MCSA Windows Server 2012 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi!

    I am planning to take the MCSA Windows Server 2012. I've background with servers and microsoft techs.

    1. Is it required to take MTA before taking up MCSA?

    2. During the MCSA exam, is all multiple choice? or are there also hands on(i.e. Installation, A.D Configuration, and other configurations)?

    Thanks!

    The Microsoft Technology Associate (MTA) certifications validate the fundamental knowledge needed to begin building a career in technology; it is not a mandatory step in a more complex certification path, like the one for the Windows Server MCSA.
    You'll find different type of questions in any MCSA exam, therefore you need to have on the field experience to be able to reply to the different kind of requests you'll find when taking the exam.
    I also suggest you to take a look at the following links

  • Hi Luigi,

    Thanks for the response. I have experience with Microsoft Technology and working with Windows Servers as well so was if possible to skip MTA 98-365 exam take the MCSA Windows Server 2012 exam directly. Might thinking to just review the MTA on a self-paced method.

    You can skip the MTA 98-365 exam and go directly to the MCSA exams for Windows Server: the MTA exam is not mandatory and you can just consider it as a quick review if you want.
    Good luck for your exams! ;-)

    Bye.
