    2036789, I can't answer for Sparky, but its really a double-edged sword concerning the MS Press books. The MS books are a great way to learn, and I'd say the books are paramount towards passing the MCDST but really it's all down to how confident you are. I don't mean to sound disheartening, but I read the MS press books from start to finish, and there were some questions in the actual exam which the book didn't touch apon whatsoever.

    In a nutshell; the books put you on the right track, but really it all boils down to how confident you are, and your own personal experience in working with computers...

    Like i just wrote in another thread IT graduates currently have one of the worst unemployment records due to the current economic climate . However, does make me wonder why 2036789 didn't start earlier.

    A lot of IT jobs ask for MS certs now so are often needed to just to get an interview. Due to the job market employers can hold out for the more qualified and experienced applicants. Do everything you can to make your cv stand out from others. I am just finishing off my masters degree but have the 70-272 exam tomorrow. This is to complete the MCDST.
