    I'm planning to take my first Microsoft exam (70-528). If I take this
    exam, do I get a MCP Welcome Kit and benefits? Or do I have to take the
    2 exams for the MCTS to become a MCP (Microsoft Certified

    Some complain that they passed this exam and didn't get the MCP
    Welcome Kit.

    It used to be in the past that if you passed 1 exam, example 70-315,
    you become a MCP.

    Also, if you review the current MCP requirements list in their website,
    it doesn't mention 70-528, nor 70-536, nor MCTS.

    Last but not least, should I take 70-528 first or 70-536 for obtaining
    the MCTS?

    Sorry, but I'm confused.

    Hi Thor,

    Now you have me confused! ;-)

    You're saying that passing any one exam of the new series will *not*
    automatically mean an MCP certification? And therefore, will not entail
    a welcome kit ?

    If that is so, then it is certainly news to me.

    Thanks for your reply, but let me say that this doesn't make sense to

    So if I take the 70-315 (Visual Studio 2003 + C#) I get automatically
    the MCP and welcome package, but if I take the 70-528 (with Visual
    Studio 2005) I don't.

    I don't understand Microsoft Certification philosophy here... :-(

    I guess the PRO-series means MCP.
    I believe MCTS means MCP.
    Part of MCTS (one of the dev without 70-536) does not mean MCP.
    I think MS are more confused than confusing.
