    Hi all,

    I was wondering what was a passing grade on the MCDST exams. I am getting
    85% or so on the simulated exams from the Microsoft Press and the Sybex
    books but I want to make sure I am ready.

    I have several COMP TIA certs and am persuing a degree in IT, additionally I
    am a desktop support technician so the theories and hands on ae pretty much
    routine.

    The questions that kill me are in security. The permissions are tough....
    this user needs to write from office but read from home..... tough for sure,
    I say lock them down regardless :)

    Are thee any other sources tht can help me out with NTFS permissions. Maybe
    a web page that has it all in a nutshell???

    Thanks I am new to these Microsoft sites but you can bet I will be browsing
    them quite a bit now. I actually found tem through the tuturial in the
    Microsoft 70-272 book on getting Outlook to be a news reader. Never knew
    Outlook had that capability. :)

    Thanks so much.

    Doug

    If you're getting 85% go take the exam. You're fine.

    As always, you can browse http://www.microsoft.com/technet and search
    for NTFS permissions.

    Also, in regards to using Outlook as a newsreader; this is partially
    true. You can configure Outlook to access Outlook Express for your
    newsreader. By default, Outlook does not have the capability to serve as
    a newsreader.
