    After 5 months being a temp Desktop Support guy, I had enough of rubbish money and crappy jobs, knowing I did have the skills to better my self, I put my CV out there and I have accepted a permeant Desktop Support job at another company, the money is much better and with many more opportunities!

    I have to say, this site gave me the confidence to go for another job, onwards and upwards, need to get on with my MCSE now. :)!

    Congrats... however, the MCSE is suited for people with a year of server admin experience, not for people who are just getting their first permanent desktop support job. All you need at this point is the A+, Network+, and MCDST.

    Cheers....I understand what the MCSE is suited for...but even entry level server roles want you to have a MCSE...I have some server experience and I have some books, add the two together and I have the knowledge for the MCSE.

    That's why you should get some light server admin experience while you are a desktop support tech. THEN you should pursue your MCSA (and later, your MCSE)... THEN you should pursue one of those "entry-level server roles".

    I never said you needed the knowledge... I said you needed the experience. Those are two totally separate and distinct things. Book knowledge is NOT experience.

    You say you have "some" server experience. If you have a year's worth of real-world server administration experience, then you're ready for the MCSE. If you've got a year's worth of experience dinking around with it in your basement, then you don't have real-world server admin experience. I have no idea which category you fall under - I am simply telling you what Microsoft recommends you have before you start the MCSE.
