  • Hi Davoe,

    Is it eaxm 70-621 that you mean?  In which case you have until the end of this month.

    Not sure 70-682 is being retired yet.

    The list I am looking at is at:

  • As far as I know they retire upgrade exams around the same time that the product suport ends in this case as its an upgrade for MCDST XP and EDST Vista considering XP support is still with us (April 2014 being the final cut off date)I am guessing it will be a while before this is stopped.

    I would suggest though if you are thinking of using this to upgrade then doing it sooner rather than later even if it just means booking the exam a few months away to give yourself time to study.

    Hope this helps answer your question,


    Regards,
