  • As far as I know, Microsoft does not make public when they change the questions. They just change some of the questions in the exams whenever they consider adequate, and no announcement is made in that regard. The questions can change at any time. And anyway, in theory, no one should know beforehand what those questions are, since the exam NDA forbids any examinee to reveal the questions that appeared in his/her exam.

  • I believe the OP may be talking about the exams being retired on 30th June.

    Here is a list of exams expiring on 30th June http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/certification/exam-dev.aspx#tab4

  • As an MCITP you dont have to worry about it expiring, and if you are studying correctly and learning the materials, you should be prepared to answer any questions pertaining to the MCITP track
