    Hi,

    I have been currently working as system administrator based on windows server 2003, i am prused to progress in my career path by gettting to know more about IT Administrating and covering 1st and 2nd level support, therefore i decided to take an MSCE Course, am i going into the right path.

    I have been out of studies for long, and i am little worried, about the dificulties of finishing it, i am determined as i feel its the best for me, please feel free to leave some advise.

    Many thanks in advance.

    First off, you might want to study the acronym so you can spell it right on your CV, once you get it. :wink:

    The MCSE doesn't have anything to do with 1st-level support. If you're looking for a 1st and 2nd level support certification, you should consider the MCDST. What other certifications do you have?

    How much system admin experience do you have? If you've been working with Windows Server for a year in a multi-server environment, you're probably ready for the MCSA and MCSE.

    That said, you don't need to take an expensive course. Just grab a few books and start studying. :)

    Hi Welcome

    If you have at least one year of experience implementing and administering network operating systems and desktop operating systems. This what Microsoft say, then go for the MCSE but if you havent then get some more experience before doing so.

    Like BM said have a look at the MCDST

    Good luck with the Studies.

    In this case I would suggest the MCSA track. MCSE is more with planning and design. MCSA is more to the administrator.

    That true, depending on what certs/exams you use will dictate how many exams you need to do after the MCSA.
