  • Passed 70-270, now an MCP

    Been putting it off for a couple of years due to lack of funds and free time.

    And it's a nice afternoon to spend in the garden

      Ta.

      Iunno... what's the fastest way to get a longer signature than you?

      Working towards MCITP:SA on Windows Server I think. I know I'll have to do another Windows client exam which is fine, todays was really just because I'm far more likely to pass the XP exam than Vista or 7 and passing this one gets me the MCP which will help in the next round of redundancies (in a month or 2). When our HR department score employees they look at qualifications, then years of service and then actual experience is used more as a tie breaker.

      I'll definately be sticking with Microsoft certs for the time being since (to me) they're the most cost effective. Cisco is attractive but very expensive. I do want to do the other half of C&G 2377 when I can though.

            Thanks guys

            Study time... pretty much none. I spent a couple of hours in the evenings this week brushing up on a few rusty areas, but other than that I've not studied specifically for this exam, I've just worked with the relevant technologies for the last few years

                Thanks. Annoyance the first - the Certification Planner doesn't seem to work in Firefox.

                    Doesn't actually work particularly well in IE either

                      The whole MCP member site is supposedly currently being redeveloped. Worked OK for me in IE8, haven't tried it since IE9 came out. Firefox has never worked well on any MS member site IME.

                        I remember when they redeveloped eOpen and fundamentally broke it in non-IE browsers.

                        Technet still works in Firefox for subscriber downloads, that'll be next on the list.

                            This is true.

                            I still find it mildly amusing that Microsoft run Macs and Linux/Unix internally.

                            That said, I found it hilarious when a friend once proclaimed that Hotmail ran on Exchange...

                              Have you installed the IE Add-on?

                              2 2 was 1 2.
