I'm preparing for my MCDST exams, currently on the first part (70-271) and was wondering if there are any new updates on this exams, are there VISTA and or and Windows 7 questions updates onto the exams? Would greatly appreciate any responses if anyone's taken these exams lately.

Cheers

    Have you already taken the 70-270, are you in an XP work environment that is not changing any time soon? If not I would recommend saving your money and start on the Windows 7 path.

    Thanks for the fast response, well, I'm in a very XP oriented environment and I don't think there's going to be any change soon. I have not yet taken any of the MCDST exam, my first one will be the 70-271 and the next one will be the 272. Should I have done the 272 first?

    That I really can't comment on, and will leave that question to experts in the XP world.

    You can take them in either order. Although I would say the 270 is probably more foundational.

    You'll be fine following this path. Make sure to review a study guide, so that you, at the very least, are familiar with the topics that will be introduced. If you use XP on a daily basis, you should be okay.
