You will also gain valuable experience and knowledge that makes you more marketable and gives you that edge over your competition. In these trying times, that extra edge can mean the difference in getting the job or the promotion. In fact, some employers require their desktop support technicians to be MCDST certified before they are even allowed to support any Microsoft Windows desktops or applications.
Will Microsoft be retiring these exams soon?
Microsoft has not announced a retirement of the MCDST exams. They continue to hold value due to the fact that Windows XP is by far the most widely deployed operating system in the corporate environment. For more information, see Microsoft's MCDST website.
Our training is extremely affordable, easy to follow, and fun to watch. Our Expert Instructor, Bill Ferguson, literally wrote the book on MCDST certification. He is the author of the best selling MCDST Study Guide for Sybex and a world recognized authority on the subject.
