Мнение профессионалов
"Подготовка к сертификации включает в себя изучение продуктов и технологий. Возможно придется изучать те части с которыми вы еще не работали. Для новых технологий очень сложно определить то, на что следует обратить особое внимание. И вот тогда важно использовать рекомендации для сдачи экзаменов на сертификацию. Именно они помогут вам сконцентрироваться на главном..."
Jonathan Blair, MCSD for .NET Edinburgh, Scotland

"Наличие сертификата MCSE для нас обязательно. Мы не рассматриваем кандидатов на позиции, если они не прошли сертификацию. Сейчас все наши специалисты сертифицированы. Возможность показать все сертифицированных специалистов в компании - прекрасный способ показать нашу техническую квалификацию для клиентов и партнеров..."

Tony Neuser, Director of the Microsoft Solutions Practice for Unisys Global Network Services, Unisys Corporation

"Предлагая новый проект, иногда достаточно просто указать, сколько специалистов в компании имеют сертификат MCSD, чтобы подчеркнуть насколько серьезно Compaq проводит техническую экспертизу."

Mark King, Solutions Architect, Compaq Computer Corporation
