2012 MCSA/MCSE Boot Camp Suggestions? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

             I've searched through the forums for threads about boot camps but most are just general questions asking if they are worth it. I am going to attend one for (budget approval depending) either 2012 MCSA or 2012 MCSA/MCSE: Cloud Infrastructure. Does anyone have any experiences, or suggestions on who to go through for a boot camp? A quick google search rendered quite a few options -- just wanted to poll the crowd here and hopefully I can get some good feedback.

    Thanks!!

  • Without a doubt, Mountain View Systems in Fort Collins, Colorado. The Windows Server instructor, James Carrion, is MCM: Directory Services certified. I attended and returned to my job with an immense understanding of what I learned and quickly implemented various solutions in our environment that I learned through the training. I went having never taken a Microsoft exam and left MCITP: Enterprise Admin certified. I would go back in a heartbeat. They discourage brain dumps.

  • I would personally avoid bootcamps like the plague.  I've been to two, one for Vista/Server 2008 and another for Linux+ and they were a waste of money.  They tend to either be a teacher feeding your practice test questions that are actually braindumps, of course you don't know that until you actually sit the test and all the questions looks familiar.  OR the teacher ends up reading the same book you can buy and your only advantage is that you have someone to ask what you don't understand but with the proliferation of the internet nowadays would you really pay a couple thousand dollars to ask a question?  

    Be kind and Mark as Answer if I helped.
