Anonymous 11603, Experiance is everything but the HR has no clue about the in's and out's of IT so they base their decisions on certs. I am too poor to afford certs. but like you am willing to duel any certified tech. Certs are required to make any money. I have no certs so I make no money.

Concerning the "paper chase" of certifications. Being in the business for over 25 years I have mixed feelings on the subject. First, I have no certifications yet I will duel with any "certified" techie. A piece of paper means nothing without experience. I've seen numerous "certified" people that could barley install an OS let alone manage a network. On the other hand, I'm beginning to get certified because it will means "MORE MONEY". Certification is good in one sense in that it indicate you had to make some effort to learn or as in some cases memorize material. Yet, a piece of paper alone does not equate to job related knowledge. Know too many people with certifications and degrees enough to cover a wall yet, ask them to do a particular job and it's.. duhhhh????

MCSA is a great credential even so if not recognized by many companies , Fact :
Knowledge is Power , learning is the key !
if you have what it takes to be a systems administrator then find another Company which apreciates your efforts ..

Many companies will not recognise MCSA if you don't have a diploma or a degree. MCSA and Microsoft Certifications are useless paper worth only for the memorial of grand children.

I've passed 210, 215, 217, and 224,
what else do I need for MCSA

Mike B, you are correct (and I am wrong). The vouchers do expire on Dec. 31, 2003, not 2002 as I had mistakenly written. I've corrected the story to reflect that above.Sorry for the confusion!
