Inner Geek – Updated April 2009

This week I achieved MCSE and wrote 2 exams in 14 days to do so. Exam 70-294 and 70-298. I am going to try and do one a month for the next 3 months to use up the last of my exam vouchers from school. Then one every other month to do the upgrades I want, and then we will look at what to study after that. It feels great to have completed MCSE is is a milestone. I have made a small chart of some of the numbers of MCP's By The Numbers, that I got from Microsoft's site, the blue are one's I have and the black are one's I plan on achieving.

So here are my current designations:
CompTIA IT PRO, A+ ITT, A+ DT, A+ RST, Netw
Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, MCP, MCTS Business Desktop Deployment, MCTS Vista Configuration, MCITP Enterprise Suppor
t, MCITP Consumer Support, MOS

The logo's are:

Thanks Nod:

Most of what I have done was part of a retraining program after a work injury. I had lot's of computer experience but no formal training. From Injury Back to Work Again is the first in a 3 part series I wrote about the whole process. About three quarters of the exams I have done so far were part of that program. However 19 exams in 20 months is still a lot of work.
