    Hi Guys,

    I tried to search the forums but don't think the question has been posted before.

    Basically I am just wondering, how many MCP exams must you pass before you are an official "Microsoft Certified Professional"?

    Thanks

    Yep, do any MS exam (from the 70.72.74 range) and you become a MCP, the only exception to this rule is/was the 70-058 Networking Essentials which didn't qualifiy as a full MCP credit.

    U do have to do 70-271 & 272 to become an MCP i think, gaining the MCDST at the same time as well. Could be an MCP twice over tho. :p

    You're not getting the hint then?

    The clue is that MCP stands for 'Microsoft Certified Professional'.

    Hi johnny

    So what does that mean then? The DST is two MCP's, so you're an MCP after the first one? Either way I'm one in 70-270 now anyway :D

    Well, that's that sorted then. Had a feeling the DSTs were like mini exams. Cheers
