MCSE CHRISTMAS SPECIAL !
This issue of W2Knews contains:
As you know, this is a short update in between the full issues of NTools
E-News. Your next full issue comes this weekend. This is an MCSE special.
It was supposed to go out last weekend but while the first messages
were being sent I suddenly got late breaking news. I stopped the broadcast
to let you have this latest update and quickly modify our website.
Here it is: Macmillan publishing has just gone to production with a brand
new MCSE version. It's MCSE+Internet and has a whopping 12 courses, all
100% Microsoft approved for only $199.99. Sunbelt is making it into a
Christmas Special as we are adding some unique extras: A FREE FULL COPY
of performance booster AutoPilot (Value for NT Server is $295), and for
the first 500 early birds we are adding even more:
The Best Selling Book "Time Bomb 2000" by Ed Yourdon and a Y2K Video that
shows you how you can best prepare personally for the millennium roll
over. The value of those two is $39.95. So what you get is:
1) MCSE+Internet: http://www.sunbelt-software.com/mcsecomp.htm
2) AutoPilot: http://www.sunbelt-software.com/autoplt.htm
3+4) Y2K Book and Video: http://www.sunbelt-software.com/safey2k.htm
(Offer valid for Domestic USA only, read on if you are not in the USA)
In short: for $199.99 you get a value of $534.94. More over, this is a
Christmas present you can give yourself that will pay back for itself :-)
But you gotta be quick, only the first 500 get the Y2K bundle!
Earlier this year thousands of you responded to our MCSE Web Survey.
An absolutely ENORMOUS 76% of you is planning to become an MCSE. A recent
question on the Sunbelt MCSE-List showed that the next thing the majority
wanted was to add the "+Internet" exams. The reasons you wanted to become
* Get promoted and make more money
* Get industry recognition
* Get to really understand NT
Sunbelt is happy to support you in that goal, it's now easier than ever.
Just $199.99 is an unheard-of value breakthrough, This is EVERYTHING
you need to become an MCSE fast _plus_ speed up your NT-box. (And get
to know the nitty gritty about the Y2K problem if you're fast)
This is the time of year to whip out that credit card and order via the
web. Perhaps it's the first time you order via the internet. No worries,
it is a secure connection, we use the same company Microsoft uses for
their online sales and we have a 30-day Unconditional Money Back
Guarantee. (it's three mouse clicks to credit back money to your account)
Like earlier this year when Macmillan came out with MCSE Complete, I have
not seen such a good buy in a long time. We have outsourced the shipping
to a very large outfit that can handle thousands of items per day, and
they get your order electronically via the on-line shop. The bugs have
been worked out in the first MCSE wave, so this line should work now.
Sunbelt is in the business of selling software with an average order
size of many thousands of dollars. A $200 dollar item is not something
that is going to make us rich, but we _do_ want you to benefit from
this great opportunity, seen the enormous interest you have in becoming
an MCSE. See it as a service we are providing you, and a benefit of
being subscribed to NTools E-News. If you have received NTools E-News
for free for a while, this is a chance to say thank you, and have
everybody win :-)
We sell ONLY ONE per person via the on-line shop. You want to be fast
because there is limited stock and this one is going to be sold like
crazy for the Christmas Season. Make sure you order your copy before
they are sold out. First come, first serve!! It isn't determined yet
when the publisher does a second production run so the time to order
They are currently being produced and will start shipping right after
Christmas. You card will NOT be debited until after the physical product
actually ships to you. No other company or Online Shop has been allowed to
sell the new MCSE+I this early, Sunbelt is the only place where you can
get this Christmas special!
You can only purchase this Christmas special through the Online Shop when
you live in the States.(The video is USA format only). Shipping & handling
is now only $9.95 for 2-day Air. If you are outside the USA, we have a
form at - http://www.sunbelt-software.com/mcsecomp.htm
and one of our offices or resellers will get in touch with you how you can
get it. (The Price may change in different countries, but you'll still get
your free AutoPilot).
Everyone that did not have the earlier MCSE complete yet and we showed
one of these kits said "I GOTTA have one of those'. There are more
interesting Survey results:
Q: Are you already an MCSE? 18% of you are, 81% are not yet.
Q: How much Time did it take to become an MCSE?
- 7% took less than 3 months
- 18% took between 3 and 6 months
- 20% took between 6 and 9 months
- 21% took between 9 and 12 months
- 20% took over a year
Microsoft Certified Professional Magazine has done a very thorough survey
in the USA about how much more money you can make as an MCSE, you can find
them at www.mcpmag.com
So there you have it, your own FULL MCSE+I kit for only $200, (with extra
goodies thrown in) the opportunity to get promoted and make more money,
get industry recognition, and get to really understand NT. It is also a
great reference to solve problems. 12 courses on one CD you can take
everywhere. You can be an MCSE in 1999, go for it!
To help further, you can also subscribe to the FREE Sunbelt MCSE-List.
It has over 4,000 subscribers. The list is an active online NT community
that helps you pass the exams and discuss how to best study for them at:
Once again, all the MCSE+I info and access to the Sunbelt On-Line Shop are
And to show you that this is entirely real, here is one very happy camper

WITH THE MICROSOFT SITE, THEY HAVE INCLUDED MY NAME AND

(Everyone that has already bought the earlier MCSE Complete has been sent
their update to V1.1b, and in January you can purchase an upgrade to this
new MCSE+I but these are not available yet. Want to know where your update
is? Send email to [email protected] I received mine in the mail today)
You really want to be fast because this item may very well run out of
stock in just a few days just like in June when the first MCSE came out,
especially now that it's Christmas.
Have Fun and do well with your exams!!
