    a good idea to take it with vista right around the corner?

    The XP MCDST will be valid and valued for years, corporations are not going
    to be jumping to Vista immediately, besides, its not out yet and has been
    promised many times before. XP will be a vailid business platform for another
    3 to 5 years opinion.

    There are only 2 tests after MCDST to get the MCSA? (I only ask because I
    got my MCDST this year, and the firm that I work for wants me to go get my
    MCSA next year).

  5. No, there are three. The MCDST can count as your elective but you still need
    to do the three core exams 270 or 210 desktop exam and then the
    networking/server exams (290 and 291). Personally I'd recommend you choose
    the 270 desktop exam as you'll have covered a lot of the material already in
    your MCDST.
