It depends what you want to use the resulting qualification for. The route I took was to take A+ certification, which then gave me exemption in some of the MCSE modules. Perhaps as a first step, get hold of sample questions for each of the exams to get a feel of the depth of knowledge expected; and thus the amount of time needed for study. Personally I didn't find MCSE all that easy; probably because I am now getting too old to concentrate on studying.
I have just finished a track of the MCSE, and found that the content of the course is demanding. I think the boring part, depends on your course tutor. The tutor on the track I have just finished was excellent, making the week enjoyable.
As for your original question, I think you will have to look at were you want to be in five years time to decide on which to choose from. All can be of great benefit to you in the world of networking.
I agree with LastChip, "But be warned, everyone wants experience and it's not an automatic route to employment."
