    I am about to start my 3 months of working just about every hour the day brings, so I am not going to have much time for anything.

    I will have a few hours here and there where I will be able to build my new system, study and time permitting travell the 55 miles to my nearest test centre to take the N+.

    Hopefully when I come back I'll have the N+ under my belt and be started on the MCDST.

    Most likely, we are loosing a member of the team and taking on a trainee. The trainee is going to be working with the manager so he can get used to the workload and learn about the servers and systems we use. Whilst I'll be on my own mainly on night shifts but basically I'll end up with something similar to jet lag.

    I will be working Monday & Tuesday days (07:30 - 17:00) Wednesday (15:00 - 00:00) Thursday (16:00 - 04:00) Friday (12:00-20:00) Saturday (07:30 - 17:00) Sunday (sleep:))

    I can say from experience that you'll be facing nearly 20,000 posts: about 2,000 every 10 days. That's the mountain I had to climb when I got back from vacation. :blink

    I'll maybe do a graph of how many posts have people going for MCSEs with no experience versus posts by people who are going with training providers vs people doing self study for certs that suit their experience.

    My guess is the first two will be pretty balanced as TPs talk people into doing certs like the MCSE and the self study part for the correct certs will probably be very low :p
