Select Certification    and then 
Yes, there are lots of subjects, and yes, there are many different certifications, and yes, it can be confusing to know which examinations are the best ones for you to take - but let's slow down for a few minutes and see exactly what we have. You can also find useful information about various certifications from many of the links at Cramsession Topsites and also the MCSEGuide Topsites.
Why become certified ?
There are many different reasons for becoming certified, not least of which is for personal fulfillment, but if you know the reasons why you are trying to achieve your certifcation goals then you'll find yourself that much more determined to succeed, and to carry on when the going gets a little tough. Think for a few moments about why you want to become certified.

But can I afford it ?
Well, it's pretty much up to yourself how much you decide that you want to spend on training products or specialized product training, and many people really do spend thousands of dollars on becoming certified, but equally many people spend less than two hundred dollars (including the examination registration) and pass with flying colors. If you can afford the best training, and a library full of books then go for it, but if your budget is more limited then it's really not a problem at all. There are many very reasonably priced books on sale, lots of free tutorials on the Internet, and many free demonstration tests that you can download or take on-line. If you can spare a couple of hundred dollars and some hard work then yes, you too can become certified.

But what if I have no qualifications ?
Join the club. Many computing professionals do not have formal education qualifications such as degrees etc, and there is absolutely no requirement at all that you should have any formal qualifications to take any of the professional computing examinations. This is one reason why many people do actually decide to become certified - because they have no formal qualifications to prove their knowledge to an employer. In reality a person with good computing certifications (i.e Microsoft certification or similar) is potentially more valuable to an employer than someone with just a degree, since the Microsoft certifications demonstrate to the employer that the person has practical, relevant real-world experience. As much as other formal qualifications are useful, to an employer then it's the person with the most suitable, demonstrable skills that is likely to be the most suitable candidate for a job.

Which subjects should I study ?
Again, thats down to you. Although some certifications require that you have other related certifications, then for the most part the route that you take and the subjects that you study are entirely up to you. There are more and more examinations appearing all the time, and there is most likely to be several that you are interested in. Take some time to look at all of the options open to you before rushing into a decision. Maybe for your first examination then it's a good idea to pick a subject in which you already have some familiarity - this will give you more confidence than studying a subject that you have no previous knowledge of. Think about what you are trying to achieve.

MCSE Book - Show Details MCSE : The Core Exams in a Nutshell
MCSE: The Core Exams in a Nutshell scores lots of points through its recognition of key facts about the "core four": there's lots of overlap among the exams. Rather than repeat the same information in multiple sections (or multiple volumes, as is becoming standard), Michael Moncur devotes a section of the book to what's unique in each exam, referring to other sections as needed. Each portion of the book starts with an overview of the exam and a list of the chapters' objectives. The chapters conclude with a list of tasks to perform, a complete sample test, and a sort of condensed statement of key facts, suitable for last-minute cramming.
