You can't help but get an MCP when pursuing the MCSE because it will occur automatically when you complete your first exam. For that reason, I have to wonder if 70-216 is the best place for you to start--it actually requires a fair amount of knowledge about Windows 2000 Server (since that's where most of the IP services discussed in the 70-216 exam, such as DHCP, DNS, and so forth, operate). I'd suggest starting with 70-210 first off, then tackling 70-215 before trying 70-216. Use study guides, exam crams and practice tests to help you prepare for these topics and you'll do just fine.
