I am thinking to learn VBscript or Powershell, but i am little bit confuse which would be better for me. should i go for VBscript? or Powershell?
I want to chose one which can assist me in my System Administrator Job.
Thanks & Regards,

Both will be useful. Honestly depends on the job and the position you get - but as a system administrator a lot of your job can be automated by creating scripts (either in VB or Powershell).
I would suggest learning both, VB is more universal, powershell geared for windows and scripting withing windows. VB will help you overall while powershell will help you specifically in system administration.
