Hello,

I am a new member and would like to take an MCSE Certification.Actually I would like to get your opinion about doing a Self Study for MCSA or MCSE.
Is it possible to achieve MCSE without joining a Training Institute,do we have anyone here who has done it.
Any guidance would be much appreciated.
Thank you

You can self study for almost every certification however going for the MCSA and MCSE require you to actually have on the job experience fro 12-18 months. So doing these certs without the experience could actually make your job search harder.

No one starts in high level positions usually you have to work your way up there. Starting certs are compTIA A+ compTIA Network+ and a windows client cert.

I've passed close to 100 exams and achieved 45 certifications (including multiple MCSEs) and haven't taken a training course for ANY of them.

I've done a little work on some of the NetSim labs, but primarily I develop the Boson ExSim practice exam products (along with my fine coworkers). :)

As mentioned above by greenbrucelee, I also recommend starting from A+ or Network+. If you want to go into networking as you mentioned MCSA/MCSE, I highly recommend Network+ first
