    Hey guys

    Just booked my 271 exam for a couple of weeks!

    Cheeky I know but any hints, tips, useful info, links, advice etc would be most appreciated as I have been struggling with some practical aspects of the theory as I dont work with computers on a daily basis!

    Kind regards

    I would say, go over your material again. Try out acouple of practice tests from vendors like Preplogic, Transcender, Boson, etc... You could get cram guides from Cramsession for the MCDST. And start playing around with XP on a daily basis :)

    Good luck and let us know how it goes.:thumbleft

    I found the MS Press book very helpful, especially chapter 10.

    I personally found Transcender to be the closest to the real thing.
