    MCTS and MCITP are the new "versions" of MCP and MCSE/A. MCITP is an umbrella name that could cover a number of things...so look for what is stated after the MCITP to denote the technology. For example, MCITP:DBA or MCITP:SA

    The MCSE naming convention was for W2k3 and prior, and is not going to be carried through for W2k8. The MCSE name is being replaced with MCITP:EA

    Do not just follow path.. You need to target something that help your career. Some IT guys deal with cisco network equipment day-2-day. Some IT guys never touch cisco after they get their CCNA or CCNP.

    Rememeber, experience is what you need not the paper.
