According to MS, you will do best if you have a year or more of hands-on, day-to-day experience working with Windows 2000 (or other acceptable versions). That said, if you systematically tackle hands-on projects, learn the software as you study and try your best to understand and master how Windows really WORKS, you should be able to gain the experience you'll need to pass the exams in the six or more months it will probably take you to thoroughly prepare for all four necessary exams involved in obtaining this credential. Good luck!
