    Hello all,

    Just a couple of questions if someone would be so kind to answer,

    1. To gain the title MCDST I have to take two exams: 070-271 & 070-272?

    2. I can take them both at a Prometric Tesing Center @ £88 a attempt?

    3. Its a Level 1 course round about the same as the A+ (Don't shoot me! I mean its not CCNA Level etc)?

    4. http://www.amazon.co.uk/MCDST-Self-...tification/dp/0735622272/ref=pd_bxgy_b_text_b

    These books will give me all I need to learn and pass the respective exam?

    5. And after I pass both I contact Microsoft to get my peices of paper?

    Many Many Many Thanks in advance!!!!!!!

    And yes shoot me down in flames if you must and laugh at my small amount of qual's :(

    Thanks again

    1. Yes they make up the MCDST
    2. Yes only prometric do MS exams now....
    3. Not sure what you mean by level one.. but they harder than A+ exams - apparently because i never took an A+ exam so im not sure - but i have done the MCDST before.
    4. Yes that is one of the books you need, along with the 272 version for the respective exam.
    5. After you pass you will get an MCP number and password via email - you will need these to log onto the MCP site and order your certificates - or bits of paper as you like to call them! :biggrin

    And dont worry about anyone shooting you.. we all once didnt have certs behind our names!

    Good luck! 8)
