Top five MCSE books

The MSCE is a Microsoft certification demonstrating skills at designing, implementing and administering current Microsoft Windows server related infrastructures. Certified individuals are considered at the top of their field increasing the likelihood of promotion and a higher salary.

What is the MCSE?

Becoming an MCSE An MCSE is a Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer. They are certified according to Microsoft standards to work in networking areas and operating systems. It demonstrates that the candidate can design, implement and administer networking solutions for business problems based on knowledge related to Windows Servers. To become a Microsoft MCSE, candidates must take a number of exams, seven for Windows Server 2003, including networking systems, client operating systems, design and elective exams, and seven for Window 2000 Server.
To stay up-to-date, individuals must re-certify whenever a new operating system comes out. Another certification is that the MCSA was created for individuals whose jobs don’t require them to design or build infrastructures, but just maintain them. This is considered lower level certification than the MCSE however, or taking extra certification exams for the MCSE if they’re not necessary is not practical. So, choosing between the MCSA& MCSE depends on your job requirements and job goals.

The best books to use when preparing for the MCSE

Preparation While there may be other preparation materials available such as downloadable ebooks, online e-books Microsoft publishes their own books for each exam or series of exams. It seems best to buy those materials written by the same people who will be writing the exams. Websites offer free MSCE books for download, PDF books/PDF e-books/other PDF downloads and study materials to download, but don’t provide information on differences in pass rates using their material versus using the Miicrosoft materials. MCSE Certification Resources For example, MC MCSE Certification Resources, offers free PDF e-books/other free pdfs, practice exams, study guides, forums, and a directory of free resources for the exam. If you choose this route, try to find others who used those materials. Microsoft training materials can be obtained from several sites which sell books and other materials at discounted prices. For example, as of 01.07.11, Barnes and Nobel's price for the MSCE books for Microsoft Windows 2003 Core Requirements only, was listed at $199, yet you can currently buy the same package from Amazon.com for roughly the same price new, but far cheaper used (starting at $39.95, listed as of 228.07.11). As the Microsoft books are expensive and you need a different set for each series of exams each time you need to re-qualify, it makes sense to shop on the Internet prior to buying them. Just make sure that you are buying a complete set of the books which you specifically need.
