    Congrats! So what's next? The 70-272?

    With all this passing going on lately it's motivating me to get my arse in gear and get to work on that 70-270! :)

    Thanks for the beers zimbo.
    I used the MS Press MCDST Self-Paced Training Kit and the Sybex MCDST Microsoft Certified Desktop Support Technician Study Guide. The MS Press book does just the 271 and the Sybex covers both 271 and 272.
    EDIT: I forgot to mention that I also use Cramsession papers before every exam. I usually read the whole thing the night before, no matter if it's 30 pages for 271 or 90 odd pages for 290.

    I must say though that I only read the first 2 chapters of the MS Press book and the first 3 of the Sybex. Then I realised that all the material was covered in the books for 270 and I just skimmed through the rest thinking yep, I know this, yep that's clear etc.

    It's basically a review of 270 if you like. Maybe I just found it to be easy as I did the 270 exam a month ago but it's a good foundation for people going forward from A+ and N+. I seem to be doing it ar$e about, 290, 270 and then 271, but then again the exams seem to get easier this way. :blink

    Just to put into perspective I got a 842 for the 270 and 949 for the 271.:oops:
