    :D HI guys,
    I am new and have just joined today. :biggrin
    I am an IT student and presently pursuing for the final year of our degree. Will any one just advice me that if I want to take a MCSE certification which exam should I start first?
    Should I go for 70-270 or 70-290?
    Your suggestion will be greatly appreciated.

    The majority of people start with the client exam (270) and then move on from there.

    Depending on your experience this may be a good place to start.

    i was also wondering, is it necessary to do network + before mcp, because i am thinking of doing CompTIA A+ and then MCP, rather than A+ -> Network + and then MCP.

    No, it's not necessary, but is a commonly recommended path to take. :biggrin
