    I am looking into courses i can do in the future and i want to do the MCSE: Security.

    I noticed you can do the CompTIA Security+ to count towards it. I was just wondering if it would be worth doing that instead of a microsoft exam?

    Any thoughts guys?

    I posted this here as well as the CompTIA section as i don't want to get any biased opinions. This way i can get opinions from both sides. Just in case anyone who answers is more Microsoft orientated or vice versa :D

    You don't have to double post as we all read thru all the parts of the forum.

    To be honest, I would say go for it for the following reasons:

    1. Comptia exams don't expire
    2. Comptia exams are vendor neutral
    3. You get another cert along with your MCSA: S and/or MCSE: S

    And I'm saying this as a Microsoft orientated person.
