Introduction IntroductionWelcome toMCITP 70-623 Exam Cram:Supporting and Troubleshooting Applications on a Windows Vista Client for Consumer Support Technicians.Whether this book is your first or your fifteenthExam Cramseries book, you'll find information here that will help ensure your success as you pursue knowledge, experience, and certification. This book aims to help you get ready to take and pass the Microsoft certification Exam 70-623, "PRO: Supporting and Troubleshooting Applications on a Windows Vista Client for Consumer Support Technicians." When you pass this exam, along with Exam 70-620, "TS: Windows Vista, Configuring," you will earn the Microsoft Certified Information Technology Professional (MCITP): Consumer Support Technician certification.This Introduction explains Microsoft's certification programs in general and talks about how theExam Cramseries can help you prepare for Microsoft's latest certification exams. Chapters 1-5 are designed to remind you of everything you'll need to know to pass the 70-623 certification exam. The two practice exams at the end of the book should give you a reasonably accurate assessment of your knowledge--and, yes, we've provided the answers and their explanations for these practice exams. If you read the book and understand the material, you'll stand a very good chance of passing the real test.Exam Crambooks help you understand and appreciate the subjects and materials you need to know to pass Microsoft certification exams.Exam Crambooks are aimed strictly at test preparation and review. They do not teach you everything you need to know about a subject. Instead, the authors streamline and highlight the pertinent information by presenting and dissecting the questions and problems they've discovered that you're likely to encounter on a Microsoft test.Nevertheless, to completely prepare yourself for any Microsoft test, we recommend that you begin by taking the self-assessment that immediately follows this Introduction. The self-assessment tool helps you evaluate your knowledge base against the requirements for becoming a Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist (MCTS) and is the first step in earning more advanced certifications, including Microsoft's IT Professional and Professional Developer (MCITP and MCPD) and Architect (MCA).Based on what you learn from the self-assessment, you might decide to begin your studies with classroom training or some background reading. On the other hand, you might decide to pick up and read one of the many study guides available from Microsoft or third-party vendors.We also strongly recommend that you install, configure, and play with the Microsoft Windows Vista operating system. Nothing beats hands-on experience and familiarity when it comes to understanding the questions you're likely to encounter on a certification test. Book learning is essential, but without a doubt, hands-on experience is the best teacher. The Microsoft Certification ProgramMicrosoft currently offers multiple certification titles, each of which boasts its own special abbreviation. (As a certification candidate and computer professional, you must have a high tolerance for acronyms.)Certifications for end users are listed here:Microsoft Office Specialists--Recognized for demonstrating advanced skills with Microsoft desktop software (including Microsoft Office).These older certifications are associated with the Windows Server 2003 operating system and related network infrastructure:Microsoft Certified Professional (MCP)--For professionals who have the skills to successfully implement a Microsoft product (such as Windows XP or Window
