    Hi everyone,

    I have recently passed the MCDST and I am considering studying for the 270. I have a year of IT technician solid experience but this did not included much server experience. I have been using computers for a long time and have built one ect, and played about with them in my spare time.

    What qualifications do people recommend for the next step on from the mcdst.
    I am looking for an entry level job but I like studying and would like to study a bit ahead of my experience.
    (even though people say studying and certificates represent your experience which I agree with but to a certain extent I think studying a little bit ahead of your experience helps if you need to do a task that is a bit beyond you and if you ever get that promotion your work will reflect what you have learnt and will come into practice rather than saying you cannot do the task or improvising at the time.)

    I appreciate all replies,

    Thanks,
    Dave
