MCITP and e-learnings RRS feed

  • Question

  •  I found out my company will be paying for me to become certified in Windows Server 2008. I would like to get my MCITP: Server Admin certification via e-learning. I hate bootcamps, classrooms, and study books, so e-learning would be ideal.

    After researching the catalog here I found some online classes but I would like the opinion of anyone who has used the e-learning route: does it prepare you enough for the exams?

    Also, I would like to double-check my findings regarding the exams and the e-learning courses I should take:

    -Exam 70-640: Collection 6424 and 6425
    -Exam 70-642: Collection 6420 and 6421

    -Exam 70-646: Collection 7245

    Would all of those e-learnings sufficiently prepare me for the 3 exams?

    I decided to take the e-learning course collection 7245, which is meant for people who are certified in Windows 2003 who wish to upgrade to 2008, because I have worked with 2003 for a couple of years but just never had the time or $$$ to certify my skills. Is it wise to do that?

  • There is no guarantee any one training course will prepare you for any exam. This is why Microsoft posts "recommended proficiency" for every exam on their Microsoft Learning site.
