    Hey guys, I'm currently studying for my MCDST (self study, woo!)
    I purchased Walter Glenn and Tony Northrup's text books (the self paced text books)
    And there's a free £25 course in there, although I'm unsure which 'course' I should go for there's a whole list of 'em;

    EL - INFOPATH 2003
    EL - INFOPATH 2007
    EL - OFFICE 2003
    EL - OFFICE 2007
    EL - OFFICE COMMUNICATIONS SERVER 2007
    EL - OFFICE GROOVE 2007
    EL - OFFICE LIVE MEETING 2005
    EL - OFFICE SMALL BUSINESS ACCOUNTING 2006
    EL - OFFICE XP
    EL - ONENOTE 2003
    EL - ONENOTE 2007
    EL - VISIO 2002/2003
    EL - VISIO 2007

    Which 2 do you think I should go for and what would be the most beneficial?

    (Also I'm having problems redeeming my code but they ain't called me back yet...)

    Thanks!

    if you're doing MCDST, then I would suggest that

    EL - OFFICE XP

    would be most useful - then either

    EL - OFFICE 2003 or
    EL - OFFICE 2007

    or if you want to learn something new, personally I would go for

    EL - VISIO 2002/2003 or
    EL - VISIO 2007

    Well, if you're a server admin, I'd recommend any of the first three. If you're a programmer, I'd recommend any of the last three.

    Well I'm not really anything at the moment, just looking for a helpdesk/desktop support role.
    Perhaps in the future I would like to be MCSA or MCSE, but not 100%, I'd love to be an IT Director, but that's gonna take some doing, lol.

    To be brutally honest, I'm not sure that any of the courses will do you a lot of good at this stage in your career. However, the knowledge may eventually be useful to you. If you must take courses, I'd recommend any of the top three. I would say that Exchange is used more often than Hyper-V or Sharepoint, though all three are useful.

    I guess we're talking about access to the MS e-learning stuff here?
