Microsoft Certified Master (MCM) for SharePoint 2010, is a high-end and exclusive training available for SQL Server, Active Directory, Lync Server, Exchange Server and SharePoint Server. The training is normally a three week course, held in Redmond, tutored by the most skilled people on the respective product. First of all you need to pass several steps to even get into the program, then you need to pay the huge fee and then finally get out of the classroom with three exams and a qualification lab alive. If you need more information about the program, head on over to the MCM/MCA site.

Here are more details on becoming SharePoint MCM. And one of the requirement of the program is that you have to pass all 4 SharePoint 2010 exams :)

Candidates must have passed the following exams prior to applying to the program :

  1. Exam 70-573: TS: Microsoft SharePoint 2010, Application Development
  2. Exam 70-576: PRO: Designing and Developing Microsoft SharePoint 2010 Applications
  3. Exam 70-667: TS: Microsoft SharePoint 2010, Configuring
  4. Exam 70-668: PRO: SharePoint 2010, Administrator

The exam format has changed slightly - it is now just one longer knowledge exam plus the qual. lab. –  SPDoctor Nov 7 '12 at 18:46

I would not word the question like that. You have to pass all 4 exams to even qualify to be considered attending a 3 week rotation. You also need to read about 100 articles of content ranging from whitepapers to whole books. You will never get past the "interview" if you haven't done your homework before applying for the class. It's Microsoft's top level certification and it's not easy. Think of it like a really compressed graduate program. You are getting your Master's in SharePoint Technology. You don't "just" walk into a university and goto to graduate level classes and get your advanced degree. You first need your undergraduate degree and decent scores on your GRE. These are equivalent to the professional level certifications in SharePoint offered by Microsoft.
