    Hi all,

    I passed the 70-272 exam yesterday with a score of 863. I passed the 70-271 a couple of weeks ago with a score of 849.

    I used the MS MCDST Self-Paced Training Kits. I avoided using the braindumbs my lecturer tried getting us to use as I think they are worthless pieces of s#:t. If you want the best results use the software; Windows XP, Office XP, IE, Outlook Express etc; I installed them in a MS Virtual PC environment so that if I messed them up they wouldn't affect my computer.

    I only have another 6 exams to go before I achieve all the qualifications I currently want to get.

    Nice one!

    How does the MSDST exams compare to 70-270?

    How much extra study is required?

    I studied quite hard for the 270, and found there was a fair bit to cover. The plan was to go straight on with MCSA (290 for me) but thought i might as well get MCDST whilst it is all fresh in my head.

    I would sum up the MCDST as the 270 split as two exams and doesn't expect you to know as much.

    Hi all,

    Thanks for the congrats.

    I got my updated welcome pack in the post. They have change the colour of the MCP card to MS blue and the 'lapel pin' is now magnetic. Plus the certificate was pre-framed in card with a black border.
