    As grim says, it depends on your job role, and area of work. I take it you ditched the CCNA idea then?

    Why dont you take a look at the MCP courses listed on the MS website (although the MCTS courses are really supposed to take over from them - so perhaps look at those too), and discuss the options with your boss. That way, you can both agree on a course that best suits your role, and one that you will find interesting.

    If you're not looking to go for the A+ or Network+ first, then I'd suggest 271 and/or 272. The first is to do with supporting users running XP, and the latter is to support users running apps on XP.

    Yup... spot on. The 70-271 and 70-272 exams would give you the MCDST.

    Technically if your boss only wants you to get MCP then you only need to do 1 exam. If you do both then you get MCP and MCDST.
