    The MCDST is retiring at the end of March if you knuckle down you could do it by then. The MCDST is being replaced by the MCTS and MCITP. These are exams based on Windows Vista and Windows 7.

    The MCTS is what you get instead of an MCP when you pass either the vista cert or windows 7 cert, getting both gets you the MCITP.
