    Hey everyone,

    Last week I passed my 272 and I'm working on my 271. I'm planning on taking hopefully with in the next two months. What should I focus on I've noticed a lot of "user upgraded from Windows 98"" questions.

    also what would be a good next cert I'm looking @ either a CCENT or MCSA. I've worked for 3 1/2 years and have an associates degree. I've done lots of server stuff and networking bnut never been "the man" to be the one responsible for it.

    I may be losing my job soon and trying to be marketable (our company was sold) I know the MCDST is a good start but I want to get out of help desk and get my hands more dirty.

    Thanks.

    Getting the MCDST is a great way to get out of help desk... it'll help get you a desktop support job where, hopefully, you can assist with some of that server administration you crave.

    Once you've got 6 months of experience assisting with server administration (not just enabling accounts in AD), the MCSA is a worthwhile option. I wouldn't recomment the CCENT until you start messing with Cisco gear at your workplace... typically after you're a server admin and starting to assist with network administration.

    Thanks for the help :) I've mucked a bit in both worlds my old job there was only three of so we all wore different hats but now I'm working for a large worldwide company. I'm going to go ahead and start doing my MCSA after I finish my 271

    Thanks
