is it worth getting the 70-686 cert? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have the 70-680 cert. My plan was to take and pass the 70-686 cert. as soon as 70-680 was completed, but other certs had to be obtained first. Now I have some time and would like to finish what I started, but not really sure if I should since the 70-686 cert will be discontinued January 31, 2014. Any suggestions?

  • Only the exam is retiring in January 2014, not the certification.  This means that if you gain the certification before January 2014, it will always show on your transcript and will always be valid.  Given this, I would recommend that you continue with your plan to sit this exam.
