[edit section] Microsoft Exam 70-270: Windows XP
The Microsoft MCSE 70-270 Windows XP exam is a universally-recognized certification exam that tests you in your knowledge of installing, configuring, and administering Windows XP client. According to Microsoft, typical candidates for this certification have already had some experience with Windows XP and have worked in a mid-to-large size computing environment before. In practice, many candidates for this exam have neither worked in a large computing environment or have had extensive practice with Windows XP before. The exam does not test you on your ability to use XP, per se, but rather on your ability to install, configure, and administer the software.
It is important for you to understand that this exam does not cover the actual use of Windows XP, but rather, the configuration of XP for business and enterprise purposes. That being said, a power user would have only a slight advantage over a typical user of XP as the exam does not cover the gimmicks and special features of XP.
