Free Online Exam Prep for MCDST

For a limited time, Microsoft is making its online exam preparation clinic for the MCDST exams free for a limited time.

For candidates who plan to take any exam for the Microsoft Certified Desktop Support Technician track, Microsoft is making an online clinic that can be used to assess one's current desktop support skills. Clinic 2263, Exam Preparation for the MCDST Certification, is a six-hour, self-paced course that covers many of the topics that a typical desktop support technician might encounter supporting Windows XP users.

Clinic 2263 is available for free for a limited time, and it's delivered on the Web site only in English. Once a user activates the free content, it's available for 180 days.

The clinic tackles the same objectives as the exams in the MCDST track: managing and troubleshooting access to resources; configuring and troubleshooting hardware devices and drivers and desktop and user environments; conmfiguring network protocols and services; resolving application desktop and application usability; and configuring application security and security.
