In learning a specific discipline, say for instance, the technicalities of troubleshooting hardware, software and even applications, there is the need for proper education. Proper education is not just achieved by enrolling in training and a program course, attending instruction-led classes, by buy supplying yourself with appropriate materials and resources.
Acquiring the certification you need in Microsoft Certified Desktop Support Technician or MCDST is not as simple as you one thinks. Microsoft had done their part by establishing the Microsoft Press Books; since their aim is to produce individuals who have impressive credentials and can prove that they successfully acquire the skills in supporting end-users, troubleshooting of desktop environments run in Microsoft operating systems.
Apart from the fact that students learn from what they call Microsoft E-learning during the training, they can supplement the things they learned by exploring more. How is it done? Continue learning by reading books, books, and more books and your resources wouldn’t be a problem at all because Microsoft already anticipated such problem before hand. That’s why they make it a point that in every course of certification training, books are available as textbooks, references, supplements, since in practice books provide better explanation of the topics.
MCDST books are good partners if you are truly serious in getting the MCDST certification you truly want since you could never be educated by what you hear and learn from your instructors alone. Reading books will provide you with greater edge since what your instructors teach you mostly come from the ideas they get from the books.
