    Yes, exam 70-271 is valid for an MCP qualification.

    That is no longer true. Most of the new MCTS exams don't give you the
    MCP certification. You get the same benefits of being an MCP (primarily,
    access to the website) but you don't actually get an MCP certification.

    Uh... =NONE= of the new MCTS exams give you the =MCP certification= --
    literally speaking.

    The MCP certification is only available on:
    Windows 2000
    Windows XP
    Windows Server 2003
    SQL Server 2000
    Exchange Server 2003
    Visual Studio .NET 2003 (.NET v1.x)

    and the MCTS certification is only available on:
    Windows Server 2008
    Windows Vista
    SQL Server 2005
    Exchange Server 2007
    Visual Studio .NET 2005/2008 (.NET v2.x/v3.x)


    Ergo, MCTS <> MCP; Period.

    Furthermore, to directly respond to Ravi's statement -- not all
    certification exams result in the award of the MCP title (or its
    equivalent).
    * The NT4 "Networking Essentials" exam didn't count for squat, but it
    was a requirement to earn the MCSE on NT4.
    * The 70-536 doesn't count for squat (by itself), but is required to
    earn any one of three different MCTS credentials on .NET v2.x products. The
    70-

    Luckily as directly relates to Jude's question, passing the 70-271 does earn
    the "MCP" credential.


    However, do not confuse the title of a specific product-based certification
    with the generic name of the program that provides those certifications.

    I've not yet heard anything that suggests that the program will cease to be
    called the "Microsoft Certified Professional" program, but I suppose it's
    not impossible that with the expiration of all those 2000/2003 products,
    that MS might change the name of the program to the "Microsoft Certified
    Technical Specialist" program.

    And, as has always been the case, =all= certified persons are collectively
    referred to as "Microsoft Certified Professionals"; it's just that some
    people have additional certifications (MCDST, MCAD, MCSA, MCDBA, MCSE,
    MCITP, MCSD, MCPD)
