MCSE is not a course, it is a certification. To earn MCSE, you will be
tested on various skills such as managing the server product, managing the
network infrastructure, designing security, managing workstations, etc, etc.
Certifications are meant to validate existing experience.
Microsoft offers training courses which you should be able to easily
identify from the learning homepage. If you go to the link that MG posted,
, (or from the
learning homepage, select 'Certifications', and then select MCSE) and then
select either MCSE 2003 or MCSE 2000 (whichever you are interested in), you
will see the exact testing requirements. In the requirement tables, they
list Microsoft training courses, both classroom, distance, and e-learning.
You can also view the testing objectives by clicking on any of the tests.
Once you are sure you know the objectives, you can decide if you are ready
to take the test. Once you complete all of the testing requirements,
Microsoft will award the certification. Again, this all starts back at the
learning home page.
Other vendors offer varying amounts of training depending on what you want
to spend. In general, you should stay away from anything that looks like a
brain dump and concentrate on learning the material that you do not already
have experience with. If you have any questions about brain dumps or
particular vendors, I would suggest you research them on certguard.com.
