Any important certification examination requires hard work in terms of reviewing and studying. For the Microsoft Certified Desktop Support Technician, it also requires proper training and preparation. Although stored knowledge and skills are helpful, having enough preparation is still the way to ensure success. Microsoft has produced options for this kind of training. One of these is the book entitled MCDST Self-Paced Training Kits.
The MCDST Self-Paced Training Kit books are really helpful for individuals who want to review on this field during their available schedule. There are two varieties of this book. Each of these aims to target each of the two core exams. There is the MCDST Self-Paced Training Kit (Exam 70-271): Supporting Users and Troubleshooting a Microsoft Windows XP Operating System. Another book is entitled MCDST: Self-Paced Training Kit (Exam 70-272): Supporting Users and Troubleshooting Desktop Applications on Microsoft Windows XP.
These books include important lessons, troubleshooting labs, review questions, and hands-on exercises. Some of the MCDST Self-Paced Training kits also include CDs featuring exercise questions which can be on time-testing mode or untimed-testing mode. Users can also generate the random test function so he can really challenge his knowledge on the field. After the exercise test, the user can look on the detailed explanation on the right answer. Various tips before the exam are also included to provide users the idea on how to ensure a passing result.
Aside from the MCDST Self-Paced Training Kits, some candidates can also choose other ways to prepare for the examination. They can have the classroom trainings as well as the Microsoft E-Learning. All these are useful and helpful to ensure being certified. The only advantage of the book is that it can be used depending on the user’s availability.
