replaced the section "MCP (Microsoft Certified Professional)" with the

following: MCP (Microsoft Certified Professional) The MCP certification only requires passing a single exam. Depending on the exam, you are certified as an MCP with that specialty. You can attain multiple MCP certifications; in fact, you will attain several in the process of earning the MCSE certification. In the past, the MCP certification was available only for certain exams. Microsoft has recently revised the program. You can now earn an MCP certification by passing any current (not scheduled to be retired) exam. The one exception is Exam 70-058, Network Essentials, which counts toward the MCSE but does not earn an MCP certification. [In the paragraph above, "Network Essentials" should be italic.]
