I have been asked to study for and pass the 70-401 exams for my job because I will be responsible for rolling out SCCM 2007 in a few months. I have been working with MS AD for 10 years but have never taken any of the exams. I want to begin the process of getting certified and I understand that I should skip the MCSE because it is being phased out. I'm having a hard time finding out exactly what exams I have to pass for the MCITP cert and how 70-401 might fit into that if it does at all. I really want 70-401 to fit in somewhere since I have to take it. I'm summary, I have two questions.
1) What exactly are the exam requirements for MCIPT?
2) Where can I fit in the 70-401 and have that apply to some cert other than MCSE.
