Dear Sushil:
I've written extensively about this subject elsewhere. I did an MCSE Study Guide insert for "Certification Magazine" for their May, 2002, issue that you can access at Also, you may find the information on the MCSE program at useful as well (you may need to sign up to get an account and password to access this information, though).

The short answer to your question is: use a study guide, practice exams, and some kind of pointed exam review book (like an Exam Cram) to get yourself ready for each exam, but don't spend the US$125 per exam with Prometric or VUE to take a real exam until your scoring on practice exams is in the 80-plus percent correct range.

Good luck!
