One source is websites for MCSE practice tests and exams. Most of these sites offer free practice tests and exams. Some even offer free MCSE, PMP, and other exams for practice. It does take a little bit of time to study and learn the material, but I like to do this for months before a test to make sure I am ready for it. It is also a great way to review any questions that may be on a class syllabus.
The next step would be to join a study group that practices the exams. This will give you a little bit of hands on practice with real life situations. You will also be able to ask questions to the group members and get answers to help with your preparation. Another advantage is that you can keep up with the group and the study material at the same time. Some of these groups are free to join, while others may charge a small fee for access.
I will tell you right now, there are two kinds of people that take these exams. Some of them are really smart students that study for years before taking a test. Then there are the other kind of people who are more like me, average students that don’t have the time to study and their schedules simply don’t allow for it. That’s why it is important to know how long you have to study so you can schedule in enough time. Also knowing the schedule in advance will help make sure that you actually get to study on time.
I really encourage all students to spend as much time studying for the MCSE exams as possible. I really don’t care how long you have to study; as long as you do. The more knowledge you have about the exams the better prepared you will be.
The first thing that I would recommend doing is finding some good study material that will help you get prepared for the MCSE exams. There are some good books that you can buy online that go into great detail about all the subjects that will be tested on the exam. Make sure that the book you buy has step by step guides to teaching the material. Some people try to pass the exams without any real study material, but that is a big mistake. You need to have a real study guide in front of you. A book will only help you if you read it and understand it.
Another way to prepare for the exam is by watching videos. There are several video sites online that you can visit to watch several tutorials on how to study for the exam. I recommend the ones that show you how to take notes, test yourself on various questions and cover everything from the basics to the most difficult questions. These tutorials will save you a lot of time because you won’t have to sit there and try to remember what you saw.
Studying correctly and studying efficiently are two things that will ensure your success on the MCSE exams. There are other aspects to your studying, but make sure that you do them properly. The more time and effort you put into studying for the exams, the more you will increase your chances of passing and getting the job done faster. The more preparation you do the better your chances are.
