I'm having a go but harder, more advanced certs are recognized that way for a reason!

    I think you should be asking where to start with your certs on the path to where you ultimately want to be. Rather than a few letters after your name an employer would see straight through.

    Cheers

    It isn't that I can't be "arsed" its that I have limited time so I'm looking for something current which won't take too much studying. I'm looking to get back into desktop support. As I mentioned before I've already got my A+ N+ and have a degree in computing science + loads of experience. I've been working in telecommunications/networking most recently and feel it would be beneficial for me to have a current microsoft cert. Employers love microsoft certified so its what I'm interested in going for, I figured Windows 7 is the future so might be a good bet but like i say I have no idea how much studying or money would be involved to get the cert. Any advice would be much appreciated, but please bear in mind time is a limited factor hence the "quick and easy" which I suppose is relative.
