By: Michael Trapp

Just type in mcse certification in google and you will see thousands of results. How is one to make a decision on which mcse books to buy, what kind of training material to use , which test to take first, which ones are not brain dumps,etc. Alot of people don't know how long to study, what they should be getting on practice test, or how many different mcse certification books they should read.Here we are going to review the different types of training material there are and give you our picks of each group.


MCSE Certification Books
Training books are by far the most used training material used. Books are great you study almost anywhere, you can mark in them,most of them have practice tests and online versions if you like reading ebooks. Our favorite book series for the MCSE has to be Microsoft's MCSE Self-Paced Training Kit. These are great, they come with 180 day trial editions of the operating systems you need, the format is clear and easy to read, and the books do a fantastic job of outlining WHY you are learning something, not just WHAT you need to know to pass the exam. These books would be a great investment to your career future.

MCSE Certification Practice Tests

Just don't go down the road of braindumps. You learn little, and degrade the certifications even more than they are now. Braindumps are bad. That said practice tests are probably the most important part of your training. They get you thinking about problems and how to solve them. The most important part of taking the practice tests are reviewing the ones that you missed. Our pick in the practice tests category has to be Transcender. These guys have been around forever and know how to write questions. They provide the most realistic exam experience outside the real thing.

MCSE Certification CBT's

CBT stands for Computer Based Training, these are great because they show you how to do it instead of
telling you how. These CBT's don't replace Books and practice tests but they are a great addition to them.
Our pick in this category has to be Cbt Nuggets. The quality is great, the instructors are very knowledgeable and have great speaking voices. They also mix in some jokes and try to make things fun and interesting. Thumbs up to Cbt Nuggets.

MCSE Audio Training

Last buy not least we are going to look at MCSE Training in audio format. This is by no means a replacement of books, but a great addition. In this day and age where free time is so scarce, these are perfect. You can listen to them while working out, while working,or while in the car. Our pick in this category has to go to Audiocerts.com. The questions are great, and every question has an answer and explanation. Not only that they seem to be the least expensive.

Conclusion
The most important thing to remember is to use alot of different training material. Using training materials
from each of the categories listed above are sure to get you a passing score. Good luck on the exam.
