    Im currently studying for the first exam for the MCTS, but was wondering how this ties into the MCP stuff.

    As I understood it before, obtaining any of a (pretty large) number of exams on various certification tracks automatically granted you the MCP certificate.

    However, it doesnt seem to mention this for the MCTS, and its not on the list of the MCP exams page (that I can see).

    Can anyone verify that passing one of the MCTS exams gives you the MCP certification?

    Gaining MCTS does not not get you MCP.

    MCTS is the replacement for MCP. The new TS and ITP certs are designed to give a better reflection of what people do in specific job roles than the MCP/SA/E did.
