Don't be afraid of the MCSE's. If it wasn't on the course, they can't answer the question. I'm not one myself but I once learned the course before doing a round of interviews. I asked every MCSE something directly from the course texts (90% got it right) and something very closely related but not directly from the course texts (nobody got it right). These days, I don't even bother interviewing people with MCSE. The last MCSE we employed didn't realise that ethernet needed a cable connected to the PC....

Apologies to anybody who actually has that qualification. The fact you're on this list indeminifies you. But you wouldn't get a job in my team.
