    Anyone taken this? This counts towards MCSE and will be my first microsoft certification, so it would get me my MCP.

    Looks good on a resume, no matter how useless you people say they are. It's not the certs, it's the "willingness to continuously learn" that is illustrated by the latter.

    you'll want to study for a day or 2 before. I know xp very well but I don't memorize microsoft's minnimum specs, I know from experience that putting it on anything less than a p3~700Mhz with 256+ ram is a waste of time. You will need to know a lot of useless specifics like that for the test.

    edit; after further review i guess i trashed the practice tests

    Certs just mean you can memorize and spit out the information, not comprehend the information. Hence why 90% of certs (IMO) are useless.

    With all those study guides that are 95% identical to the actual exam, it's a joke.

    I have a couple certs here and there (A+, Net +, MCSA 2000). At first I thought they would be good to have. I took most of them during college.

    I guess it would depend on the job. I see plenty of IT job postings that require certain certifications to apply.

    Usually those certs are there just to prevent joe-schmoe from applying.
    Recently IT' jobs I've applied for said they would wave any cert's needed since I have a degree. Too bad I'm getting out of IT and going PR/Communications. :sadwavey:
