    Thanks everyone.

    I was going to go for the 70-270 next which would probably be the easiest. But I fancy a change and a 'crack' at Vista so 70-620 here I come :)

    Think I have posted a few times in the MCDST forum and on PM's to various people. Just a quick recap for anyone who is interested.

    1. I start of reading the MS Press book and make notes on relevant points that I could either forget or need to reinforce. I normally study for around 1 hour per day weekdays and 2 hours per day at the weekends. I manage to get the MS Press book down to around 100 - 150 pages of A4 note paper.

    2. Once I have finished the MS Press book, I then use CBT Nuggets. When I have watched the first objective video, I then take the Objective Exam in the MS Press book. The purpose of this is to reinforce the oldest material that I have learnt.

    3. I then keep going over my Notes on a daily basis at work, during lunch, in the evening. Just a brief flick threw.

    4. The last of all I take the MS Readiness Review tests on a daily basis. Normally do around one a day for three days before the exam as not to get to many questions repeated. Also in my limited experience so far, the MS Readiness Review has always been alot harder than the exam.

    5. Take the exam!

    Hope that helps some people out.
