mcp cert

Hello,
I want to start taking some Microsoft exams. I thought that if I pass one of the exams, I can says that I am an MCP. If that is true, anyone know which exam accomplishes this? I was hoping that one of the windows 7 exams would make me an MCP. I have the books for exam 70-680 and 70-685. Would passing one of these equal an MCP?

That is correct.  Passing one or the other will not matter, you will be an MCP when you pass either.  In order to go to the next level (based on the tests listed here) which is MCSA: Windows 7, you would need to pass both.

You can also substitute 70-686 for 70-685 (Source).

Yes you are correct when you pass your first exam you will become an MCP.

If memory serves, almost ALL exams count and qualify you for MCP status.  The one exception as I remember it was 15 years ago - I think it "Network Essentials".  Long since retired.

That is correct Lee.
MCP qualifying exams include all of the exams required in the Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate (MCSA), MCSE, MCSD, and Microsoft Specialist certifications. Microsoft Technology Associate (MTA) exams and Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) exams do not qualify for MCP certification.

excellent! thank you for the help. I guess it's about time to update my MCP - I passed the test for windows 2000, way back when.
