According to MCP Magazine, there were over 200,000 current Windows 2000 Server MCSEs at the beginning of 2003, and an additional 1.2 million MCP looking to become MCSEs. Syngress has launched a complete line of MCSE 2003 Study Guide/DVD Training Systems(Core 4 plus 3 most popular electives) to publish simultaneously with the launch of the exams. While many industry analysts view the certification market as flat, the reality is that there has been a dramatic reduction in the number of certification series being published since MCSE 2000 and the handful of quality series left should all garner significant gains in market share. The Syngress series was formally published by McGraw-Hill, and the core titles averaged over 40,000 units in retail sales while the electives averaged over 15,000 units each.
Through aggressive promotion to our over 70,000 registered users of MCSE 2000 books, strong representation in the retail channel, and the inclusion of a DVD, this comprehensive and unique package is wellpositioned to attract a major share of the MCSE 2003 certification market.
