Along with bringing back the MCSA and MCSE in 2012, Microsoft has decided to once again award people who pass one certification exam with the MCP designation, Cravens said. In addition to receiving access to the MCP portal on Microsoft's website, which offers networking groups, special offers and other member-only benefits, those who are eligible will be able to claim it as an approved title.
Not having to wait until passing three or more exams before getting some official recognition from Microsoft should be exciting for people starting down what can sometimes feel like a long certification path.
