    Hi there, I found this forum today through a Google search for information about MCDST / CompTIA A+, I wanted to see how they compared to eachother.

    My name is Alastair and I'm from Scotland but I tend to go by the online pseudonym "Chartax" which I have used for several years now in online communities.

    I'm 17 years old and I'm still in High school, I'm going to a local college next year to study HNC Computing which will include the MCDST Certification and part of CCNA.

    I'm also studying CompTIA N+ in my free time and I hope that I will also do CompTIA A+ when I'm finished with all of that.

    Anyways, I'm glad to be here and looking forward to getting involved with the community!

    Thanks,

    Chartax.

    Welcome Alastair :)

    I beleive the MCDST qualfiication is being retired in June this year, so that'd mean you'd need to take the exam before June to get the qualification. Not sure how MS will be replacing it if they do (One of the other chaps here should probably be able to give advice on that)

    Either way, A+ and N+ are just as good routes to go down. good luck :thumbleft
