    hi all,
    i started reading the training kit book for 70-271. ive finished the first chapter made a load of notes whilst readng it (bout 35 pages) and after looking here http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/exams/70-271.mspx i have noticed that the first chapter is not on the exam objectives.

    so does this mean that i dont really need to know this stuff for the exam?

    Not read that one, but would say that just because something doesnt appear on the exam doesnt mean it isnt worth knowing.

    I think its useful background, this is the entery level MCP and as such they assume people know little or nothing about the industry that they will be working in. Some of the soft skills bit is useful, but if its not on the objectives then I doubt you will get questions on it.

    I made the same mistake, it is not tested, but is good to know.

    Every chapter is important one way or another.
    Do not skimp out.
    The 1st chapter is in relation to Desktop Support! What are you studying for? MCDST.
