  • Hi,
    You confused me at first as you are listing the same exam number twice.  For the MSDST you will need to take two exams:

    70-271 Supporting Users and Troubleshooting a Microsoft Windows XP Operating System
    and
    70-272 Supporting Users and Troubleshooting Desktop Applications on a Microsoft Windows XP Operating System

    You do not need to take both exams at the same time but do need to pass both to earn the MSDST certification.
    Here is the link to the MSDST site:

    http://www.microsoft.com/learning/mcp/mcdst/requirements.mspx

    It has information about requirements and links to a variety of materials to help you prepare for the exams.
    Good luck,
