Obtaining an MCP requires passing only a single eligible exam--which in practice means almost any Microsoft exam at all (with only a few exceptions)--so there really are not any tracks or track maps for this program. I would suggest you spend some time surfing around the MCP site at www.microsoft.com/MCP/ to further familiarize yourself with the program, its requirements and your exam options. An MCSD is a Microsoft Certified Solutions Developer, a certification aimed at identifying Microsoft-savvy programmers. As far as I know, there is no MCSP certification available from Microsoft.
