    It's not a case of "value". They are there to confirm your experience and knowledge so you would take whichever course is appropriate to the work you're doing.

    If you're not working in a server envirnoment or with Cisco kit then you probably shouldn't be looking at either initially.

    The CCNP certificate is made out of gold.

    So that's pretty valuable.

    Although i see what you mean UKD, there is value in it for your CV IF the required experience is there also. Otherwise who would spend the money we do on getting certified if there was no value having the cert.

    Err, I thought that's what I'd said. However, I suspect the OP is either not in IT or has very limited experience, else the question probably wouldn't have been asked.

    I think your MCSA cert is worth a fiver and MCSE a tenner. Alternatively if the kids have run out of paper to draw on . . .

    Seriously tho, a cert is only valuable if you use it in your job. If you don't use the knowledge gained its pretty worthless. Its all about gaining skills you can use IMO. That GNVQ Wicker Basket making I have is a total waste unfortunately. . .

    To me your post implied there wasn't any value. You said it isn't about value, but if we didn't do it for the value it can add, why do we do it.

    A cert is designed to show your job experience within a certain area but there are certs that designed to show you are starting out.

    certs like CCNA, MCSA,MCSE are for people who already work in those certs related areas wheras certs like A+,N+ and MCDST are for people working towards are just starting out in IT.

    Wait a second.... that sounds worryingly like a useful response.

    'Most valuable' is very difficult to define as a lot depends on your job role, as GBL says if your not yet working in IT (support) then certs like the CompTIA A+, N+ and the MCDST are useful for proving a basic level of competence in the technical side of computing.
