    the MCSA is a great cert to have, the knowledge learnt through the exams sets a stronh standard in network administration using microsoft technologey. It also makes the route to MCSE a lot eaiser as it kind of creates a "half way house" on route.

    MCSA is a great cert. As for jobs, depending on how much work is in your area (and how far you are prepared to travel) is the key.

    Good luck :thumbleft

    It certainly is a globally recognised worthwhile cert. In fact, I would go so far as to say, for most people it is all that you need in order to be a sys admin.

    MCSE can be over the top for many people because if you don't get the exposure necessary ie designing systems from the ground up, your MCSE becomes pointless.

    Go for MCSA and then re-evaluate your situation. It might be a good idea to branch out and look at Cisco or other vendor related certs.
