I've always personally taken anyone who said "but I'm an MCSE" with a grain of salt. I've had equal respect for the A-plus and Net-Plus certifications, which are basically bought.
I used to have more trust in the /CC../ certifications but I find I may be laughing those off too quite soon.
MCSE - Microsoft-claimed Substitute for Experience.
A-Plus - The only possible grade in a pass/fail test.
Net-Plus - An accounting term for "how can we net more money with this bull**** certification"
Not one of the above properly teaches you how to run, say, DNS correctly (my opinions on the Active Directory DNS butchery notwithstanding).
I'm sure in time I'll come up with others sometime after I have to argue with green CC.. people who think the paper makes them infallible and prove them wrong with a 20-second search of cisco.com.
