MCSE not showing on my Transcript

    Hi All,

    I recently completed the final exam to gain my MCSE (70-294 on 6th Aug 2010). I have checked my Microsoft transcript and it is showing my pass result of this exam correctly, however under the Credential section it is not showing my MCSE 2003. I also cannot download a certificate for this.

    Here are my current completed exams as showing on my transcript:

    70-294 Aug 06, 2010
    70-297 Jun 08, 2010
    70-293 Dec 20, 2009
    70-291 Nov 28, 2009
    70-290 Oct 30, 2009
    70-680 Sep 26, 2009
    70-501 Aug 18, 2009
    70-270 Aug 01, 2009

    Does it take a while for the MCSE credential to show? Reason I am asking is because it is showing the 70-294 I took on Friday and assumed it should automatically show the MCSE 2003 as well.

    Is there a known delay with this?

    By the look at the dates you passed the exams you look like you have being using braindumps.

    Thanks for your reply Onoski

    :rolleyes: I haven't actually but your opinion is your opinion. Just because it might take you longer doesn't mean everyone learns at the same speed. Given the fact that I work in a windows server support environment also helped me gain this.

    bit of a harsh assumption, benefit of the doubt?

    Didn't you know, if it doesn't take you 6 months to do a single exam you must have brain dumped it?

    Although you won't find many people who are as anti-braindump as I am, I agree with Asterix's assessment. Four+ weeks worth of study per exam is not insignificant. In fact, I've passed exams with far less study time than that - does that make me a braindumper as well?

    He's taken a YEAR to pass his MCSE, I certainly wouldn't have said Brain Dumper.

    I think the time taken has been more than acceptable.

    at the beginning of the year, i was generally passing about 1 ms exam a month to get my mcsa, i didnt cheat. but i work for a firm where im in charge of / setup about 14 servers, 2003 and 2008, over 4 national sites.

    the only reason i did this was:
    1) second shot, test my current knowledge (though did revison on the subject, had the books for years) if i failed, i could see what i couldnt answer and learn that area - thou i didnt need to do this as i passed all first time

    2) the only reason i didnt already have the qualification, as i thought experience would be as good as, but with the credit crunch, and i thought maybe it was time to get these in case i need them.

    so i can be done, and to call him a cheater is a bit below the belt

    To be quite honest I studied one chapter (8 - Disaster recovery) which took 2 days and passed the 290 exam. I didn't study for the MCDST or MCP (270) and passed those too. Not once have I ever used a BD, I just worked with these OS's on a daily basis so I knew them pretty well... In fact for the 291 exam, I've really only studied half the book and I and skimmed through the other half because I do it at work. So in retrospect, knowing the material before hand really accelerates your study time.

    I would probably question someone if they had no experience or exposure and yet they are passing difficult exams very quickly.
