Like large companies, smaller companies often look for relevant certifications when hiring IT professionals. However, enterprise-level product certifications are often overkill if the goal is to get hired with a small company where budget constraints often put Microsoft’s higher end software financially out of reach. Smaller organizations often resort to running Windows Small Business Server. As such, earning a Small Business Server certification may prove to be beneficial.

Trouble Spots

Most of the items on this exam are relatively straight forward. One potential trouble spot, however, is the section on migrations. Microsoft expects you to know how to migrate from previous versions of Small Business Server including Windows SBS 2003 and Windows SBS 2008. Although there is nothing especially difficult about the migration process, it can be difficult to locate a copy of Windows Small Business Server 2003 so that you can practice the migration process.
