All of this MCDST malarky got me curious

    ..so i decided to book myself for the 271, 272 for today to see what all this MCDST rage was all about
    I had the 271 booked for 10:30 and the 272 booked for 2:30 (i was meeting somebody for lunch inbetween)
    i ended up doing the 271 in 40 minutes, scoring 933, and then i asked if i could do the 272 straight after, which i did in 30 minutes scoring 884!

    Woop woop

    933 is actually my highest score on a MS test but that's understandable considering the exams i've done.
    But yeah.. i'm MCDST now :biggrin

    In all honesty, i didnt really revise for it, found some free cram sheet this morning before my 271 exam which i skimmed over, but to be fair, all of the knowledge i've learnt from 270 and general computer use of x years allowed me to pass. All the better now though considering i have a qualification for it :) Questions were quite blatant and easy- i think i had 49 in 271 and 40 in 272. 271 was mostly about shares and 272 was mostly about IE settings. Pretty sure that's all i can say (if it's not too much already)!

    Thanks anyway guys, I wouldn't have taken the MCDST if it wasnt for you, but it also counts towards my baby MCSA ;)

    291, 299 then Security+ next :D

    Well done mate, I failed the 272 but put this down to not enough experience.

    :x ooooooooooo I'm so jealous. I just got my book two days ago, I'm going to take a couple practice exams and see where I'm at, if I think I can handle knocking out 271 I'm gonna book for the end of the month.

    Super Grats by the way!
