    Hey all,:D
    been some time since ive been on here. I was hoping someone could shed some light on this query. Just to give you a little background info, been out of IT for a little while due to poor health :rolleyes: but now that im on the road to recovery im having to play catchup at work, one of which is to get my MCDST out of the way.
    Just looking at the thick MCDST books gives mes the shivers so i was looking at a fast track method just to restore some confidence and boost my morale. Anywhoo i came across this website actual answers.com
    My question, does anyone have any experience of these websites or used them? Whats the difference? did you pass quicker. is it worth the money? or is it a scam?
    i just want to be able to pass the exam(sounds like a cliche i know) but i have most of the practical knowledge.. just the niggly bits pull me down.
    Any help would be appreciated.
    thanks

    It sounds like you are asking for information on braindumps. :rolleyes:

    You should be seeking to learn the *theory*.

    Please read our braindump policy before posting again..

    Avoid using BD's mate. Despite what you think you may know, if you were going to fail an exam, you shouldn't be certified in it. After all it's MS that's testing you on the knowledge required to become certified, which includes the niggly bits... Just go over your material again and get a secondshot offer if you're scared of failing, much easier and you'll be worth your cert when you get it!

    Good luck :)

    You need to understand all the topics, pretty much inside out.

    A good start would be to visit Microsoft's web site and view the MCDST cert requirement and reading recommended manual. Best wishes and yes please, stay clear of brain dumps.

    Using a braindump to get the exam answers will not help you improve as an IT professional, which is what certifications are from one perspective, validating your commitment to the profession, put in the work and you will reap the rewards.

    You can spot a braindumper a mile away when working with them, and we soon lose sympathy when they cant do their jobs properly.

    Good luck with your study :)

    Since you have worked in IT before, doing the MCDST will probably be a cakewalk. The thickness of the book does look daunting (presume you mean the MS one) if you just skim through it but I think it is well written and easy to understand.

    Perhaps you can just concentrate on the weaker areas? Surely you know the desktop environment inside out and can skip that? Also there's quite a bit of overlap between the 2 exams so you skip a bit there. About a third of the book are answers to the end of chapter questions anyway! :biggrin

    Another advantage of using books for study,from microsoft press is the voucher for discount on the exam.Plus i like to have the book to look back and refresh my knowledge.


    Braindump= "all the gear but no idea"

    Its taken me 10 years to get where i am at present.The hardest thing for me is that i do not work in IT.Hands on experience is only at home and helping other people out.Only when i get my qualifications and a lucky break in IT will the real learning begin.
    Just my own opinion.
