My story is that I am working now almost 10 years as an administrator, I deal with SQL Server and other IT stuff, most of my knowledge is self taught by reading books, dealings with problems and asking and reading sites like this. Now I want to circularize and certificate that by going to, learning and try to pass Microsoft official exams and programs. Where I should start and what kind of curses and exams I need to look for. I am pretty confused whit so many choices the way I can go.
At one local Microsoft Certified Partner they offered me 4 courses for label of Microsoft Certified IT Professional Server Administrator (equivalent MCSA) Also they are offering "MSCSE" as Enterprise Administrator.
- Do I need both of this one so I can continue learning for SQL Server Administrator?
- Do I need this ones at all ?
- What is the correct name in MS terminology for SQL Server Administrator?
- Does there exist a SQL Server developer calling in MS world or is this only extension for already developers of common MS languages such as C#, C++ ?
